Energy companies have drilled thousands of natural gas wells in shale formations across Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. But in many ways, that’s proving to be just the opening act of the fracking boom. How that natural gas will be moved from the region’s gas fields to places across the country is sparking a new round of debate over the environmental consequences of natural gas extraction. In our continuing series, we go beyond the drilling pads to explore these pipelines and examine the health and environmental impacts that are being felt along the way.
This series is funded, in part, by the Park Foundation.
