Oil and gas company wants to draw water from Ohio River

PennEnergy Resources LLC wants to cut down on the number of trucks transporting water for its hydraulic fracturing operations in western Pennsylvania by drawing water from the Ohio River, reports the Beaver County Times. The newspaper says the company has received approval from Freedom, Pennsylvania officials to build one or more water pipelines through the borough. The lines would allow PennEnergy to move water from the Ohio River to its drilling sites in Beaver County.
