Amid Concerns Over Drilling, DEP Testing Air Quality in Susquehanna County
The state Department of Environmental Protection is spending the week testing air quality in Susquehanna County. Residents have raised concerns about the impacts of natural gas drilling operations there, particularly the growth of gas compressor stations.
So far, the DEP says preliminary results have not turned up any air quality concerns, but they won’t have full results for about a month.
Susquehanna is the fourth most active drilling county in the state, with more than 800 active wells.
