HYDRAULIC FRACTURING

Image

The Nova Scotia Department of Energy commissioned the Verschuren Centre for Sustainability in Energy and the Environment at Cape Breton University to conduct an independent review and public engagement process to explore the social, economic, environmental, and health implications of hydraulic fracturing practices and their associated wastewater streams. 

FINAL REPORT

On August 28th, 2014 the final report was submitted to the independent review panel on hydraulic fracturing to the Honourable Andrew Younger MLA, Minister of Energy.   The process was overseen by the Verschuren Centre for Sustainability in Energy and the Environment and took exactly a year; it involved interactions with more than 1200 stakeholders in public meetings and more than 200 individuals and organizations who submitted evidence to the review and responded to discussion papers.  A link to the full report together with TV, radio and editorial reactions to the review are provided below.  The Governments response on September 3rd, 2014, is also available in a link below.
