***MEDIA ADVISORY***

FOR THIS

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7th

CASTELLI & COHEN

TO DISCUSS FRACKING BAN

IN WESTCHESTER

In advance of “National Freedom from Fracking Toxic Waste” Day, Assemblyman Robert J. Castelli (R, C, – Goldens Bridge) will be joined by Businessman and state senate candidate Bob Cohen at press conference this Friday at the Byram Lake Reservoir to give an important update on the status of legislation for a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.

Castelli and Cohen will discuss the environment and health impacts hydrofracking may bring to New York and potential legislative remedies, including a potential ban on the controversial measure. Hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracking is a mining technique that is used to drill for natural gas. Many people are concerned that the chemicals used during the drilling process could contaminate the downstate water supply.

The Byram Lake Reservoir, located in the New York City watershed between Bedford and North Castle, provides drinking water for Mount Kisco and the surrounding area. It is connected through aquifers to wastewater treatment works that may one day accept fracking wastewater.

The details for FRIDAY’s event are as follows:
