HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A panel studying the impact of natural gas drilling in western Maryland is holding a meeting to update residents on its work.

The Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission meets Monday night in McHenry.

The Maryland Department of the Environment says the nighttime meeting at the Garrett College auditorium is intended to give residents an overview of the panel’s progress.

The group has until Dec. 31 to produce a draft report on the best practices for extracting gas by hydraulic fracturing. The final report on best practices is due Aug. 1, 2013.

The group’s final report on the impact of gas drilling is due one year later.
