Articles on Hydrofracking

The Department of Environment Conservation has extended comments on hydrofracking until January 11, 2012

On November 30, 2011, the DEC announced its decision to extend the comment period for another 30 days, until January 11, 2012. This comes in response to numerous requests by environmental groups and others to have more time to review the 1,500 page Draft SGEIS, first released in September 2011.
