The Marcellus Shale formation covers large swaths of New York and Pennsylvania, and the push for natural gas drilling has potentially disastrous consequences for the area’s water supply, including New York City’s major drinking water supply, among other possible damage to the environment.
The Delaware Riverkeeper Network and Riverkeeper, Inc. are conducting a webinar on April 29, 2009 at 10:30 am on the impacts of natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale. They will also discuss the gas drilling issue within the broader national debate on climate change and energy independence.
