GAS WELL WATER TESTING

Gas well drilling can impact groundwater resources that are the source of drinking water for household water wells and springs. A single gas well can produce hundreds of thousands of gallons of waste fluids during drilling and during years of gas production. As gas well drilling operations increase in size and scope across Pennsylvania, environmental concerns about their effects are also increasing.

CWM Environmental recommends the following baseline and post-drill analytical packages to ensure safe and adequate drinking water near drilling sites.
