This one-day forum will bring together scientific and technical experts to examine and discuss various issues regarding hydraulic fracturing — the mere words of which often conjure an emotional response.
Some believe the promise of greater energy independence, job growth, and affordable energy supplies locked away in the Marcellus Shale, Utica Shale, and Eagle Ford Shale formations overshadow other concerns. Others contend the potential, or perceived potential, for environmental or public health damage is too great a risk to take. Misunderstanding and miscommunication cloud the discussion further.
If you are interested in learning more about issues related to hydraulic fracturing and Midwest groundwater Issues, register to attend the two-day conference NGWA Focus Conference on Midwestern Groundwater Issues, which also includes this hydraulic fracturing forum, for only $180 more.
Full-day attendance at this conference is worth 0.75 CEUs.
