Protect NYC's Watershed
Please join us on Saturday, March 21 at 11am at the Park Slope Food Coop for a lecture/discussion about NYC’s upstate watershed and current dangers posed by companies vying for gas drilling rights.
• Carolyn Zolas, Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter’s Watershed Coordinator
• Assemblyman James Brennan, who is co-sponsoring legislation to halt this drilling.
The hydraulic fracturing drilling process releases toxic and carcinogenic chemicals, and could endanger NYC's water supply. There will be Q & A with the speakers after the lecture.
Park Slope Food Coop is at 782 Union St., Brooklyn, NY 11215 bet. 6th & 7th Aves.
To learn more, read Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's recent report on this issue.
