NY-GEO Drilling Group Meets with DEC November 16 2020

A group formed from the NY-GEO Policy Advisory Board has examined ways to streamline regulation of ground source heat pump drilling in New York State. The Drilling Group has developed a presentation and held a first meeting with officials from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).

The DEC itself has also begun looking at ways to make their permitting process more efficient to encourage the use of ground source heat pumps while protecting groundwater and public health and safety.
