A public information session on the controversial issue was held in Barneveld Thursday night so people could get more information on the topic.
John Preston, chairperson of the "Steuben, Trenton, Russia and Remsen" organization says Trenton wants to preserve the character of the area, and he says hydrofracking could threaten that.
The public forum brought in a full house and all different aspects of gas drilling were discussed.
One resident made the drive out from Forestport.
He says he's checked out various hydrofracking forums around Central New York in order to learn as much as possible.
