Our partners at StateImpact Pennsylvania have developed a new app that allows you to explore the rapidly growing world of drilling there. The interactive map shows who’s drilling where and allows you to see if drillers have been cited for violations of state environmental laws and regulations.
The data from the app shows that there are 52 companies drilling in the state, with 1,608 active wells. With all of that drilling there’s been a fair amount of violations found: there have been 1,532 citations with fines of $2.8 million. The data was obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
