Recently, New York DEC issued its draft regulations for hydraulic fracturing based on the proposed requirements in the revised supplemental generic EIS released earlier this month. Public comment began yesterday and will run concurrently with the public comment period on the DSGEIS, which ends on December 12.  DEC  also released the proposed SPDES general permit for storm water discharges associated with hydraulic fracturing.  Public hearings will be held during November and here in New York on Nov. 30 at Tribeca Performing Arts Center. No permits can be issued for hydraulic fracturing until the SGEIS is finalized and the DEC issues the required Findings Statement.  The summary of express terms can be found on the DEC website at  http://www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/77373.html
