State officially bans high-volume hydrofracking

Jun 30, 2015 12:02 am
The state Department of Environmental Conservation Mon., Jun. 29, officially prohibited high-volume hydraulic fracturing in New York by issuing its formal Findings Statement. This brings the state's seven-year review of the process to completion. “After years of exhaustive research and examination of the science and facts, prohibiting high-volume hydraulic fracturing is the only reasonable alternative,” said DEC Commissioner Joe Martens. The DEC concluded there is no workable alternative that would diminish the harmful impact on the environment, and address the risks to the public health from this process. The Findings Statement is the culmination of a comprehensive review of the hydrofracking process. The statement details impacts to water and air resources, ecosystems and wildlife, community character and public health. The full statement can be accessed online at www [dot] DEC [dot] NY [dot] gov.
