Range Resources Launches Ambient Air Monitoring Program at Washington County Well Site
Over the years, Range Resources has, and continues to, incorporate leading sustainability practices and engineering solutions into every aspect of our business. We take great pride in the progress we continue to make towards our sustainability goals, pioneering innovations that have helped shape new standards for shale development and becoming the first company to voluntarily disclose our fracturing fluid, and to achieve 100 percent reuse levels through our water recycling program, among many other industry-leading best practices that we continuously enhance.
This commitment has pushed us to be a leader in emissions and public health transparency. We understand the value of providing the public with data to help better understand modern shale gas development, and recently released a public health and long-term ambient air monitoring report providing analysis from nearly two years of continuous data from an unconventional Marcellus Shale well site near Fort Cherry’s school campus.
Through our regular community outreach, we heard from nearby residents at the Augustine well site in Cecil Township, Pennsylvania and voluntarily launched the ambient air monitoring program at this well site. All measurements are being collected using equipment and procedures in accordance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency methods. Third-party consultants have placed six monitors around the well site, and they are collecting the data which is being sent to their certified lab for analysis. The data then undergoes a quality check process.
This web page will serve as a host to the interactive data, which will be updated on a regular basis, so please continue to check back here for new data and information.
