Fracking is Key for New York Development

Hydrofracking—drilling into the Marcellus shale near the Finger Lakes—continues to be a big controversy in New York. The public and the natural gas industry are still waiting for the state Department of Environmental Conservation to complete its environmental impact study, two-and-a-half years after it started. As the Innovation Trail's Daniel Robison reports, the natural gas industry hopes permits for new drilling follow soon after.

The Innovation Trail is a collaboration among five upstate public media outlets, reporting about New York's innovation economy. Support comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
