The Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Council will hear a presentation on DCNR’s new Shale Gas Drilling Monitoring Report at their meeting on July 25.
The presentation will be given by Ken Duren, Biometrician with DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry.
The first Shale Gas Monitoring Report was issued in April 0f 2014 and covered shale gas drilling operations in State Forest from 2008 to 2012. The report was based on 15 different monitoring values developed by agency scientists with input from DCNR’s advisory committees.
The 268-page monitoring report covered impacts to infrastructure, flora, forest health, invasive species, water, soil, air, incidents, fauna, recreation, community engagement, timber, energy, revenue and forest landscapes.
The meeting will be held in Room 105 Rachel Carson Building in Harrisburg starting at 10:00. Click Here for the meeting agenda.
