Fractracker maps of NY bans and moratoria

There have been numerous updates to our hydrofracking bans and moratoria map in the past weeks, including bans in Meredith (Delaware County), Hartwick (Otsego County), Butternuts (Otsego County), Lafayette (Onondaga County) and Moravia (Cayuga County). Here’s the map http://www.fractracker.org/map/ny-moratoria/. For an interactive map with pop-up windows and links to legislation passed by many towns, go here: http://maps.fractracker.org/latest/?appid=68f3de3fc2a1462aaf700fff5ec0ab47
The persistence and endurance of this movement to safeguard environmental and human health in New York State is showing and growing. As always, please let me know if we’ve overlooked any towns that have passed prohibitions, or are actively working on them.
