Oil and Gas Drilling is Transforming the Allegheny National Forest
According to Alan Gregory's Conservation News, "The Allegheny is the most heavily drilled federal public land anywhere. It is a veritable pincushion of drill pads, storage tanks, roads, clearcuts, holding ponds and pollution." In 2007 the Allegheny Defense Project published this slideshow of aerial views of oil and gas drilling in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. At that time, the ANF had approximately 9,000 active oil and gas wells... more than all other national forests combined! The Forest Service predicts that if current rates of drilling continue, there could be 20,000 wells by 2020 and an additional 3,000 miles of roads. According to the ADP, "The oil and gas industry, the Forest Service, and the PA DEP all share the blame for what is happening in Pennsylvania's only national forest."
