UT Hopes To Lease Land To Fund Studies On Fracking
Environmental groups are asking a committee of the State Building Commission to prevent the use of a gas drilling technique at a forested tract owned by UT. The Southern Environmental Law Center asked, on behalf of a half-dozen environmental groups that fracture drilling, or fracking, not be allowed in the Cumberland Research Forest. A letter to the commission's executive subcommittee states the University of Tennessee is dragging its feet on public records requests and asks the panel to defer action on drilling until the public is better informed of university intentions. UT is asking to solicit bids to lease part of the 8-thousand acre tract. The university said it would use revenue from leases to fund studies into the environmental impact of fracking. (bg)
