If You Signed Gas-Drilling Lease, It May Be Too Late
|To my neighbors who have signed gas leases:|
Victoria Switzer signed a gas lease on her property in Dimock, Pa. Her family now drinks water from bottles because her own water well is contaminated with methane.
A drilling company spokesman told a reporter, “At this point, no specific connection has been made between the tentatively identified compounds and oil and gas activities.”
Mrs. Switzer fears that if she tries to sell her home, which sits in the middle of a drilling zone, no one will buy it.
“Can you imagine the ad? ‘Beautiful new home. Bring your own water’,” Ms. Switzer said. “We’re like a dead zone here.”
She probably should have hired a lawyer before she signed her lease.
