Fracking forum scheduled at Binghamton University

CHENANGO COUNTY – Whether you’re for or against the process of hydrofracking (fracking) as a means to source natural gas from deep within the shale deposits of the earth, an interest into the subject remains for many Chenango County residents.



One of several informational forums – closest to Chenango County – is scheduled for 7 p.m. January 31 in Vestal at the Binghamton University bioengineering building.

Presenters will highlight the likelihood of there being any benefit to fracking in upstate New York based on the results of studying the viability and results of the more than 700 natural gas wells implemented in portions of Pennsylvania.

The presentation is sponsors by a number of groups and organizations located through Broome and Tioga counties; including NYRAD (New York Residents Against Drilling) which has been active in advocating against the practice of fracking in and around Chenango County since the boom of the natural gas prospect among the alleged Marcellus shale tracts deep below the surface of the earth.
