Keuka Lake Assoc. seeks hydrofracking ban
|Based on the report of over 1400 contamination complaints from approximately 1000 horizontal hydrofracking wells for natural gas in Pennsylvania, the Keuka Lake Association (KLA) has requested the New York Governor’s Office and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to ban all horizontal hydrofracking for natural gas in the Keuka and Finger Lakes watersheds.|
A statement released by the KLA recently spells out the conditions that need to be met before the process could be considered for the Finger Lakes watersheds:
1. The causes of these complaints are scientifically understood and remedies are both developed and required.
2. The requirement for all flowback waste from hydrofracking is rendered safe for surface discharge by a licensed and certified waste treatment facility.
