Keeping Queens Alert About Hydrofracking

(l to r) Queens Civic Congress Executive Vice President Rich Hellenbrecht; city Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Carter Strickland; state Sen. Tony Avella; state Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi; Queens College Professor Allan Ludman; (standing) Queens Civic Congress Vice President Tyler Cassell; and Croton Watershed Clean Water Coalition Vice President David Ferguson.

Council Member James F. Gennaro visits the Queens Civic Congress at the Union Plaza Care Center in Flushing last week to discuss the continued threat hydrofracking poses to the drinking water of New York City and the rest of the state. Hydrofracking is the practice of fracturing subterranean rock with a pressurized chemical mixture to release natural gas for extraction.
