Ohio Joins Interstate Group to Look Into Fracking-Related Issues
From the Alliance Review:
With as many as 179 underground disposal wells, Ohio has absorbed more than 1 billion gallons in hydraulic fracturing wastewater since 2010, according to state records.
But with all that wastewater comes potentially devastating side effects: Earthquakes. While officials and scientists spar over the relationship between fracking, wastewater disposal and quakes, Ohio is aiming to advance its understanding of the industry and protect the property values of homeowners.
This month, Buckeye State regulators joined Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma officials to address the earthquake risk associated with hydraulic fracturing.
