EXCLUSIVE: Range Resources releases study of Fort Cherry air during, after drilling

A nearly two-year study of the air quality surrounding a Range Resources well near a Washington County school campus finds levels of fine particulate matter or volatile organic compounds were below health safety limits from just before drilling through hydraulic fracturing and into production of the controversial well pad. Range Resources (NYSE: RRC) funded three site monitors and the study, which lasted between December 2016 and October 2018, near the Yonker well site in Mt. Pleasant, less than a mile from the Fort Cherry Junior/Senior High School. Range had independent, third-party environmental firm Gradient prepare the study.
