Trumbull County Meeting: Residents Seek Control of Injection Wells and Toxic Fracking Waste

Thursday 6pm Meeting on fracking waste injection wells, Feb 5: Due to growing concern over injection wells in Trumbull County, the commissioners and County Engineer Randy Smith will hold a second public meeting to discuss Trumbull County becoming a dumping ground for fracking waste water, updates on oil and gas exploration and injection wells locally, how permits are issued and regulated, and how objections can be made to ODNR and future legislation on injection wells. Presenting and taking questions will be Attorney Thomas G. Carey of Harrington, Hoppe and Mitchell who specializes in oil and gas industry matters. Well operators and industry public relations will also answer questions.
ODNR says Trumbull County leads the state in accepting waste to be injected into wells. They took in 2.3 million barrels in 2013.
In the first three months of 2014, wells in Ohio accepted 16 million barrels of waste into the ground statewide, with half of it coming from Pennsylvania.
