A natural gas drilling company wants to build four compressor stations in Susquehanna County.

A public meeting was held Thursday night to discuss the plan.

People gathered at Elk Lake High School in Springville to hear The presentation by Willams Partners, the company that wants to put up the stations.

The main topic of discussion at the meeting was air quality.

Williams Partners said they want to partner with the community on the issue.
“We know it’s important to be good neighbors. We want to be part of the community. Our employees live and work in the area,” said Helen Humpries.

The proposed stations would go up in Liberty Township, Middletown Township and Forest Lake Township in Susquehanna County.
