State to Take Comments on Gas Drilling This Week

New York state regulators will begin taking public comments on revised gas drilling rules this week, but an extensive environmental review outlining the basis for those rules remains incomplete. 

Health and environmental groups have criticized Governor Andrew Cuomo's Department of Environmental Conservation for issuing the revised regulations before completing a health review or releasing a final version of a massive environmental impact study initiated in 2008. The state has had a moratorium on shale gas development since the study began. 

                                 

The revised regulations include new water testing requirements, public input on permits and enhanced chemical disclosure.
