Public Mtg: CNX Gas Well Incident (Jan, 2019) near Beaver Run Rsvr

Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 6:30pm

Join Westmoreland Marcellus Citizens Group, Protect PT, and Mountain Watershed Association to discuss the recent gas well incident at Beaver Run Reservoir. We will discuss what this incident means for nearby residents and the thousands of people who depend on this drinking water source.


In late January 2019, CNX experienced drilling complications at one of their deep Utica gas wells which resulted in pressure spiking at nearby shallow wells. Nine shallow wells nearby the Reservoir were continuously flared for days to relieve pressure. Yet authorities are claiming there were no impacts on the environment or nearby community.

There are 47 Marcellus wells and 3 Utica wells drilled around the Reservoir - the water supply that over 130,000 households depend upon.
