Forum Educates Traverse City Community on Fracking

Posted: Updated:

A hot topic across Northern Michigan had people talking in Traverse City tonight.

The process of hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking.

There is a wide range of opinions on the method to extract natural gas... So the Departments of Environmental Quality and Natural Resources have been working to educate communities about fracking.

While many feel it poses a danger to their health and the environment... The state assures them, it is safe.
