Protecting the Allegheny

ACTION ALERT!

Industry operator targets Clara Township, Potter County, PA as a destination for O&G waste.

The residents of Potter County have been blindsided by news that an oil and gas well operator targeted a depleted oil well in Clara Township as a destination to dispose of O&G wastewater.  Roulette Oil & Gas LLC has applied to the US EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) for authorization to convert one of the company’s depleted oil wells into a Class IID Injection well. 

The EPA is currently soliciting comments on a Class II-D draft Underground Injection Well Permit located in Clara Twp., Potter County,Pennsylvania.

Comments must be received by March 4, 2021.
