(BINGHAMTON, NY) Yesterday, Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo and Senator Lea Webb sent a letter to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) concerning Southern Tier CO2 Clean Energy Solutions’ (‘Southern Tier Solutions’) solicitation of leases from local landowners for a new gas extraction process.
The letter, addressed to DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos, requests information on Southern Tier Solutions’ proposed gas extraction method and how it aligns with current state and federal law. The letter was issued in response to inquiries from concerned constituents, some of whom received land lease solicitations from the company.
