Citizens Townhall-style Meeting on NE Ohio Fracking Waste Injection Wells on September 27, 2018

Citizens will hold an anti-injection well public townhall-style meeting in Brookfield, Ohio on Thursday, September 27, 2018,  at 7 PM to 9:30 PM,  to discuss proposed fracking waste injection wells planned to be sited way too near family homes, businesses, government buildings and important waterways. 
       Building upon the success of a very well-attended August meeting, citizens will hold another public town hall-style meeting on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 7 PM to 9:30 PM at the Brookfield Ohio Fire Hall (social hall), at 774 State Route 7 NE, Brookfield, Ohio 44403.  There will be a public discussion about five proposed Brookfield fracking waste injection wells and also a new toxic waste injection well proposed for Hubbard Township, Ohio.

A petition opposing the proposed Hubbard Township injection well will be available for attendees to sign.

        These wells are planned to be sited way too near family homes, businesses, government buildings, and important waterways. This is unacceptable, say citizens.
       Meeting organizers are reaching out to invite and involve residents from Brookfield, Hubbard, Hubbard Township, Vienna, North Lima, and the entire region, including people in Pennsylvania. All elected and public officials and candidates are also invited. The meeting is free and open to the public. All media are urged to please attend.

       Meeting organizers say that Ohio cannot be used as a toxic waste dumping ground.  
       Injection well-related spills and releases that result in water contamination can occur such as the release in Vienna, Ohio in 2015 that destroyed two wetlands and a pond.  Groups say injection wells, such as the ones proposed for Brookfield and Hubbard Township, pose unacceptable risks of potential adverse impacts to air, water, and land. They also pose unacceptable risks of more man-made earthquakes, like the 2011 magnitude 4.0 Youngstown injection well-linked quake, in an already earthquake-prone region where abandoned coal mines exist.
       Citizens are calling for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) to be proactive and to immediately deny the injection well permits and revoke those that are already issued in order to protect the public interest, the environment, and the public health, safety, and welfare.
       Groups stress that ODNR must not force families, individuals, and communities to accommodate and adjust to the unfair and risky placement of toxic waste injection wells located practically in some peoples’ backyards. Citizens have private property rights and rights to the protection of public health and safety, as well, that must not be violated by the unwise siting of injection wells so near family homes, important waterways, and other vulnerable structures.

       Groups helping to coordinate the September 27th meeting are Brookfield Citizens Against Injection Wells (BCAIW)  ( https://stopfrackingwasteneohio.blogspot.com/  )    Frackfree America National Coalition (FANC), based in Youngstown, Ohio (www.frackfreeamerica.org ) and  Buckeye Environmental Network (BEN) (www.buckeyeenvironmentalnetwork.org ).
         The groups, FANC and BEN, believe based upon science and experience, that injection is inherently unsafe and that no amount of regulation can make it safe, especially in a highly populated, earthquake-prone area where Hubbard Township and Brookfield are located and where there are abandoned coal mines.
