Ohio Utica Shale

Carroll County meeting on March 5

By Bob Downing Published: February 21, 2012

Ray Rummell of the Carroll County Soil and Water Conservation District will be the keynote speaker at a March 1 meeting of the Carroll Concerned Citizens.

Rummell will provide landowners with insight on best management practices for the design, installation and post-installation reclamation of natural gas pipelines.

"By far, Carroll County has the most shale drilling activity in Ohio, and landowners need to know hot to protect their property rights during each phase of the drilling process," said Paul Feezel, chair of the grass-roots group.

He added, "These new pipelines will not only effect the landowners with drilling pads, but many other landowners as each well is connected to a feeder or main pipeline.

Feezel said the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has little involvement in pipelines and the majority of the responsibility falls on landowners to identify and report problems.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the Church of Christ Christian Disciples, 353 Moody Ave., Carrollton.
