Hydraulic Fracturing: Beyond Name Calling to Real Environmental Protection
Shale gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing issues and opportunities are often politically-charged, emotion-filled debates. There's a need to share more facts, identify data gaps and policy choices, and discuss practical steps to reduce risks. This series will bring together experts in water, energy, and conservation to explore the most important issues and disclose the most successful steps to prevent problems through each stage of the process, from locating an operation to site closure and restoration. The webinars won't be "technical" but will involve presenters with technical expertise from industry, and regulatory, policy, and environmental NGO sectors. Join us on Tuesday, January 15, for the first discussion: "Knowing Your Watershed and Assessing Potential Environmental, Economic, and Social Impacts". Ben Grumbles, president of the U.S. Water Alliance and former EPA Assistant Administrator will moderate the series.
This is a 4 part series - You will only need to provide your contact information once. For each additional webcast you will just need to enter your email address and password.
Location, location, location. Upfront analysis can make all the difference in determining success or failure of a hydraulic fracturing project. Experts will describe the array of factors that shape environmental, economic, and social impacts, from the availability of affordable water supplies, to hydrology and geology above and below ground, to the energy-water nexus, and the impact on property values and community attitudes.
