Marcellus Shale meeting for landowners in Warren County Last night.

The meeting was very informative with areas of leases, drilling, well completions and basically your rights. What most got from the meeting was the need to get experts advice on a plan forward and not to sign anything without research.

Water Testing in the Marcellus Shale

Hello. I will soon be getting my water tested here in Lenox, Susquehanna county. I have just heard from someone that a water test will only stand up in court if it is only 6 weeks or less prior to a gas company drilling a well. Is this true? A lot of my neighbors have already had their water tested in the area, will these tests be worthless in case of a problem?  Thank You.
