From the Letter:

Dear Mr. Neville:

Thank you again for your email of September 18 clarifying the regulations that apply to conventional oil and gas well operators in Pennsylvania. Earthworks greatly appreciates the prompt and thorough follow-up from you, Scott Motter, and Marshall Wurst regarding the two complaints that Earthworks filed on conventional wells in the Allegheny National Forest (ANF) and the actions taken by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to address the pollution we identified.
