The NY DEC Plans to Frack NY Forests
At the end of August, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) released a Draft State Forest Management Plan that would open up over a thousand square miles of state forest to high volume-hydraulic fracturing. The plan would permit up to one wellpad every 80 acres and could result in thousands upon thousands of new wells, pipelines, and access roads. The public has until the end of October to comment on this proposal. Please take a moment today to let Governor Paterson, the DEC, and your legislators know that you oppose leasing state forests for fracking. <http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5952/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=4227>
