Ron Gulla fights for his rights
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.”
