Gas Well expansion on Pigeon Hill Rd
I am not exactly sure what all the equipment and tanks are on Pigeon Hill Rd, but it looks like an industrial zone. Bravo Button who had a lease with the gas company and has three different well sites on his property said he had no idea they would build this. It has been a year and a half since they started drilling and it looks like another six months before any kind of royalty checks will be seen by most the local participants. Lets hope the checks make up for seeing this everyday on your once open cornfield.
They have started drilling on Thompson Hollow Rd. coming into the forest. So far a few local wells that I know about have been contaminated. One in Stony Fork can lite his water. Don't think it is good to drink do you?
Our creek water tables have been very low this year and we haven't had a lot of rain, but they are also taking a lot of water for drilling. How do you know what is causing the low water in Pine Creek? Maybe both things. Mountain girl, Paula, logging out.
