Saving Times Beach

BUFFALO, N.Y. - It is a sanctuary growing on Buffalo's industrial legacy. While ghosts of its toxic past still haunt Times Beach Nature Preserve, its thriving life tells a different tale, one of the incredible resiliency of nature as well as the determination of community to preserve a unique location.

Times Beach has had a colorful history, and not all of it good. It was once a bustling shantytown, and a center of commerce. In the 1940's the US Army Corp Of Engineers began using the site as a dumping ground for dredged materials from the Buffalo River and Harbor.

The place eventually became so contaminated that it was closed and abandoned by the mid 70's. But the environment is nothing if not determined, and once again left undisturbed, Mother Nature re-established herself .

Anti Fracking Protests in Buffalo and Around Country

  The controversial issue of hydro fracking took center stage in Buffalo's Niagara Square and elsewhere around the country Saturday as protestors called on New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to ban the process.

   The drilling process for natural gas is now under review by the State DEC and State Health Department. Officials in Albany are trying to decide whether or not to allow it in areas of the state in the Marcellus Shale formation like the Southern Tier.  

   Opponents claim that the injection of chemicals, sand, and water to access pockets of natural gas can be risky. Rita Yelda of the group Food & Water Watch says "It uses a number of carcinogens and endocrine disrupting chemicals and there have been instances of these chemicals ending up in people's water. Whether it's because the drilling didn't go quite as planned or the wastewater wasn't disposed of properly."
