Oil and gas drilling and the water quality issue

May 18, 2013
The Marietta Times

If this is a concern to you, you are not alone. Spurred by the promise of increased oil and gas drilling activity in our area, the Washington Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) office has received several inquiries this past year. The questions and concerns have been about leasing, royalties, fracturing, and water contamination. While the SWCD can offer some advice about protecting water resources, additional items such as leasing, royalty payments and fracturing can be directed to an attorney, and, or to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Oil and Gas. The ODNR Oil and Gas website has a wealth of information for landowners.
