Canandaigua Says No to Hydrofracking Wastewater
|The city of Canandaigua will not be accepting wastewater from hydrofracking operations.|
The city council met Thursday to vote on the resolution and reinforce its previous stance on the issue. Hydrofracking, a process to extract natural gas out of rock, has been a hot topic among cities and towns that border the Finger Lakes.
Canandaigua mayor Ellen Polimeni, says the city is always careful about its watershed.
"We really don't know enough about what is in the water, and we have a concern for our equipment, and the whole issue in regard to hydrofracking," said Polimeni.
The mayor says Canandaigua has a wastewater system that is being upgraded, so she says she's not sure what impact hydrofracking could have on it.
