Duke Center Well Plugging!

Over two decades ago Joe and Cheryl Thomas began asking regulators to stop the oil and fluids from flowing out of the wells along Knapp Creek, a tributary of the Allegheny River. Photos of the site before plugging here:!i=2454649975&k=sQSFwXC
There are an unknown number of abandoned wells on the Thomas' property, 35 have been located.
February 2014 this plugging project began! Map showing the locations of 19 of the wells here:
