In an effort to fully understand the possible impact of any future commercial natural gas development in or around Solebury, the Township retained geologist Jay Parrish and environmental planning expert Tom Daniels to evaluate the consequences of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," and recommend any steps the Township might take to protect our natural resources.
In their public presentation at the Solebury Board of Supervisors meeting on Jan. 17, the experts presented their conclusion that the Township and its immediate surroundings are unlikely areas for gas exploration. They also offered a range of recommendations to address the remote possibility of future gas development.
