  • Description:

    At Conor O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub 318 S. Main St.  How does "fracking", or high volume hydraulic fracturing, really work? What are the public concerns, potential hazards and risks? What is the potential for growth of this industry in Michigan? Please join Brian Ellis, Knute Nadelhoffer, and Kim Wolske, U-M authors of a new set of technical reports on fracking, for a discussion of these questions and of what public policies might be prudent to protect our environment, our health, and our invaluable freshwater resources in the Great Lakes Region.
