Red dots: items in this permit list with an exact location.
Blue stars: Marcellus Gas Well Water Sources.
Municipality shading: number of "facilities", with each well counting separately
(includes the red dots):
gray: 0
pale turquoise: 1
turquoise: 2
pale blue: 3
middle blue: 4
dark blue: 5
dark purple: 6
purple: 19
(Color coding may differ from one issue to the next.)
(Note if a project spans multiple municipalities -- e.g. a pipeline -- it will show in the count for each municipality.)

The number of facilities also follows the municipality name in brackets.

Municipality counts are based on the way the permit is listed by DEP; DEP has been known to get a municipality wrong.

Locations in brackets identify a precise location used to locate a surrogate for the actual site being permitted (e.g. locating a well pad or pipeline by the known location of a well.) Locations labeled beginning with "~" and ending in "[?]" are approximate and speculative based on inferences using on-line property and lease records. These are marked in the text as "[Approximate, Speculative]

Cross-hatching: Environmental Justice Areas
Yellow triangles: Compressor Stations
Orange triangles: Storage Field Wells (currently Dominion North Summit Storage Field)
Crosses: Unconventional well permits (may not have been drilled)
Green: "Natural areas", e.g. state game lands, state forests

INSPECTION_COMMENT: The Act 9 sign was in place and all required documents had been placed at the site. The E&S controls were installed and appeared to be in good condition. The well pad was being constructed and is expected to be completed by mid October. A redline approval was granted to permit the construction of the detention basin during Phase 1 in order to reduce earth disturbance. Chevron indicated that the area around the access road is to be seeded and mulched the following week. Once the well pad is finished drilling activities may commence. There were no violations observed at the time of inspection.

Notes:

The "water pipelines" shown in the Luzerne Detail map above are not listed for authorizations in this bulletin, but should be considered together with the Dogbone Centralized Water Facility as a single integrated project. The Dog Bone Waterline is shown in the construction plans included in File Review Documents for the Dogbone Centralized Water Facility as being "overlaid" by it but without explicit connections; however a connection diagram for the tank equipment shows a clear intent to connect the tank farm to pipelines, and for pipelines to carry "water" in both directions.

The 7/24/2017 Deficiency Letter directs Chevron to submit a Transportation Plan. Connected water pipelines would in fact transport the residual waste covered in the permit, so should (but might not) be included in the transportation plan.

File Review documents for the 4-H (Young) pipeline clearly show that it is connected to the intake at the Monongahela River covered in Chevron's Water Management Plan "Monongahela River Source 47". The documents taken together clearly establish that Chevron plans a connected hydrological pathway from the Monongahela River to the 6 million gallon tank farm at the Dogbone Centralized Water Facility.

The outline of the tank farm and all of the associated pipelines and water facilities are shown on an integrated topographic map above (along with parcel outlines).

Chevron has been notified that the Dogbone Centralized Water Facility will require a Special Exception as a Public / Private Works from the Fayette County Zoning Hearing Board. This will clearly be one of the most important cases in the history Fayette County's experience with Marcellus Shale. Stay tuned.

For a letter from Fayette Marcellus Watcher Jim Rosenberg to the DEP regarding the many problems of the application for the DOGBONE CENTRALIZED WATER FACILITY see:
<http://faymarwatch.org/documents/Dogbone_Water_System_DEP_full.pdf>
(This letter is a quite large document, but most of the length is taken by Act 14 notifications which DEP should already have but were provided for convenience.)

Act 14 is a state law requiring applicants for several types of permits to notify every county and municipality in which the project will take place, and providing local government with a 30-day comment period. These permits typically do not allow any other type of public comment.

---
The Modification Permit for Siegel 1 has a section Special Permit Conditions that includes this:

"WELL MAY PENETRATE VOID AREA (Pittsburgh coal seam). Use caution when drilling near potential void areas. If void areas are encountered, case and cement the well according to 78a.83, to prevent the migration of gas or other fluids into coal seam and notify your Oil & Gas Inspector."

------------------------
DEP defines an environmental justice area as "any census tract where 20 percent or more individuals live in poverty, and/or 30 percent or more of the population is minority". (See:
<http://www.dep.pa.gov/PublicParticipation/OfficeofEnvironmentalJustice/Pages/default.aspx>). There are supposed to be enhanced public participation requirements for permits in environmental justice areas, but news of this actually ever happening is scarce. In Fayette County, the entirety of Springhill, Nicholson, German, and Georges Townships are environmental justice areas, as well as a large part of Dunbar Township. DEP's policy document on public participation guidelines for environmental justice areas is located here:
<http://www.elibrary.dep.state.pa.us/dsweb/Get/Version-48671/012-0501-002.pdf>

eNOTICE records are likely to list the same permit multiple times, as that permit moves through the DEP process.

Oil & Gas Wells designated with a site a number and the letter H typically designate horizontal wells.

Marcellus Shale waste disposal injection wells in Pennsylvania are regulated directly by EPA, not DEP. Notice of any new permit applications will appear at the above web address.  I'm not aware of any subscription service to be notified of such applications. I'm not aware of any Marcellus Shale waste disposal injection wells in Fayette County (yet ...) but we need to monitor this page for future applications.

Disclaimers:

This compilation from the above sources was done by hand using copy and paste and may omit relevant permits.

Parcel data is provided via the tax records search web page offered by the Fayette County Assessment Office (http://property.co.fayette.pa.us/). Presumed Parcel Id links are subject to availability provided by that agency and associated web sites. Presumed Parcel Ids are determined as the mapped parcel containing a given latitude and longitude, are a best effort determination which is subject to error, and are not official. In cases where a facility is leased and there is a separate parcel id for the lease, if this parcel id is not separately mapped, the parcel id shown will be the id for the enclosing parcel. Parcel owners may be surface owners only and may or may not have any relationship to oil & gas facilities.

Does not currently include water supply permits. Does not include landfill permits even though many such are for Marcellus Shale waste. (It is not possible at this time to distinguish which landfill permits are for Marcellus Shale waste and which are not without doing File Review for each permit.)

Erosion & Sedimentation permit records do not currently include latitude and longitude. Where I am publishing latitude and longitude with E&S permits it is by inferring an associated well permit and using published latitude and longitude for the well. It is possible I may be inferring the wrong well site.

Municipalities are shown from eFACTS records on the DEP web site. The DEP has been known to list a municipality incorrectly.
