There is quite a bit of news floating around today in the Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling region. In NEPA the local water company in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania American Water is upset that Cabot Gas alleged that the tainted water samples cited by the EPA in the Dimmock Township water pollution fight came from PAW’s Montrose water shed. PAW officials released 6 years of water samples showing no pollution. Cabot gas has not responded. Elsewhere, state officials in Western Pennsylvania are permitting fracking under a dam created lake drained after the Fall, 2011 flooding. Range Resources will pay an extra 2,2 million dollars to help rebuild the dam for the right to drill. Environmental groups are wary of gas drilling under fresh water lakes, especially those that are spring fed. In Ohio, tax payers are asking the Governor to support tax rates on natural gas drilling in line with those in Texas. This would cause an increase in Ohio tax rates currently charged. Pennsylvania, led by Governor Tom Corbett, still has no tax on natural gas drilling to date. Finally, West Virginia may be on the verge of landing construction of the Marcellus Shale by- product cracking plant and its estimated 12,000 direct and indirect jobs. No decision has yet to be made and Ohio and Pennsylvania are hoping that they are still in the running to land the large project.
