NY Governor Pushes to Permanently Ban Hydraulic Fracturing

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has included legislation in his budget proposal to permanently ban “high-volume” hydraulic fracturing in New York, five years after state regulators took action to stop unconventional natural gas development.

 

The measure, if enacted, would restrict the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) from approving permits authorizing an applicant to “drill, deepen, plug back or convert wells that use high-volume fracturing as a means to complete or recomplete a well,” the administration said.

 

The bill would apply to operations that use at least 300,000 gallons of water.
