Teen Shale Network studies effects of fracking on water quality at Black Moshannon State Park

May 5, 2014

By collecting water samples and using the equipment the professionals would at Black Moshannon State Park, State College Area High School students have been learning how the environment affects water quality.

Through the Teen Shale Network, the Earth Science students have become involved in research on Marcellus Shale. They are working with the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at Penn State to gather baseline data on the water quality at Black Moshannon should nearby fracking have any effect.

They've had four trips to the park and will present the data at the Shale Network conference May 12.
