Proposed pipelines cause controversy in upstate

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on



Environmentalists cheered last December when Health Commissioner Howard Zucker urged Governor Cuomo to prohibit hydraulic fracturing for natural gas because of unknown health risks it posed to New Yorkers. However, this DOES NOT mean the fuel won’t still flow through our state. Dig a few feet below the surface and you’ll find a complex network of pipes carrying gas and fuel to heat homes, cook food and sell for profit.

This week our Jenna Flanagan of the Innovation Trail takes a look at two proposed pipelines in upstate that are causing a controversy in in the Leatherstocking and Capital Regions.
