Michigan to hear from public on fracking rules story image

GAYLORD, Mich. (AP) - Michigan officials are holding two public hearings on state hydraulic fracturing rules.

The state Department of Environmental Quality will hear from Michigan residents about the drilling process known as fracking. The proposed rules released earlier this year address issues such as well location and permit application procedures.

Environmental groups have urged the state to increase fracking regulations. The Michigan League of Conservation Voters says fracking poses an environmental threat to lakes and rivers because it uses large amounts of water.

The first hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Gaylord and the second is Wednesday in Lansing.
