Chemical disclosure is a law in OHIO. Also OSHA has required MSDS sheets for all chemicals used in any industry to be readily available.

"Berry also asked the commission if there are any current wells on park land and was told that there is a gas well in Stambaugh Park that’s no longer in use."
This statement is not correct. The well is called the Stambaugh Park #1D and it is in operation.

"The park land is not part of the permitted area; however, under drilling regulations in Ohio, Hilcorp could drill to within 100 feet of the park’s property line. Local environmental groups are worried about a drilling rig located near the youth sports fields at the park."
If you review the permit application that is available online you would note that the wellhead is located over a 1/4 of a mile from the township park.

Here's an idea - let's round up all the protestors that came in from "out of the area" (Kent, Cleveland, Hudson and elsewhere) that the Village officials allowed to attend meetings concerning leasing mineral rights IN POLAND - lets see if they want to pay these taxes :)

When the Village starts using it's own assets first then maybe, not until then. The village turns DOWN the opportunity to lease oil and gas rights and now they want the residents to pay more tax? ARE YOU SERIOUS!

Nice Job Gene - it is good to read something with some common sense for a change!

FYI to author of this article. The drilling process as it relates to any type of Oil and Gas well is NOT done using hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic Fracturing is used in the completion phase to "stimulate" oil and gas production from wells that would otherwise not produce naturally. It would be refreshing to read someone's article that actually spent some time on research!!
