ODNR Seeking More Equipment to Monitor Seismic Activity Near Disposal Wells

From The Columbus Dispatch:
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources plans to buy more equipment to monitor seismic activity near new and proposed disposal wells that pump fracking wastes underground.
Agency officials will ask the state Controlling Board on Monday to approve the $257,287 expenditure without soliciting competitive bids as generally required. They prefer to work with a California company from which they’ve bought compatible equipment, according to a request submitted to the board.
Department officials have not decided where in Ohio the new equipment will be used. The state has seismometers in several locations in eastern Ohio. The new equipment would provide more information about disposal wells and any seismic disturbances they might create.
