It could certainly be done with the right permission from folks, or a strong enough zoom lens to take pictures from a road.
I’d say a roadmap would look something like taking the footage with the right infrared camera’s of all wells in town. Checking the new wells of the same type in Erie that they are doing to see what those look like. Then taking that footage and putting it on youtube and working with some film makers at CU who would like to help. Then showing that to the news outlets here and in other places where fracking and drilling are an issue to get some traction.
Need to rent a camera, licensed drone operator, and go forward with it.
