"Not In My Backyard"

The parcel of land on this map link below is where my "Frac Attack" nightmare began.....and ended...thanks to Ron Gulla and many others who answered my questions truthfully.

On April 23, 2010, a seller I was negotiating with told me he signed a gas lease. This property is above Canonsburg Lake and within drilling distance of my home, about 4,000 feet away.

Of special concern is the fact that this proposed well is near the Columbia Gas transmission lines. And with about 90 acres of space on this site, there is plenty of room to build a nice big plant.
This increases the chance that this site could become a permanent gas processing site. A place where the 'dirty' gas is cleaned and highly volatile condensates are removed and collected.

Transmission line sidings are valuable to drillers for moving processed gas. Processing plants are obvious high risk contamination sources.

Look for land shaded with pink + plus signs
