Since Earthworks released our 2015 report on oil and gas waste management in New York State, improvements have been made in state law governing the industry’s waste. However, several key policy gaps remain, putting New Yorkers at risk for exposure to toxins from the transport, storage, treatment, and disposal of unconventional oil and gas waste from Pennsylvania. This updated report offers the latest data and policy analysis, as well as changes still needed to protect the air, water, land and health of New York’s people and environment.
