Fallout From Illegal Brine Dumping in Youngstown Continues

More developments continue in relation to the 40,000 to 50,000 gallons of fracking waste that were illegally dumped into a storm sewer in Youngstown on January 31st.

The Youngstown Vindicator has a series of interviews examining the consequences of the event, which can be viewed by clicking here.

The Business Journal reports that D&L Energy may appeal the decision of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to permanently revoke their permits.  An excerpt:
D&L Energy said it is "reviewing the actions taken by ODNR relative to its companies' operating permits, and intends to respond to, and perhaps appeal, such action at the appropriate time and in the appropriate venue."
In a one paragraph statement, D&L said it cannot discuss the circumstances surrounding the incident of its "potential response until these matters are concluded."

The Ohio EPA announced that approximately 40,000 gallons of oil and water have been removed from the creek and storm sewer near D&L's property.
