On September 15. 2011, South Butler School Board approved a gas lease with Phillips Exploration, a part of XTO and a subsidiary of Exxon Mobile. The School District joined with privately owned property to form a 640 acre “pool” or drilling unit. Since then, the area has become inundated with gas wells and related infrastructure. Marcellus Outreach Butler (MOB) asked then - and asks still, “What are the risks and impacts of placing such fracking activity so close to human habitats, especially a school campus?”
Join MOB to discuss concerns about the intensive drilling near Knoch Schools Campus and Saxonburg.
PART 3 - August 29 at 7 PM: EHP’s Sarah Rankin and Nathan Deron will discuss the potential impacts of fracking.
