Ted Auch, Ph.D., Ohio Program Coordinator and Administrator for FracTracker, will present on the Trenton Black River Shale Exploration in Northwest Ohio, as well as other issues of impact to the area and state at the next Fracking Expert Series in Bowling Green.
The presentation and public discussion will be held at Happy Badger, 331 N. Main St., on Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m.
FracTracker partners with citizens, organizations and institutions seeking objective and helpful information to support actions to protect public health, the environment and socioeconomic well-being.
Auch will present on the opportunities for oil and gas exploration in the Trenton Black River Shale and other considerations in Northwest Ohio, including the transportation and dumping of toxic and radioactive shale waste, solidification measures, injection of “brine,” and other associated drilling, transportation and disposal issues brought to Ohio by the industry. He will show projections for impacts on water supplies in Ohio, as well as the amount of chemicals that will be used and left underground without monitoring.
The Fracking Expert Series is designed to educate the public about the new industry in the state, support efforts to retain local control, and mobilize voters to become involved in statewide efforts to institute environmental and health protections.
Auch is also adjunct faculty at Cleveland State University in the Biology, Geology, Environ-mental Science Department.
Residents in Northwest Ohio are invited to attend this informal presentation to learn more about the impacts of fracking, ask questions and discuss ways to mitigate potential harmful effects in the area, including not only the implementation of local controls, but the support of pending legislation in Columbus that will restore important protections.
