Health study results on Fracking to come Monday

An in-depth review of the health effects of hydrofracking could be completed by Monday.

A panel of three prominent health experts are reviewing an analysis that was undertaken by the State Department of Environmental Conservation. Opponents to the practice of fracking were striving for a new, comprehensive health study, though they remain optimistic for the panel's findings.
