The gas well site is proposed to be plugged and abandoned, starting on May 30, 2016.  The gas well site is located at 7404 and 7504 Pleasant Run Road, and it is operated by Atlas Barnett, LLC.  The plugging and abandonment process is anticipated to last approximately 35 days, weather permitting.  Atlas is required to restore the site “to its original condition as nearly as practicable.”  Features such as the well equipment, screening wall, and electric gate will be removed.  Vehicles, crews, and construction equipment may be seen on-site during this time, performing activities such as moving soil, filling holes and depressions, and removing surface installations.
