Posted September 29, 2014 at 9:47am

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that “environmental regulators have begun to decide what to change and what to leave in a substantial revision to the state’s oil and gas regulations they hope will take effect by the middle of 2016.”  

“The hard choices are still to come.”  

“Officials with the state Department of Environmental Protection presented their first thoughts Thursday about how they will adapt their draft rules for above-ground activities at oil and gas sites to address thousands of suggestions submitted by citizens, industry representatives and environmental groups during a public comment period this year.”
