Ron Gulla fights for his rights

Ron Gulla walks by some of the industrial equipment from gas production that remains on his property.

Ron Gulla, his wife, and 2 children no longer live on his 141-acre farm near Hickory in Washington County.

In 2005, Range Resources drilled the second Marcellus Shale well in Pennsylvania on his property. They also drilled in 2006 and 2007. His pond, groundwater, and soil were contaminated. “Everything I predicted would happen has happened,” said Gulla.

A self-described workaholic, Gulla has become an outspoken critic of the industry and is currently in litigation with Range. “I was happy as a pig in mud,” said Gulla. “And then this drilling started. Now I spend time every day having to deal with it.”

  4. Thank God for Ron Gullla! He speaks the truth when others like that thief Marian Swinehunt/NWPOA and Van Swindle of NY LIE like no other! All anybody has to do is use what sense they were supposed to be born with, is research Dr. Theo Colbourne use real research not industry hype!
