2020 Shale Network Workshop Set For May 14-15 In State College To Feature Health Effects Presentations

The Shale Network will hold its 2020 Annual Workshop on May 14-15 at the Graduate Hotel in State College with the theme--  “Shale Gas: Future and Developing Issues.” 
The Workshop agenda will include presentations on the health effects related to shale gas development by Donna Vorhees, director of energy research at the Health Effects Institute, and Joan Casey, assistant professor of environmental health sciences at Columbia University.
The workshop provides an opportunity for citizen scientists, researchers, government officials, energy company representatives, and environmental professionals to compare lessons learned about water and environmental issues within areas where shale energy development is occurring. 
Registration for the workshop will open later in January 2020.
Shale Network is a collaborative effort between Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences Inc. to collect and analyze data on water quality in the Marcellus Shale drilling region. 
Started in November 2011, the project was initiated by scientists from Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh, Dickinson College, and throughout Pennsylvania. The goal is to find, organize, and upload data for water resources for online publication.
The Department of Environmental Protection participates in organizing parts of the workshop. The National Science Foundation and Oak Ridge Associated Universities have provided funding to support the Network..
