The West Virginia University Extension Service will host a program about private water supplies and natural gas regulations March 18 at the Mollohan Center on the Wetzel County 4-H camp grounds.

Representatives from WVU Extension Service and Penn State Extension will present on topics including hydro fracturing, regulations, voluntary landowner testing and leasing stipulations.

The two-hour program begins at 6 p.m. and is free to the public. However, space is limited so participants are encouraged to pre-register by calling Mindy Mall at 304-455-0934.
