Owner says Mosquito Lake gas well inspected seven times

Posted: Updated:

The operator of a gas well near Mosquito Lake identified as having a higher risk for pollution, tells 21 News that the well has been inspected seven times since it was drilled in 2010.

The well is located north of Millers Landing Road, approximately 2,000 yards northwest of the boat docks at  Mosquito Lake State Park.

Data obtained by the Associated Press on state drilling inspections for fiscal years 2009 to 2012 showed the well was inspected by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management as required. 

Well co-owner Matt Egnotovich of M&M Royalty, says the well falls under the higher risk category because it is located on farmland near a wetland area.  

Egnotovich says that in addition to the Bureau of Land Management, the well is in an area under the supervision of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Army Corps of Engineers.  He says the well is scheduled to be inspected again in September.

The company has drilled eight other wells around Mosquito Lake since 2001.
