Commission Releases Fracking Ban Proposal for Delaware River

Last Edited:

The Delaware River Basin Commission released a draft of the new proposals late Thursday that would permanently ban fracking, but environmentalists fear that the measures don't go far enough. The proposed rules outline a permanent ban on fracking in the region, which environmentalists have long called for, but would still allow for fracking wastewater to be dumped in the river basin.
