|Title:||Onondaga County votes to ban hydrofracking waste|
|Date:||Dec 29, 2013|
|With no discussion, the county Legislature today unanimously approved a law that forbids the
treatment of hydrofracking fluids in any wastewater treatment plant and the spreading of it
on roads to reduce ice.
"This is not a typical hydrofracking law that would polarize both sides," said Legislator Michael Plochocki, R-Marcellus, chairman of the legislative Environmental Protection Committee. "This is an issue of hydrofracking waste and its proper disposal."
