Webinar on Hydraulic Fracturing

The Clean Water America Alliance (CWAA) and American Water Resources Association (AWRA) will present a webinar on December 1, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. ET as part of their series on hydraulic fracturing, entitled, “Fresh Facts and Critical Choices.”  This webcast will discuss safeguards and concerns of natural gas recovery from deep shale formations.  Dr. Donald Siegel of Syracuse University will discuss the extent of potential natural gas supplies in shale in the United States, and how drilling and recovery can be done safely without impacts to humans or ecosystems if adequate safeguards are employed throughout the process.  Dr. Joseph Romm of the Center for American Progress will discuss possible impacts on humans and ecosystems if proper techniques for drilling and sealing of wells and recovery and storage/disposal of fracturing fluids and formation water are not in place or if accidents occur at any stage of the process.
