Following January's meeting of the Jay Township Board of Supervisors in which a representative from Elexco Land Services presented information on EQT's intent to conduct seismic testing on all of the township's more than 50 miles of road residents at Thursday's meeting asked what they could expect as a result of the increased activity.
Attendees asked with all the activity within the township if EQT would be covering the cost of water testing for individuals with the increase in drilling expected.
"They're only required to notify you if you're within a certain footage of the well site and if your outside of that you kind of on your own to get it done. I don't think they pay for any of it," Supervisor Jeremy Rippey said.
