"Hello, I have read and re-read your post as with most others on this site from and concerning Ohio landowners. I would respectfully like to give some insight about some common misconceptions out there, and no, i do not work in the oil and gas…"
"AMEN! Those are some of the same reasons I signed back in November. In the past there was a well here and they plugged it back in the 90s. My land is just the same as it was when I was a kid. I will have my water tested…"
Hello folks. I wanted to share with you my rationale for signing that you might find helpful when talking to your neighbors, relatives or others who think you're actions are going to "ruin" the environment.In Stark County, at least, there are thousands of existing oil well, oil well sites and storage sites.
