New York City Council Town Hall Meeting on Fracking

On Tuesday, August 24th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, the New York City Council will hold a town hall meeting to discuss natural gas drilling in New York State.

Let the New York City Council know you don’t want gas drillers to frack with your water!

At this public meeting, residents will have the opportunity to comment on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) official study examining the potential health and environmental impacts of fracking.

It’s important that NYC Council members hear from you and other New Yorkers about this critical issue.

While the EPA is holding hearings elsewhere in the State, none have been proposed for New York City. This town hall will provide you with an important opportunity to raise your questions and concerns about natural gas drilling and its potential impact on the region’s water supply.

Please RSVP at (212) 788-6871or events@council.nyc.gov by Friday, August 20th.
