Penn State Extension to Host Marcellus Shale Program Oct. 2

The free “Understanding Shale Gas Exploration & Development” session, open to the public, will be held in Point Breeze.

Penn State Extension will host “Understanding Shale Gas Exploration & Development” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the Allegheny County Extension Office, 400 North Lexington St., third floor, in Point Breeze.

The goal of the program is to provide attendees with a greater understanding of the impacts of shale gas exploration on leasing, water quality and the community, as well as needs that homeowners and community members should address if they hold property in shale gas areas.

Scheduled speakers include Penn State Extension educators Jon Laughner and Dana Rizzo, as well as Agricultural Law Resource & Reference Center Director Ross Pifer. The discussion will include the current and future outlook for shale development, related water issues, and legal impacts on shale development. A question-and-answer period will follow the discussion.

This program is for educational purposes only and is not intended to be legal advice. Those with legal questions or issues should consult an attorney.

“Understanding Shale Gas Exploration & Development” is free and open to the public. Due to limited space, pre-registration is required by calling 412-473-2540.

Penn State encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing special accommodations or have questions about the physical access provided, contact Laughner at 412-473-2540 in advance of your visit.
