Maryland’s Department of the Environment (MDE) is moving ahead to finalize best management practices for hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus Shale. It is in the process of updating its draft report, Marcellus Shale Safe Drilling Initiative Study Part II Best Practices. Chesapeake PSR submitted comments expressing concerned that the proposed best practices are not based on a scientific assessment of likely impacts in Maryland and would allow polluters to hide behind complicated trade secret rules and non-disclosure agreements. We are working with our partners and legislators to fix key problems in the report. Read are comments here.
In addition, PSR , the Maryland Environmental Health Network, and the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments submitted comments on a study being commissioned by the Maryland’s Department of Health & Mental Hygiene on the proposed health effects of hydraulic fracturing. The draft scope of the study is found at www.marcellushealth.org. Chesapeake PSR has been a key player in Maryland in pushing for increased attention to the health concerns associated with hydraulic fracturing. Read our comments here.
