Nov 16: Fracking info session

Horizontal Fracking in Bell Acres?

All are welcome to attend a FREE informal program about natural gas operations, often called “Fracking”, and what we have learned from science and other community’s experiences.  

Background: A natural gas well pad has been proposed in nearby Economy Borough, and land owners in Bell Acres have been approached with leases to drill under their property. 

The informational program is designed to answer questions that community members, including land owners, have about fracking and the risks to water quality, air quality, health, and safety. 

Speakers are:
• Dr. John Stolz, PhD, Director of Center for Environmental Research and Education, Duquesne University, “Water Quality”
• Dr. Marsha Haley, MD, Radiation Oncologist, “Public Health and Safety”
• Ryan Grode, Environmental Health Project, “Air Quality”
• Lisa Graves Marcucci, Environmental Integrity Project, “Community Advocacy”

7-8:30 p.m. at 1850 Big Sewickley Creek Rd, Sewickley, PA 15143.  Free & open to the public;  light refreshments will be served. RSVP is appreciated but not required. For questions about the program contact Patrice Tomcik at
