District Approves of Water Sale for Utica Shale Drillers

The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District approved the sale of water from Seneca Lake and Clendening Reservoir for use in Utica shale oil and gas wells. Antero resources will have the right to draw up to 184 million gallons of water from Seneca Lake in Guernsey and Noble Counties. Gulfport Energy Corporation received rights to draw up to 25 million gallons from Clendening Reservoir in Harrison County. Both deals limit the amount of water that can be drawn in case lake levels become low.
