State Rep. Hagan calls for fracking wastewater answers from Governor, ODNR

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - State Representative Bob Hagan is calling for answers on fracking wastewater in a letter he wrote to Governor John Kasich and ODNR's director Jim Zehringer.

Hagan says in the letter that based on the results of testing done by scientist Dr. Benjamin Stout of Wheeling Jesuit University, brine water should be classified as hazardous material and treated as such.

The tests were done on brine water from the Hazel Ginsburg well in Athens County.

In the letter, Hagan urges ODNR to examine the testing results and make public ODNR's inspection process for such wells.
