Meanwhile, DEP moves forward with tighter methane emission rules for the oil & gas industry, and Pittsburgh’s gas utility deploys cutting-edge technology to find and fix leaks in its distribution system.

As we saw at last week’s press conference with Environmental Defense Fund and other national and regional partners, the pieces are beginning to come together on climate action in Pennsylvania.
