FracTracker & KTA Initiative
KTA and FracTracker.org are proud to launch Trail Logbook: Reporting Gas Industry Impacts on Pennsylvania Trail Experiences - an effort to collect information from hikers and other trail users who have had negative or hazardous encounters on or near a recreational trail.
With a simple-to-use form ("Trail Logbook"), data on a variety of trail impacts related to shale gas drilling activities will be uploaded to FracTracker.org,
a website providing a common portal to share data, photos, maps, and information related to the issues corollary to the shale gas industry. This grassroots endeavor is intended to aggregate what have to date been mostly anecdotal but often alarming reports from Pennsylvania's extraordinary network of trails. The information gathered will help clarify the nature of the impacts of the gas industry, and lead to the formation of effective and reasonable solutions. Click here to complete a Trail Logbook.
To submit photos, email them as attachments along with their descriptions to email@example.com. Please include as much information about the incident as possible, including whether you would like to be credited as the photographer or not. All photos will be loaded by the Logbook team into a publicly-available online photo album. By submitting your photos to us, you grant FracTracker and KTA the rights to reuse them – with proper attribution of course. If you are having trouble with this page, print out the logbook and mail it in.
