Ohio is becoming a dumping ground for fracking waste, and we’re already seeing this waste ending up in our streams. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is failing to ensure the safety of Ohio’s citizens and environment; it’s time for the US EPA to step in.
Under Ohio’s current proposed budget, half of the revenue from fracking in state parks would go to the Clean Ohio Fund - which exists to fund cleanups in Ohio. This funding structure guarantees a net loss for Ohio’s environment by funding cleanups by making a bigger mess, in our state parks.
Tell Your Senator right now that the path to a Clean Ohio is not through dirty fracking in our state parks!
95% of Carroll depends on groundwater and yet, over the next ten years, ODNR will allow 2,000 unconventional gas wells and permit an underground coal mine without informing the public about potential impacts on water quality.
