Statement on Court Decision to Protect Localities from Fracking

Katherine Nadeau, Water & Natural Resources Program Director


“Today’s ruling is a victory for common sense. Municipalities have always had the right to determine where heavy industrial activities are or are not allowed, and given its land use, community, and environmental impacts fracking is certainly a heavy industry. Congratulations to the towns of Middlefield and Dryden, as well as all of the friends of the court who stood up to those looking to force fracking down New Yorkers’ throats against the wishes of our people and communities.”
