Public forum to be held tomorrow on gas drilling

HONESDALE, Pa. — Environmental groups from Sullivan County and Pennsylvania will host a free public forum on natural gas drilling tomorrow from 7-9 p.m. at the Honesdale Middle School gymnasium.
Gas drilling is a hot topic in this area as oil companies continue to negotiate with landowners for rights to drill extract gas that is locked thousands of feet below ground. Authorities say the drilling poses threats to groundwater and air quality.
Landowners stand to profit tens of thousands of dollars. The forum will provide facts on environmental and regulatory issues.
Representatives from Catskill Mountainkeeper, the National Park Service, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and two attorneys will be speaking.
