Dumping in Ohio???
*** The drilling going on in Ohio has taken an ugly turn.
A Valley lawmaker is demanding answers to important questions, after tens of thousands of gallons of oil and oilfield waste are dumped into a storm drain. Waste that has now found its way into the Mahoning River.
On Monday, the EPA and Ohio Department of Natural Resources continued directing the containment and clean-up.
State Representative Bob Hagan says it's now estimated that up to 40,000 gallons of oil and oilfield waste has been dumped into a storm drain at 2761 Salt Springs Road. Property owned by D&L Energy.....
There is no going back from this. You cannot collect all the material that was dumped. You just have to wonder how much of this happened before and will occur in the future.
