Board of County Commissioners votes for stricter drilling regulations

Adams County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted for stricter oil and gas drilling regulations in unincorporated Adams County Sept. 3.

The decision came after a six-month moratorium that halted developers from applying for new drilling permits. The new regulations include a minimum setback distance of 1,000 feet, stricter zoning for drilling sites and air quality control standards.

“In Adams County, we take pride in being able to find common sense solutions,” said Commissioner Steve O’Dorisio.
