Presentation on Fracking & Impact on North Carolina
A presentation on "What is Fracking and what does it mean for North Carolina?" will be held Tuesday July 22nd from 7:00pm-8:00pm at the Spruce Pine Library. The recent passage of the Energy Modernization Act has sped up the process for shale gas development and opened WNC for exploration. Come and learn more about shale gas drilling, the use of hydraulic fracturing, N.C. legislation, a national perspective and what it means for our communities and environment. Nicole DelCogliano will be leading the presentation. She is a resident of Yancey county and is researching shale gas development for her Masters Thesis at Appalachian State University.
