The Guernsey County commissioners have reiterated opposition to a planned drill cuttings treatment facility to be located in the Desmond Hall Industrial Park.
“Our position hasn’t changed,” said Commissioner Dave Wilson, speaking on behalf of the board. “The primary reason we had this meeting was to give the public an opportunity to hear from these people, for our state elected representatives ... with Senator (Troy) Balderson and Representative (Brian) Hill being here ... to be able to hear the concerns here, since they would be our conduit to the OEPA and the ODNR, and those who are in control of the permitting process.”
Wilson said concerns heard from residents and municipal and business representatives were varied.
“The concerns have been varied in terms of potential contamination to ground water,” he said, “in terms of wells, in terms of the secondary or backup water source for the Village of Byesville, a concern expressed by a representative here of Colgate-Palmolive for both potential water or airborne contamination issues. They have been pretty much as varied as the people in attendance.”Read more by clicking here.
