Westmoreland County residents want officials to use some of the money the county will receive from Marcellus shale impact fees to prepare for possible environmental damage caused by the drilling practice.

"I think you should spend most of it, or the first part of it, on having water buffaloes provided for Westmoreland County," said Andy Pollack, 70, of Washington Township. "In Washington County and in Butler County their wells have been destroyed (by drilling). I know it’s going to happen to us."
