Fracking in Pennsylvania Mapped
StateImpact Pennsylvania has released a series of mapped visualizations of Natural Gas Drilling in Pennsylvania.
The maps show which operators are drilling in Pennsylvania and where. They also show which wells have been cited for violating state environmental regulations. So far there have been 3,331 violations resulting in fines of $4.9 million. The drills are displayed on the map with color-coded markers to show the wells with no violations and those with one or more violations.
You can select individual wells on the map to view details about the operator and any violations.
