A Carroll Township resident requested recognition of a newly-formed citizens group at the March 6 supervisors meeting.

Jim Delaney, of Balboa Drive, formed the Carroll Township Concerned Citizens organization in anticipation of an upcoming drilling project that will be affecting the residents in the Van Voorhis and Balboa Drive area of the township.

The group will request a meeting with EQT through the township in order to have a dialogue about permit requirements in order to prevent issues residents experienced during the previous gas well drilling in the area.

According to Mr. Delaney, issues of concern to the group include lighting, idling, noise levels, adherence to permit requirements, and other issues affecting the residents in the area of the drilling.

The group will also request information about the anticipated length of the project, which will include drilling to depths of 18,000 feet, much deeper than depths drilled in the previous project, according to Mr. Delaney. These increased depths may increase the potential noise levels, and the group wants EQT to make necessary accommodations.

We want to “preserve the safety and lifestyle of residents,” according to Mr. Delaney.
