Groups and Local Elected Officials to Hold Press Conference
Tuesday March 20, 5:50 PM
Dennis Wicker Center Lecture Hall (details), 1801 Nash St. Sanford, NC (map)
After reviewing the over 400 page report issued by DENR last Friday the conclusion that hydraulic fracturing “can be done safely provided the right protections are in place,” eight grassroots groups say this conclusion is not supported by the report itself.  Speakers at the press conference will cover many shortcomings of the report, information in the report that contradicts the conclusion given, the extreme complexity of the issues raised by this method of gas extraction, and the severe lack of readiness of state officials and agencies to manage it.
The full study is over 30 MB, so be patient in downloading!  Talking points are available here.
