A Public Health Review of High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing for Shale Gas Development

This comprehensive review of the existing literature by the highest health authority of the state of New York subsequently led to a ban of high volume hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) by Governor Cuomo.
In conclusion the report says:
“The current scientific information is insufficient. Furthermore, it is clear from the existing literature and experience that HVHF activity has resulted in environmental impacts that are potentially adverse to public health. Until the science provides sufficient information to determine the level of risk to public health from HVHF and whether the risks can be adequately managed, HVHF should not proceed in New York State.”
