PGE Converts a Water Impoundment Into a Vernal Pool

On State Game Lands 59, PGE reclaimed a water impoundment that was utilized for drilling and completion operations. The construction and use of this impoundment greatly reduced truck traffic on SGL 59 and nearby state and township roads. When PGE completed its operations in this area and the impoundment was no longer needed, we worked collaboratively with the Pennsylvania Game Commission staff to covert the former impoundment into a vernal pool. The vernal pool adds increased habitat diversity and aesthetic value to SGL 59 and demonstrates PGE’s commitment to the development of Pennsylvania’s natural resources in an environmentally responsible manner.
