Times: Cuomo plan would allow Marcellus Shale fracking in some counties 

A New York Times article says state officials are discussing plans to allow natural gas extraction via high-volume hydraulic fracturing in some counties. But it would only be allowed in communities that support the technique’s use.

The Times says the proposal would limit high-volume fracking to sections of the Marcellus Shale deeper than 2,000 feet; the article includes a map illustrating that area. Fracking would be banned in state parks, the Catskill Park, national historic districts, and aquifers.

The plan is meant to limit the risks of groundwater contamination while allowing some natural gas development, the Times says.
