Springfield To Hold Hearing About Fracking Ban

GeneseeNow —  Thursday, July 3, 2014

Talking about a moratorium on fracking in Springwater.

There’s a public hearing on Monday to get opinions on stopping natural gas and petroleum exploration in the town. The hearing begins at 7 p.m. in the main meeting room of the Town Hall.

If passed, the law would prohibit drilling natural gas or petroleum exploration and prohibit underground storage. This week, a state court said the towns can ban fracking by using their zoning laws.
