Fracking public hearing in Dansville Wednesday

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation holds a public hearing on the draft regulations for the highvolume hydraulic fracturing of natural gas drilling Wednesday in Dansville.

It is one of four public hearings on the revised draft environmental impact statement, draft regulations and proposed State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) General Permit (GP) for Stormwater Discharges associated with high-volume hydraulic fracturing, which involves injecting water and chemicals into rock to release gas.

The Dansville hearing includes afternoon and evening sessions, from 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. at Dansville Middle School auditorium, 31 Clara Barton St., Dansville

Comments will be accepted in written and oral format at the hearings. Once the comment period ends, Dec. 12, the DEC will review the comments and prepare responses to be released with the final environmental impact statement and final regulations. No permits for high-volume hydraulic fracturing will be issued until the impact statement is finalized and the DEC issues the required Findings Statement. Comments can be submitted online. They may be mailed to: Attn:dSGEIS Comments, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-6510.
