Portage County Water Testing Reveals No Problems from Drilling to Date

From the Akron Beacon Journal:
The village in 2011 began studying the issue and planning what to do. Initially, 20 private wells were tested. That number later dropped to 16. The wells were tested twice in 2012 and again last spring Another round of tests is possible this fall.
The testing was centered in the ground water recharge and flow areas in nearby townships that feed the village’s two wells.
"We’re pleased with the results… but we didn’t want to be surprised by a problem," said Fran Teresi of the village’s Board of Public Affairs.
The testing and analysis cost Garrettsville $35,000. "For us, it was a project worth doing," she said.
The water tests also give the village a baseline look at what’s in the drinking water before potential problems arise from drilling or from injection wells used to get rid of drilling wastes.
