EPA fracking forum postponed; Sept. date now likely
|A scheduled Thursday hydro-fracking forum that was abruptly moved to Syracuse from Binghamton on Monday has been postponed.|
The Environmental Protection Agency will delay the forum from its original Aug. 12 date, said Sandy Baker, vice president of sales and marketing at the Oncenter.
Oncenter representatives said the Thursday date was too close to accommodate the expected crowd for the fracking forum.
"We have a beautiful convention center here that can easily accommodate 1,000 or 1,200 people, but in the last day we continued to get calls about additional people, and that number is easily growing to more than 5,000,” Baker said. “In order to accommodate all of the safety issues, we need more time to plan this.”
