ABSTRACT
In this article, the authors focus on legal problems that have arisen in four states of the U.S. including Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio on hydrofracking. They state that the three states have high amount of Marcellus Shale formation which has resulted in the preemption debates among local and state governments. They also state that the U.S. Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) should prepare a plan in which both environmental and public risks are considered simultaneously.
