Carrollton Council Approves Seismic Testing in Village

From the Free Press Standard:

Carrollton residents may feel  “good vibrations” under their feet this fall. 
Council approved a request from Cougar Land Service to do 3-D Seismic testing within the village at their Monday meeting.  Doug Garrett, a company representative, presented information at the previous council meeting and was given the go ahead for testing Monday.  
“The information gathered from this testing will benefit each village landowner,” he noted. 
According to Garrett, the testing will involve three “vibe” trucks in a row collecting data useful for horizontal drilling.  Garrett told council the testing they do is more intensive than previous seismic testing completed a few years ago.  He expects testing to be done in October or November inside the village.  Any properties used in the testing will be paid a $3 per acre usage fee or a minimum of $25.    He said each vibe will last close to 60 seconds but will be more noise than earth shaking.  The company is approaching Hanoverton and said they have not received any notification of any property damage.  They did agree to raise the bond from $3,000 to $10,000.
