DEC Holds Drilling Hearing at Sullivan County

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) held one of only four state-wide Hearings on drilling and hydraulic fracturing at Sullivan County Community College on October 28, 2009.

The vast majority of the standing-room-only crowd was opposed to drilling in New York State.

Few or none of the opponents drew a distinction between drilling in a watershed or anywhere else.

Most or all asked for additional time so the public can read and comment knowledgeably on the DEC’s 800+ page “Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement on Gas and Oil Drilling in New York State.” (DSGEIS)

They asked that several more public hearings be scheduled throughout the state because some had driven three or more hours to attend last night. (Note: When I left at 11:00 PM, the meeting was still going on.)
