The Chesapeake Bay Journal may not cross too many radar screens out there, so I thought I'd pass this recent article along for consideration.
My only comment is that the title should read: Marcellus Shale drilling
See the pic below taken from Wyalusing Rocks. In addition to the actual drilling pad in the distance at the end of the road, how much acreage is taken up by the access road itself, or the cleared utility area to the left at the beginning of the road? Multiply that by 30,000...or 200,000; and imagine the impact that will have on our state forests currently leased for drilling.
