Cary Institute Hydrofracking Forum

On Saturday, May 5th from 9AM to noon join the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, N.Y. for a special forum exploring hydrofracking. The event's goal is to provide citizens and decision makers with current information on the natural gas extraction technique, which involves injecting a high-pressure mix of chemically treated water and sand thousands of feet underground to release gas trapped in shale.

Hydrofracking has been the focus of environmental and economic discussions in New York State, with conversations centering on the future of the Marcellus Shale formation. There is currently a moratorium on hydrofracking in New York, while a task force appointed by the governor investigates the economic and environmental impacts of the drilling practice. Several of the speakers are from Pennsylvaniawhere hydrofracking in the Marcellus Shale is already underway; one sits on the peer-review panel for the EPA's hydrofracking study.

Topics to be covered include groundwater contamination, the treatment of hydrofracking wastewater, human health effects, industry innovations, and the social impact that rapid gas booms have on small communities.

Speakers will include:

  • William Schlesinger, Ph.D., President, Cary Institute, Introduction
  • Avner Vengosh, Ph.D., Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University, Methane and Water Contamination Associated with Shale Gas Development and Hydrofracking
  • Radisav Vidic, Ph.D., P.E., Chairman of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Pittsburgh, Wastewater Quality, Quantity, and Management: Lessons from the Marcellus Shale Region
  • Bernard Goldstein, M.D., Dean Emeritus, University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, Potential Public Health Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing
  • Mark Boling, J.D., Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Southwestern Energy, Hydraulic Fracturing OperationsSeparating Fact from Fiction
