24. Good to hear that NY has not sold out to the natural gas industry like my state has.

PA allows wells to be drilled right next to the public's drinking water supply.



Although fishing has been banned at Beaver Run Reservoir since 1952, the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County (MAWC) decided to allow Marcellus Shale gas well drilling on their property next to this 1,300 acre lake in Salem, Bell and Washington townships.

The lake provides water to 150,000 people in northern Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Three horizontal wells are being drilled by CNX Energy in 2010 over the objections of some residents who are concerned about their water quality being affected. There was a spill at Cross Creek Lake, a fishing lake at a county park in western Pennsylvania in 2009.
