The State Department of Conservation and Natural Resources which oversees the state parks and state forests, says water quality is the resource that most people cite when expressing their concerns about shale gas production. Although incidents have occurred, the data shows that water quality hasn't been adversely affected due to shale gas drilling. Approximately 1,500 acres of state forest land has been converted to facilitate gas development.
