Hydraulic Fracturing Panel Discussion to be held Sept. 3, 2014, at Rappahannock Community College in Warsaw, Va.

On September 3, 2014, starting at 2 p.m., the Northern Neck–Chesapeake Bay Region Partnership is organizing a panel discussion on fracking (hydraulic fracturing) for natural gas.  The event will be held at the Warsaw, Va., campus of Rappahannock Community College.  The discussion will focus on the region underlain by the Taylorsville basin, a geologic feature where overlying  land has been leased for possible gas drilling. 

The panel is scheduled to include Virginia Secretary of Natural Resources Molly Ward; Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones; Rick Parrish of the Southern Environmental Law Center; Greg Kozera of the Virginia Oil and Gas Association; and a staff person from the U.S. EPA.
