Hydraulic Fracturing Impacts

High volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas is widespread in the Marcellus and Utica shale region of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio, and prospectively in New York. There is much concern about public health, but currently little discussion of impacts on biological resources. Hudsonia is analyzing the impacts of fracking on biodiversity and has recently published articles on potential impacts of fracking on species with limited ranges in News From Hudsonia and Environmental Practice.
