Survey of County Officials Indicates That Shale Has Been Good For Ohio

In the first survey of elected officials in counties where gas and oil producers are drilling horizontal wells into shale, laying pipeline, and building processing plants, Ohio University found few environmental concerns. 
Conducted by OU's Consortium for Energy, Economics & the Environment, the 17-county survey asked  county commissioners, township trustees and mayors and city managers what has been happening in their areas and what their concerns were. 
Most said it was a net positive for their areas, said Scott Miller, director of the consortium. Counties surveyed included Trumbull in the north to Washington County in the south.  Carroll, Harrison, Guernsey, Tuscarawas , Belmont and Monroe counties were among those with high numbers of shale wells.
