Speakers will provided information on the DEC’s revised draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact State (SGEIS), released July 8, including how the latest version differs from that initially released nearly two years ago.
Moderated by Martha Robertson, Chair of the Tompkins County Legislature, the forum included the following speakers, all recognized experts in the field of hydrofracking. Each speaker is linked to the segment of the session where they spoke.
