Map of Well pads, pipelines, chemical spills, compressor stations….et.al. in Northeastern PA

You can zoom in and click on the symbols
and get an idea what the various symbols are for.

Here is a legend:
  • https://i0.wp.com/maps.google.com/mapfiles/kml/pushpin/ylw-pushpin.png
    Yellow pushpins = permitted pads;
  • https://i1.wp.com/maps.google.com/mapfiles/kml/shapes/gas_stations.png
    Yellow gas stations = fracked or producing wells;
  • https://i2.wp.com/maps.google.com/mapfiles/kml/pushpin/red-pushpin.png
    Red pushpins  = compressor stations
  • https://i2.wp.com/www.totalsonic.net/meganmedia/image/BrownPushpinPNG.png
    Brown pushpins  = pipeline impact areas
    (only areas requiring permits – road or stream xing, wetlands, etc.)

    Brown circles = permitted hydrostatic testing discharge points;

    Blue drops = alternate waste management pits for fracked water
  • https://i0.wp.com/www.featurepics.com/FI/Thumb/20080301/Black-Push-Pin-638286.jpg
    Black pushpins = administrative violations, spill, contamination
  • https://i1.wp.com/maps.google.com/mapfiles/kml/shapes/water.png
    Wavy water = water withdrawal point

I will try to add this legend to the map itself.
