Hydro-fracking in NY State

In a world where access to fresh water is increasingly becoming fraught with finger lakeconflict, it is vitally important to the future of our region that we be vigilant stewards of some of the globe’s largest fresh water reserves.

Hydro-fracking could have grave impacts on the potability of our region’s water supply, and thereby, represents a threat to our region’s economic well-being.  Monroe County relies on watersheds in the Finger Lakes, so this is an issue that impacts our entire community.  Moreover, as a licensed real estate agent, I understand the lending and title implications that arise from gas leases. 

Before the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) grants permits to the oil leaking fracking waterand natural gas industry to begin the initial stages of the hydro-fracking process, the public should have the benefit of reviewing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) comprehensive study into the hazards linked to hydro-fracking.  That is why I wholeheartedly support the moratorium on hydro-fracking as proposed in the Englebright-Addabo bill. 

With the future of our community at stake, we’re simply asking for more time to study the effects of hydro-fracking on our drinking water, on public health, and on the environment.
