December 18 Webinar to Focus on Managing Water Wells and Springs Near Gas Drilling
Posted: December 13, 2012
Bryan Swistock, a Water Resources Specialist with Penn State Extension in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management will present this 60-minute webinar on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 from noon to 1 PM (Eastern Standard Time).
This webinar will provide an update on similar webinars that have been presented over the past five years. The webinar will initially cover basic private water system management strategies before discussing specific topics related to natural gas drilling. Most of the webinar will be devoted to discussing updated regulations to protect groundwater supplies during drilling along with chain-of-custody water testing, and a summary of some recent research related to both baseline and post-drilling water quality in groundwater supplies near gas drilling sites.
This webinar will be offered from noon to 1 PM and is accessible at: https://meeting.psu.edu/water1. You can access this webinar simply by signing in as a "guest".
