Vertical flow wetlands (VFW) are a relatively new tool for treating waters acidified by mining or acid deposition.
Using publicly available information, we attempt to track and quantify current water use through the stages of the gas well development process.
Homeowners using wells, springs or cisterns as their water supply should consider having their water tested routinely.
Water test reports of water near gas drilling activity generally have these common parameters.
Methane gas can occur in water wells from natural processes or from nearby drilling activity.
Learn how to test and protect your private water well, spring or cistern.
