Gas Task Force Preparing For December Meeting

ultratourA full agenda awaits members of the Potter County Natural Gas Task Force for its final meeting of 2009. The group will gather at 7 pm Tuesday, Dec. 8, at the Gunzburger Building. Meetings are open to the public.

The Dec. 8 meeting will include a review of the economic, environmental and social impact of the Marcellus Shale natural gas rush in the Towanda/Troy area, east of Potter County, as well as a summary of a recent visit by Task Force members to an Ultra Resources gas drilling and pipeline site that is being held up as a model of environmental responsibility.

Curt Weinhold, a member of the task force’s public education committee, took the accompanying photo of veteran pipeliner Fred Milliron and an Ultra representative at the site in Tioga County.

Also on the Dec. 8 meeting agenda are reports from study committees covering: water quality; township impacts/planning issues; taxation; public safety/emergency services; and employment/training and industry technical issues.

Potter County Natural Gas Task Force information is being distributed periodically by email to members and others interested in the Marcellus Shale gas production issues. Anyone interested in being added to the mailing list should contact Commissioner Paul Heimel at pheimel@pottercountypa.net. Potter County Today

Is there any drilling taking place in Potter County ?

"VETERAN PIPELINER" An x-ray technician only knows about the quality of the welds of the pipeline.Which is a very small fraction of this work.

It would be nice if the Commissioners would keep all of the Task Force members posted on the availability of these field trips.Seems like they like to leave some members out of their plans ? Just like the committee meetings .

Post 5:17 am... I have asked this question before and got the same answer.(none)Where are the wells being drilled and how many are in Potter County ?All the tree huggers are in a panic we have a natural gas task force and yet no one can give me a number or location!!

There was a notice on here that anyone who wants to volunteer for a committee is welcome and if you wanted to volunteer just let the commissioners' know. Don't know about the field trip but my guess is the companies did not want 60 people walking out into a gas well site with safety issues and all. Some people like 7:35 like to complain just for the therapy of complaining I guess.

to 10:22 AMEN to NOT visiting the job sites.It is a safety concern and slows the work down.The contractors have enough people standing around "watching",that are getting paid!They don't need more.No difference then any other line of work,onlookers don't need to be there.

Big Deal! What’s all the sweat about? Have you read the latest Pennsylvania Outdoor News? The State isn’t going to be stocking any Class “B” streams anymore. That’ll take care of any of the streams in Potter County, Thanks to the Elite’s!

This "canned" response to cover the asses of the commissioners really pisses me off! Everyone in the annex building knows that if Doug doesn't bless anything - it just ain't gonna happen. The other two are clueless! Morley is even more shiftier then ever!
