SRBC Study Finds No Impacts on Streams from Marcellus Shale Drilling

Posted 5 October: From 2010 to 2013 the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) monitored 58 sampling stations in small headwater streams in the Susquehanna River Basin to investigate potential impacts from gas exploration in the Marcellus Shale.  The study recorded pH, temperature, conductivity, inorganic chemistry, TOC, gross alpha and beta radiation, and macroinvertebrates.  The SRBC report, released earlier this year, concluded no discernable relationship between water quality and well pad density.  Please click HERE to download an electronic copy of the report.

US EPA to Retire CERCLIS and Launch New Information System

Posted 5 October:  EPA has retired CERCLIS, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Information System and replaced it with the new Superfund Enterprise Management System (SEMS). For over three decades, CERCLIS has served as the application that stores information about releases, clean-ups and enforcement activities under the Superfund Act of 1980, also known as CERCLA. To find out more about SEMS and how it might impact your work, visit THIS LINK.
