Marcellus shale drilling topic of meeting

KINGSTON TWP. – A public meeting to discuss Marcellus shale drilling issues will be held at 7 p.m. today at the Kingston Township Municipal Building at 180 E. Center Street in Shavertown.

The meeting is sponsored by the newly formed group, Luzerne County Citizens for Clean Water, and will feature a presentation by Andrew Byers, a member of the Shaleshock Action Alliance. The lessons learned from other regions provide a valuable starting point for identifying areas in which local leaders and citizens can anticipate and begin planning for potential changes resulting from the development and extraction of Marcellus shale gas, according to the release.
