Riverkeeper Update on Hydro-Fracking - Take Action!

Riverkeeper’s attorneys are preparing detailed responses to regulators’ flawed draft environmental review and rules on fracking, and the public has only until Dec. 12 to join us by submitting their own comments on the state's fracking proposal.  Not only does the proposal fail to protect water, but the state fails to seriously consider any socio-economic risks of fracking, from the costs of increased road construction to potential impacts on tourism and farming.
  • Join Us! Attend our presentation, “Understanding the Facts on Fracking,” Nov. 16 at the Town of Esopus Library.
  • Make a Difference! Attend New York State Department of Environmental Conservation public hearings on its draft environmental review and regulations; and/or the Delaware River Basin Commission’s public hearing on its draft regulations throughout November.
  • Do Your Part! Comment on the DEC’s draft environmental review and regulations.
