State To Release Full Hydrofracking Study Today

from EcoPolitics Daily:
Submitted by Colleen Elrod
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is scheduled to release its full review of hydraulic fracturing on Friday, July 8. 

The study will be posted to this DEC Web page at some point that day.
Environmental groups including NYLCV are anxiously awaiting the full documentation for the state's proposal to allow limited hydrofracking in New York. Last week, DEC announced the outline of the study's proposals and agreed to ban hydrofracking in the watersheds of New York City and Syracuse, which are unfiltered drinking-water systems.
Some environmental groups are also questioning the wisdom of banning hydrofracking in some parts of the state, but allowing it in other areas.
DEC will start accepting public comments on its review in August.
