State tells D&L Energy ‘not yet’ to reopening North Star-1 well

COLUMBUS

The state has rejected a request from D&L Energy to reopen the North Star-1 well that was linked to a dozen earthquakes in the Youngstown area.

D&L suggested reopening North Star-1 well along with four others within seven miles and recording the pressure of injection using sensitive seismic equipment, according to the letter from D&L provided to the Vindicator by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

After reviewing the proposals from D&L, the state decided to allow the current indefinite moratorium to remain in effect, said Carlo LaParo, spokesman for the ODNR.
