Hearing set between D&L and Oil and Gas Commission over permit revocation

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio- The first of a two-day hearing has begun between D&L Energy as the business and the Oil and Gas Commission seeks overturn the permanent revocation of its permits.

The company's permits were revoked after employees of Hardrock Excavating allegedly dumped brine and oilfield waste down a storm drain on the company's Salt Springs Road property.

A massive cleanup was made after the disposal, which made its way to a tributary of the Mahoning River, totaling more that $1 million.

The company had requested a stay of execution until the hearing but was denied after the commission said they failed to demonstrate compelling grounds of support.

21 News reporter Michelle Nicks was in Columbus for the meeting and says it is unclear whether a decision will be made by the three panel commission tomorrow, or if they will take it under advisement.
