"The Department of Environmental Conservation regulates the development and production of oil and gas resources in New York State. The development of a potentially significant gas resource in the Marcellus Shale uses horizontal drilling and a high-volume hydraulic fracturing technique known as "slick water fracturing." This technique requires large volumes of water and requires further review under the State Environmental Quality Review Act ("SEQRA") before any well permits can be issued."
"Following the recent release of a report that outlines the environmental impact of fracking, the state of New York is likely to expand a ban on hydraulic fracturing to include all of the controversial gas extraction operations in the state."
