Basic Information

Slickwater Horizontal Hydrofracking is a new process for natural gas extraction that could shortly be a regular process seen in upstate New York because of the extensive Marcellus and Utica Shale deposits found throughout Central New York and the Southern Tier. NOON and the Onondaga Nation oppose hydrofracking because of the intensive resource use and the environmental and health impacts that are often incurred from the drilling process, inevitable accidents, and their aftermath. Hydrofracking will harm our communities, our land, our water, and our air; the impacts will be felt for generations.

Hydrofracking sites scattered around the Upper Green River Valley, Wyoming.
