At a recent County Council hearing on ordinances regarding Marcellus Shale, a concerned citizen invited along with Range Resources and DEP representatives was silenced several times as she raised issues related to health and safety while the Council was engaged in negotiations about setback distances for gas wells from residential structures (200', 500', or 2000'). The Council has been reluctant to hold another hearing on the topic, and citizen presence and comments at the upcoming Council meeting may help demonstrate the urgency of the issue.
