CLA Letter to DEC
On November 21, 2011, the Conesus Lake Association sent our comments to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation regarding the draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (dSGEIS) on horizontal drilling and high-volume hydraulic fracturing (hydrofracking) as a method of gas extraction from the Marcellus Shale. The letter reviews our adopted position (March 2011), and our concern about moving forward with permitting prior to the completion of Federal and State research into the implications of hydrofracking on critical water and related land resource issues. Until the completion of these Government studies, the CLA believes that the current New York State moratorium on hydrofracking should be extended; and no drilling permits issued. Please contact the CLA at
with any questions and concerns.
What is the Conesus Stewardship Initiative? The Conesus Stewardship Initiative is a cohesive set of actions designed to educate watershed residents on the impact they have on the lake’s water quality and to promote lake friendly residential best practices. Through these actions and programs, we hope to assist and inspire all watershed residents to become proactive stewards of the future health of our lake. All of us ... doing our part.
