Seneca Lake Splash a Success

What began as a series of concerts to protest hydrofracking has turned into an environmental awareness event that draws thousands. The eighth annual Seneca Lake Big Splash took place over the weekend at the Hector fairgrounds. In addition to music, the event featured vendors and information on sustainability. A solar power station powered a number of the displays and vendor tents. Some area wineries added their voices to those protesting hyrdrofracking. The state Court of Appeals has agreed to hear a case on whether local communities have the right to ban fracking. Industry groups say only the DEC has the right to ban the practice.
