NOTICE from Steven White, Economy Borough, Beaver County, PA

One fracking well turns into so much more! – YouTube, April 7, 2019

Economy Council needs to continue to hear from concerned residents. The planning commission needs a direct order from the council to revise our oil & gas ordinances. Keep the trucks off our residential roads and the well sites and infrastructure out of our residential neighborhoods.

One well site turns into so much more than just a well site: Pipelines, compressor stations, pig launchers, and processing plants come with all the accessories.

Please come in support and speak to council….!

Next council meeting April 9, 2019 @ 7pm
2856 Conway Wallrose Road | Baden, PA 15005
