WHEELING, W.Va.—
 
 
The impact on air quality and public health from the drilling of of Marcellus Shale is being looked at in Ohio County.
 
The Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department has launched an on-line Natural Gas Health Effects Survey. 
 
The survey is part of the department’s ongoing research of gas drilling in the Ohio Valley.
 
The on-line health effects survey was developed by the health department to allow individuals to report non-identifiable data on specific health concerns and problems they may have due to drilling activity in their area.
 
The health department hopes that this survey, along with other research data, will be helpful in developing long term public health guidelines in regards to natural gas drilling in the state. 
 
The survey can be found on the health department’s website at www.ohiocountyhealth.com.
 
For more information about the survey contact the health department at 304-234-3682.
