Mayor Miner comments on hydrofracking issue in CNY

"I applaud Commissioner Grannis and Governor Paterson for the DEC's decision today to establish a separate review for high-volume horizontal gas drilling within the Skaneateles Lake watershed. I am very pleased that Commissioner Grannis agreed with my assessment that Skaneateles Lake is a truly unique environmental and economic resource. The City of Syracuse has invested millions of dollars over the years in protecting Skaneateles Lake and maintaining the filtration avoidance waiver. We cannot allow hydrofracking to jeopardize the decades of hard work and millions of dollars spent in protecting such an important regional asset."
