The fracking industry disposes of radioactive waste water from fracking at high pressures into abandoned vertical oil wells and new high volume, high pressure wells. These wells, called injection wells, can be compromised and will leak eventually. (Injection wells in Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico and Ohio are causing a growing number of earthquakes.)
Currently there are 13 active injection wells in the Columbus Metro Watershed, Ohio. Join Columbus Community Bill of Rights and concerned citizens on the next Morrow County injection well field trip on Saturday, February 4th. We plan to meet in Clintonville, then drive together up north for the tour. Plan to meet at 9am, and to return to Columbus mid-afternoon, around 4pm.
We will restrict vehicles to three cars, and we may rent a large van to accommodate everyone. Final details will be posted here shortly. We will be sure to email everyone who requests to join us on February 4th.

Ted Auch, FracTracker Alliance’s Great Lakes Program Coordinator, will take our group on this tour of up to eight of these wells.
