Hydro-fracking forum held in Binghamton

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The Community Science Institute, a non-profit group based out of Ithaca, detailed what they call the dangers of possible water contamination when it comes to hydro-fracking. The group held a public forum Wednesday night in Binghamton.

Speakers believe the DEC's environmental impact report isn't comprehensive enough.

"I think a little more time is warranted, the gas isn't going anywhere, it's been there millions of years, gas prices are at historic lows, supplies are at historic highs, so take a little time we only have one supply water," said Helen Slottje.

Once the public comment period is over, the DEC could elect to conduct further studies or begin issuing drilling permits.
