I own the land under my surface property and should never have to allow any activity that I do not want. Even if there is no drill pad on my property, it might be within 400 feet of my home. I bought my property because I wanted to be at least 500 feet from a country road and a drill pad will be spewing way more emissions than vehicle traffic, contribute much more noise 24/7 and may very well contaminate my water supply. So you, Tim Peck think that pooling protects over-drilling! What a ridiculous statement. Have you not seen the web of drill pads all over areas of PA and WV, TX and CO? We are ruining our forests, wildlife, watersheds, ecosystems and harming our own lives with the fracking process. My idea of a high quality of life does not include breathing contaminated air, drinking water that may be polluted or listening to the noise from trucks, emissions, fires, etc. The only people I have met who are in favor of this process are those who stand to gain or have been paid to vouch for it. So far, about 85-90% of those who have spoken in these hearings about fracking are opposed to fracking. Some of those opposed to fracking have been unable to voice their opinion due to time limitations. We should be the ones who determine whether it comes to our state!
