Ohio EPA confirms Fowler Township spill as " production brine"

Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency says a liquid that spilled on a Fowler Township road nearly two weeks ago is not harmful to the environment.

A group opposed to a gas drilling process known as fracking questioned the Trumbull County Commissioners about accuracy of the EPA's tests.

An Ohio EPA spokesman tells 21 News that the testing is reliable. He identifies the substance as production brine; a product he says is similar to what is used on roadways to keep them from freezing in the winter.
