PULASKI, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania couple is suing their township, claiming that supervisors improperly approved natural gas drilling in a residential area.

The lawsuit against Pulaski Township was filed by Timothy Chito and Elizabeth Kesner. The lawsuit says the couple purchased a home in the area in 1996, but that recent drilling about 1500 feet away is affecting their property and quality of life. The area is about 60 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

The lawsuit seeks damages and to have the township amend its local zoning laws so that drilling is only allowed in industrial areas.

The township did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
