The Delaware River Basin Commission has extended the period for written comment on proposed regulations regarding hydraulic fracturing activities in the basin.
People now have until March 30 to voice their opinions in addition to two public hearings scheduled for February and March.
"The commissioners believe the extended comment period and two additional hearings announced [Tuesday] in response to numerous requests will provide adequate opportunities for the public and government officials to study the proposed regulations and offer input to inform the commissioners’ decision-making process," said DRBC Executive Director Steve Tambini in a news release.
The hearings will take place as follows:
Feb. 22 at 3 p.m. - Lisa Scheller-Wayne Woodman Community Services Center at LCCC at 4525 Education Park Dr., Schnecksville. You can register in advance here.
March 6 at 1:30 p.m. - The commission will host a hearing by telephone. The public is encouraged to listen by calling 1-866-831-8713. Register for an opportunity to speak here.
