WV Study Finds Pollutants at Drilling Sites

From Shale Reporter:
Benzene levels at the Maury pad were 85 parts per billion, compared to a normal range between one and 30 parts per billion. There was more diesel truck activity at the Maury and the trucks could have produced most of the benzene detected, said McCawley.
McCawley released the findings Friday during a public health conference at Ogelbay Park, The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register reported.
He said benzene levels at the other drilling sites in Wetzel, Marion and Brooke counties were more like the exposure one would experience living in a city.
