U.S. EPA names 31 to Hydraulic Fracturing Reseach Advisory Panel

The U.S. EPA's Science Advisory Board (SAB) has announced the formation of its Hydraulic Fracturing Research Advisory Panel. This panel of 31 experts (two from Penn State University) will provide scientific feedback on EPA’s research and will peer review EPA’s forthcoming (in 2014) draft report of results from its national study on the potential health and environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water resources

On May 7 and 8, 2013, the Panel will convene to provide individual feedback from panel members regarding EPA’s 2012 progress report on the study. EPA says that the public will also have the opportunity to provide comments for the Panel’s consideration.  

EPA's commitment to transparency in every step of this study is impressive, and essential.
