Groton Resource Awareness Coalition
GRAC is a group of Groton residents interested in raising public awareness of issues related to gas drilling, including risks involved with unconventional gas drilling (a.k.a. “hydrofracking” or “fracking”). We believe that all of our neighbors, whether their land is leased or not, value clean drinking water, clean air, and the recreational opportunities and quality of life in Groton, NY. GRAC was created in 2011.
We organize educational public forums on a range of topics related to unconventional gas drilling and the potential industrialization of the rural landscape. We aim to work with the town board to explore and plan ordinances that will protect the rural landscape of Groton, our rights to clean water, clean air, and the quiet enjoyment of our homes and property.
Current Projects/Meeting Times;
We are working on a petition drive and public forums to educate Groton residents about the impacts that hydrofracking will have on the region.
Our meetings are on the first the third Wednesdays of each month at 7:00pm at the Groton Town Hall at 101 Conger Blvd, Groton. Help us plan and execute our petition drive and public awareness campaign.
