The NY State DEC’s proposed guidelines on hydraulic fracturing are flawed and does not adequately protect New York City water from contamination and air pollution. Furthermore, it has no protections for many people living in upstate New York. This is an important opportunity to make your voice heard. It is urgent we attend this hearing in large numbers to let our legislature know that the people of New York State want a ban on fracking. We are working in coalition with several grassroots organizations to mobilize people to testify at the hearing. Please come and join us.
