FRACKING, EARTHQUAKES, INJECTION WELLS, AND CONTAMINATION RISKS TO DRINKING WATER, AIR, AND SOIL TO BE DISCUSSED AT A FRACKFREE MAHONING VALLEY PUBLIC TOWNHALL – STYLE MEETING ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2012, AT THE ELM STREET YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO, UNITARIAN CHURCH
Youngstown, Ohio, 10/29/12 – An increasing number of citizens are expressing concerns about hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and related processes, earthquakes, injection wells, and fracking-related contamination risks to drinking water, soil, and air. To address some of these concerns, Frackfree Mahoning Valley (www.frackfreemahoning.blogspot.com ) and Frackfree America National Coalition (www.frackfreeamerica.org ) will hold a series of public townhall-style meetings for the community to get accurate information, to ask questions, voice their concerns, and seek positive solutions to safeguard the public health and safety as it relates to fracking. The first public meeting will take place on Thursday, November 1, 2012, at 7 PM to 8:30 PM at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Youngstown, Channing Hall, 1105 Elm St. (Elm and Illinois, across from Wick Park), Youngstown, OH 44505
The public and media are invited and urged to attend.
The meeting will include a presentation about earthquakes and other drilling-related topics by Dr. Ray Beiersdorfer, Ph.D., professor of geology. A showing of some brief, compelling films related to oil and gas drilling will also be shown. A question and answer period with time for audience discussion will follow.
Frackfree Mahoning Valley says that it is essential for the public to have access to accurate information, transparency, and honest, open dialogue about fracking and related processes especially in light of Youngstown City Council’s recent misguided, erroneous decision to greenlight fracking within city limits, historic Mill Creek Park facing the threat of fracking, and the drilling in the protected watershed area of Meander reservoir, a drinking water source for over 200,000 people in our area.
“I anticipate another lively discussion on Thursday since this topic involves the prospect of fracking and drilling near or under parks, schools, homes, farms, forests, and cemeteries. It is truly astonishing and unacceptable that fracking in such areas is even considered and permitted,” said Susie Beiersdorfer of Frackfree Mahoning Valley and Frackfree America National Coalition.
