DEP attorney to watch over gas drilling in PA

Nels Taber, an attorney and a 17-year PADEP veteran, has been named to lead the DEP's northcentral regional office in Williamsport, Pa.

The move thrusts Taber into the high profile position of overseeing natural gas drilling operations in Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale region.

Taber, who has been serving as regional legal counsel since 1993, will direct an office covering a 14-county area.

He replaces Robert Yowell, who retired April 30 after nearly 16 years as regional director.
