Shale Gas Development in Ohio

Ohio Environmental Council, December 30, 2013

The proliferation of shale gas wells in Ohio using horizontal hydraulic fracturing methods has heightened concerns among scientists, landowners, and the public.

Questions about leases, roadways and truck traffic, chemicals used in drilling, emergency response, water testing, and potential health effects have been raised.

The Ohio Environmental Council has created this resource guide for anyone interested in information about shale gas drilling (“fracking”), especially residents in eastern Ohio.

We have a limited number of hard copy guides available. Please contact Melanie Houston at or (614) 487-5849 to request one.
