Presentation by Evan Kane, Groundwater Planning Supervisor, NC DENR Division of Water Quality

In May 2012, the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources completed a study of the potential for development of shale gas in North Carolina. With the passage of Senate Bill 820 this summer, the NC General Assembly lifted prohibitions on technologies needed to exploit this potential resource and directed DENR to develop regulations for the shale gas exploration and production activities.

Evan Kane will present an overview of some of the water quality considerations associated with potential shale gas development in North Carolina and a preview of the regulatory development process that lies ahead.

Continuing Education Credits:  This forum will provide 1 PDH (professional development hour) for professional engineers and surveyors, contingent upon board approval.

Luncheon location:  Jane S. McKimmon Center, Raleigh, NC
