DEP To Study Radioactivity From Drilling

 The DEP annouced yesterday that it will start a study of Radioactivity from Marcellus drilling.

 Before we go into a panic over it take note of the following quote from their website article listed below:

  "DEP routinely reviews radioactivity data in wastes the oil and natural gas
industry and other industries generate, and the information the agency has
