Marcellus News for Pennsylvania Daily Update: June 1

I'm going to try daily updates and use a new format. So without further ado -

Police Prepare for Marcellus Drilling
It hasn't come to Moon yet, but Police Chief Leo McCarthy said his department would be ready.
McCarthy and other law enforcement officials last week received a crash course on the impact of Marcellus Shale drilling on Pennsylvania communities...
More than 200 state and Federal law enforcement officials were briefed on the potential environmental effects of drilling, as well as how it could lead to spikes in community crime rates.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The federal government should conduct a full environmental review that weighs potential damage to the welfare of people in the Delaware River watershed and the drinking water quality for millions of New Yorkers before allowing natural gas drilling in the region, the state's attorney general said in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday.
Antero will spend more on drilling
Oil and natural gas company Antero Resources on Tuesday said it will spend $126 million more on capital expenses this year than originally forecast as it increases its drilling activity.
