Tuesday Night: Impact of Fracking on Westchester
03 Oct, 2011
On Tuesday night, from 7:00-9:00 pm, the League of Women Voters of Larchmont/Mamaroneck presents a program called, “Why Natural Gas Drilling in Upstate NY Impacts Westchester County Residents” at the Mamaroneck Public Library.
Hydraulic fracturing (also known as “hydrofracking” or just “fracking”) is the injection of water and chemicals under high pressure into rock formations to extract natural gas.
Local LWV President Elisabeth Radow will discuss taxpayer risks at footing the bill for damage cause by gas companies, and former NYC DEP Commissioner Al Appleton will discuss why our drinking water is at risk due to fracking.
Admission is free.
