Protesters Briefly Shut Down Brine Storage Site, 10 Arrested

From the Associated Press:
 Authorities say a protest by members of environmental groups temporarily shut down operations at a gas drilling waste storage site in Southeast Ohio.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said it happened Tuesday at the GreenHunter Water storage facility in New Matamoras on the Ohio River.
About 100 people staged the protest, which included one of them perching on a chair at the top of a 30-foot pole. Operations at the facility — which stores wastewater from hydraulic fracturing, or fracking — were disrupted for about four hours.
