Panel Discussion: Gas Drilling in NY Watershed

Saturday April 3rd,
1-4pm


Pratt U.,
Higgins Hall Auditorium

61 St. James Pl.
Brooklyn, NY 11205

Free and Open to the Public

NYC, including Bloomberg and the Department of Environmental Protection have taken a stand against natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale region part of which is located in NYC’s Watershed, urging Albany to do the same. Many people think that if it dangerous for some part of the state, it should be banned throughout.

A panel of professionals, activists, concerned citizens and community groups, including members from Shaleshock, Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy and the Office of Environmental Coordination will discuss the facts and risks inherent to natural gas drilling and explain how it would effect NYC city citizens- in terms of health, safety, water quality and resulting future economic obligations. This event will work in conjunction with the NYPIRG event on April 1st.
