Natural gas drilling companies are starting to request gas drilling permits for new natural gas drilling rigs. Recently, permits were requested for multiple drilling rigs in Robinson Township,Washington County. Robinson is one of the communities with strict zoning regulations on natural gas drilling. The Supervisors are moving cautiously on the applications. At least one of the requested drill sites abuts a golf course. Notwithstanding the delay, the requested permits are a sure sign that natural gas drilling in Pennsylvania is still big business. The debate merely reflects the continuing concerns by local authorities over environmental concerns for people living in the community.
