Decision could come on Weathersfield well

American Water Management is requesting the ODNR to let them re-open a gas well in Weathersfield Township, Ohio.

WEATHERSFIELD TWP., Ohio (WYTV) – A decision could come from Columbus Thursday on whether or not to resume operations at a deep-injection well in Weathersfield Township.

The state shut down two wells at the American Water Management Services site in September, after seismic activity in the area.

State officials later allowed the shallow well to resume operations, but the deep well is still idle.

The Ohio Oil and Gas Commission agenda also includes an appeal from Frack Free Mahoning Valley, asking the state to reconsider its decision to allow an oilfield waste disposal facility in Youngstown.
