Water Quality

Lessee shall have Lessor’s current water supply sampled and tested prior to spudding of any well drilled on the leased premises, or drilled on acreage unitized with the leasehold. Should Lessor experience a material adverse change in the quality or quantity of Lessor’s water supply, during or immediately after the completion of Lessee’s drilling operations, Lessee shall, within 48 hours of Lessor’s written request, cause Lessor’s water supply to be sampled and tested by a qualified and independent third party at Lessee’s expense. Should such a test reflect a material adverse change as the result of Lessee’s drilling operations (If such test reflects a material adverse change in the Lessor’s water quality or quantity, then it shall be presumed that the same was caused by the Lessee’s operations)in that instance, Lessee agrees to provide Lessor with potable water within 48 hours and until such a time as Lessor’s water source quality and quantity has been repaired or replaced with a source of substantially similar quality, to as close to pre-drilling status quo as reasonably possible, with all reasonably related costs of repair and maintenance to be paid by Lessee.

 

 Business Friendly PaDEP Asks Drillers " Please don't Pollute our water" - Why not an Order?

 Marcellus wastewater shouldn't go to treatment plants
Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Because of high levels of dissolved solids and bromide in rivers and streams used for public drinking water sources, the state Department of Environmental Protection has asked all Marcellus Shale operations to voluntarily stop disposal of drilling wastewater at 15 municipal sewage treatment plants.

The request -- specifically not a departmental "order" that carries legal weight -- asks drillers to halt a wastewater disposal practice that had been criticized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and environmental groups but that the DEP had allowed at the select facilities despite tighter water discharge standards passed in December.

The DEP requested, with Gov. Tom Corbett's approval, that drillers stop taking Marcellus Shale drilling wastewater to municipal "grandfathered" treatment facilities after May 19.

Those facilities are, the Clairton City Municipal Authority and McKeesport City Municipal Authority, both in Allegheny County; Johnstown Redevelopment Authority, Cambria County; Ridgway Borough, Elk County; Franklin Township Sewage Authority, Greene County; Tunnelton Liquids Co. and Hart Resource Technologies Inc., both in Indiana County; Brockway Area Sewage Authority, Punxsutawney Borough Municipal Authority and Reynoldsville Borough Authority, all in Jefferson County; New Castle City Sanitation Authority, Lawrence County; Sunbury Generation, Snyder County; Franklin Brine Treatment Corp., Venango County; Waste Treatment Corp., Warren County; and the Kiski Valley Water Pollution Control Authority, Westmoreland County.
