Ohio Utica Shale

Carroll County group seeking to share water testing data

By Bob Downing Published: February 7, 2013

On Feb. 16, a grass-roots group in Ohio's Carroll County is asking residents to share water-quality test results in order to help researchers track water trends in the Utica shale drilling area.

The Carroll Concerned Citizens will use document scanners to capture detailed lab reports landowners have received  as part of water-quality pre-testing from coal companies, gas-oil companies or tests conducted for the landowners.

A data release form will be available for landowners to indicate how the data may be shared and whether their address or simply thwe township in which they reside should be used as a geographic reference.

"Data submitted will become part of the water data base that we have been building through our Water Sentinels monitoring program," said Paul Feezel, the chair of the Carroll Concerned Citizaens.

"We are also working with FracTracker(another grass-roots group) and a number of universities to share water-quality information as part of a growing number of long-term water-quality studies," he said.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Church of Christ, 353 Moody Ave., Carrollton.

For more information, contact Feezel at 330-813-8880 or
