EFFECTS OF FRACKING COULD BE FAR-REACHING
A correction has been appended

Alex Meyer / Senior Writer
Felicia Mettler never saw herself taking a stand for an environmental cause. But when injection well activity began in Torch, a few miles from her Coolville home, she weighed the impact on her family and the land around her. “As a mother, it’s my job to protect my kids, and I don’t want to move,” Mettler, 45, a stay-at-home mother of three, said. “I’m on land that is family land. My mother, I could throw a rock at her house. My brother lives right next door.” Injection wells are used to dispose of the chemical waste that can result from fracking. Mettler and other local residents are concerned whether the three injection wells in Torch — a 30-minute drive from Athens — will affect the environment and people’s health.

Injection wells are involved in the process of hydraulic fracturing, otherwise known as fracking, wherein a mixture of liquids are pumped deep underground to break up rock formations that contain natural gas or oil so those resources can be extracted.

“My mother-in-law and father-in-law live in Torch, they live 1,800 feet from the injection well.” Mettler said. “What are we breathing? What are going to be the health effects?”

In recent years, residents in Athens and across the state have voiced worries regarding fracking and the waste that can result from it. Most recently, those concerns have centered around potential fracking in the nearby Wayne National Forest after the Bureau of Land Management auctioned forest land that could be used for fracking on Dec. 13, according to a previous Post report.

Fracking remains a controversial topic, with some championing its energy and economic potential and others fearing its effects on water sources, forests, air quality and public health. [CONTINUED]

OHIO has only one National Forest, the Wayne National Forest and somehow (don't ask me how this could possibly happen) FRACKING has encroached upon it.
So that is what the big deal is.

Had a long post about a study of fracking and health, with images ready to go, but just before a rainstorm here, lost it all... everything froze up and had to flip the power switch to unfreeze it.
Will re-post in awhile...
