Gas Drilling in Williamsport Featured in New York Times
The gas industry has brought big changes to some of the small towns in our area. One such town is Williamsport, PA, the subject of a recent New York Times story about how the drilling industry has affected the people who live there. Many residents are experiencing immediate economic benefits, but are concerned about the long-term effects.
Williamsport and several neighboring communities have attracted gas companies interested in drilling into Marcellus Shale, a geographic region rich with natural gas that stretches through West Virginia, eastern Ohio, Pennsylvania and into southern New York. The shale contains enough natural gas to meet much of the energy needs of the entire Northeast region.
Drilling could bring much-needed money and jobs into the region, but the industrial process of extracting natural gas has raised concerns about the environmental impact, the New York Times reports, as well as questions about the need for greater regulation of the drilling operations in the area.
