City of Elmira Fracking Moratorium

Industrial gas extraction (hydraulic fracturing) threatens our water, land, and air. Allowing this practice in our community will significantly endanger our health and well-being. Hydrofracking is a heavy industrial process that in surrounding states has severely snared traffic and damaged local roads, economies, tourism, agriculture, and property values.

A moratorium will allow time to determine whether a permanent ban would be in the best interest of City of Elmira citizens.
