Scratch the following description. Chif Gas & Oil pulled a fast one and changed the location that they won't announce until the day of the tour. Reporters aren't allowed to take pictures. Chief Gas & Oil is being a lousy neighbor.

The Dallas zoning board will be touring this facility shortly to decide if they will give permission to Chief Oil & Gas to build something like this near the Dallas, PA schools. I went on my own tour and recorded interviews with the residents that live nearby. The residents said it was a quiet day for the compressor, but you can hear the sound loudly even on a quiet day. The wind direction has a lot to do with the decibel level too. The wind was blowing away from my direction as you can see by the mist emitting from the exhaust pipe. I feel that when the zoning board goes, they need to be by the houses are while the plant opens up, or releases pressure. They need the hear the full capacity of the unit to get an accurate understanding of the noise. The neighbors said the plant really make a very loud noise several times a week.

On the day I was there, there were about 6 people on the grounds working. It appeared that they were cleaning up the yard.
