Check out Ecowatch today for featured coverage of our Athens rally.
And coverage of statewide petition to EPA in Bloomberg Businessweek. Note re Bloomberg discussion of legislative proposals: natural radioactivity is not being addressed, thus exempting most frack waste.

Read the petition to US EPA filed on our behalf by Teresa Mills here. Written on behalf of all Ohio citizens by Teresa Mills, of Center for Health, Environment and Justice and Buckeye Forest Council, the petition calls on USEPA to do a full audit of Ohio’s underground injection control program and to suspend Ohio’s primacy, or right to control the progam and injection well permitting. The letter is signed by over two hundred organizations and individuals who are saying, ‘Enough is enough. Ohio Department of Natural Resources is not doing its job!’
