- "Penn Township commissioners voted Monday to relax proposed setback requirements for Marcellus Shale gas drilling, reversing an earlier decision to increase them by hundreds of feet.
Reverting to their initial proposal, commissioners plan to ban hydraulic fracturing operations within a 600-foot buffer zone around homes, schools and businesses on properties encompassing less than a certain acreage. At a work session last week, they agreed to expand that zone to 1,000 feet, citing a desire to increase protections for landowners near proposed drilling sites."
