Kentucky group to hold meeting on natural gas fracturing

An environmental group focused on hydraulic fracturing in Kentucky is meeting in Berea.

The group called Frack Free Foothills says it was formed to keep Kentucky free of the practice known as "fracking." It's a method used to extract natural gas by injecting water, sand and chemicals into the ground under high pressure to release the gas.

The meeting Tuesday at the Russell Action Folk Center in Berea will include a visitor from West Virginia to talk about the effects of fracking in that state. Environmental attorney Tom FitzGerald will also be speaking at the meeting.

Last month, the state of New York banned fracking, saying the potential health and environmental impacts are too great.
