Fracture mining proposed for VA-WV

Postby peter febb » Sep 8, 2013 7:21 am

By the end of the month, the U.S. Forest Service is expected to decide whether to ban or allow the controversial method of drilling called hydraulic fracturing under the forest’s new, 15-year management plan. The decision will settle a raging dispute between conservationists and the oil and gas industry.
