Fracking Study Out, Start Your Commenting
September 7th, 2011

The Department of Environmental Conservation has released its revised report on hydraulic fracturing and the 90 day comment period has now started. That’s right it seems the DEC has extended the comment period by 30 days. Environmental groups have insisted that the comment period should be extended to 180 days, while the gas industry has said 60 days is plenty.

For those interested in commenting the DEC offers these rules:

“Written comments will be accepted through the close of business December 12, 2011 by two methods only:

Electronic submission using a web-based comment form available on DEC’s website (preferred method); or
Paper submission mailed or delivered to: Attn: dSGEIS Comments, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, 625 Broadway,Albany, NY 12233-6510. Please include the name, address, and affiliation (if any) of the commenter. Paper submissions also will be accepted at the public hearings listed below.

Due to the expected volume, comments that are faxed, telephoned, or emailed to the DEC will not be accepted for the official record. This is to ensure that all comments are captured properly and can be included during the review process. Please use DEC’s web-based comment form to provide your input.
Public Hearings

DEC plans to hold four public hearings during the comment period for the SGEIS and regulations in November. The meetings will be held in Broome, Steuben and Sullivan counties, as well as New York City. Dates and locations will be announced shortly.”

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. It is triggered by the sincerness communicated in the post I looked at. And after this post Gotham Gazette – The Wonkster » Blog Archive » Fracking Study Out, Start Your Commenting. I was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;) I do have a few questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it simply me or do some of these remarks appear as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Would you list all of your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
