By  | 

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A program about gas drilling is coming to Doddridge County later this month.

During the program people can learn more about private water supplies and regulations aimed at protecting them from gas drilling.

The program is being held Nov. 19 at the Doddridge County Park building.

It is hosted by WVU Extension.

Representatives from the extension services at West Virginia and Penn State universities will discuss hydraulic fracturing, voluntary landowner testing, leasing stipulations and more.

An official with the state Department of Environmental Protection will talk about groundwater protection and the program that controls underground injection of fluids.

The first session is Nov. 18 at the Winfield community building in Marion County.
