Fracking to be the subject of Wyoming PBS program tonight at 7:30 p.m.

(Riverton, Wyo.)  – A process used by energy development firms to produce natural gas from tight sand formations, hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a hot issue nationwide especially in a farming area east Pavillion. Residents there often serve as fracking’s poster child due to alleged contamination of water wells from the process.

Tonight, Friday, October 5 at 7:30 p.m. on Wyoming PBS, Wyoming Chronicle host Richard Ager talks with the Director of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, John Corra; Interim Supervisor of Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, Bob King; Powder River Basin Resource Council Organizer, Deb Thomas; and energy reporter/Wyofile Chief Editor Dustin Bleizeffer about this difficult issue.

Wyoming Chronicle repeats Fridays at 11:30 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 p.m.
