Photographs: Flooded Well Site in Northern PA
These pictures from a Northern PA well site in Susquehanna County show how flooding of well pads can and does occur. They were taken prior to the flooding of September 8-10, 2011. It is not yet clear if any spills or other dangerous incidents came about as a result of that flooding. We believe that PA Department of Environmental Protection will be investigating and evaluating gas well flooding problems.
