Concerned citizens say, regarding the growing number of local fracking waste injection wells:  Enough is Enough!  
A citizen-held, town hall-style, informational, open-to-the-public meeting about fracking waste injection wells will take place on Friday, May 10, 2019 in Brookfield, Ohio starting at 7 PM 

       Here we go again?  
       Yet another local community – Coitsville - joins Brookfield and Hubbard Township, Ohio - in facing the possible operation of a toxic fracking waste injection well planned to be located way too near family homes, businesses, waterways, and government buildings in a populated area.
       Unfortunately, Ohio seems to have become a preferred location for toxic waste “disposal.”
       What community could be next in line for being forced to have a waste injection well – against many residents’ and elected officials’ opposition?
       A citizen town hall-style meeting to be held on Friday, May 10, 2019 at 7 PM to 9:30 PM  at the Brookfield Ohio Fire Hall (social hall), at 774 State Route 7 NE, Brookfield, Ohio 44403 will address fracking waste injection wells, in general, and new toxic waste injection wells proposed for Brookfield, Hubbard Township, and Coitsville, Ohio.  Towns with operating injection wells include North Lima, Vienna, Fowler, Torch, and more.
       At the beginning of the Brookfield meeting, distinguished speakers will provide information about injection wells, hazardous waste, and other relevant issues. Then the floor will be opened to the public and media for comments, questions, and answers.   
       Confirmed speakers are:
Battalion Chief of the Youngstown Fire Department, Silverio Caggiano, who has served for 37 years with the fire department and who serves on numerous hazardous materials technical advisory committees for the state.  Chief Caggiano also has 27 years as a hazardous materials/ WMD Specialist.
Hubbard Township Trustee Rick Hernandez, Jr.
Teresa Mills, Executive Director of the Buckeye Environmental Network (BEN) and Community Organizer for the Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ).   
       The meeting is free and open to the public. All media are urged to please attend.
       Many concerned citizens believe that injection wells pose unacceptable risks to public health, safety, welfare, and the environment.  Injection wells have been linked to man-made earthquakes, spills, or pollution that negatively impact water, air, and land.  
       Concerned citizens, including those in Mahoning and Trumbull Counties, say:  Enough is enough!  They say Ohio and surrounding areas cannot be used as toxic fracking waste dumps.   Residents say this is too much, and this is unacceptable; the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) must stop this in order to protect public health, safety, and welfare of our neighborhoods.  
       This is especially true since there have already been many man-made earthquakes linked to injection wells or fracking in our region.  No one knows where all of the faults might lie that could lead to more induced seismicity. It is also not known how large in magnitude potential induced quakes might be.  Oklahoma has experienced man-made earthquakes that scientists have linked to injection wells, including a magnitude 5.7 in the year 2011 and a magnitude 5.8 in 2016.[i] 
       Furthermore, the 2015 spill related to injection wells in Vienna, Ohio and the magnitude 4.0 Youngstown earthquake of 2011 linked to the Northstar One injection well are still fresh in many residents’ minds.  This region cannot afford another potential injection well – related fiasco that threatens water, air, and land.
       Groups helping to coordinate the Brookfield town hall – style meeting are Frackfree America National Coalition (FANC), based in Youngstown, Ohio (www.frackfreeamerica.org ) and  Buckeye Environmental Network (BEN)  (www.buckeyeenvironmentalnetwork.org ).
       The groups, FANC and BEN, believe based upon science and experience, that injection is inherently unsafe and that no amount of regulation can make it safe, especially in a highly populated, earthquake-prone area where Hubbard Township and Brookfield are located and where there are abandoned coal mines.

Help Ohio Residents Legal Fund To Stop Fracking Waste Injection Well Now!

Residents of Brookfield, Ohio and the surrounding area have been lawfully opposing five (yes,  five!) proposed toxic fracking waste injection wells planned to be constructed and operated way too near family homes, a stream,  businesses, and government buildings in a region that we believe is now man-made earthquake-prone and is an abandoned coal mine area.

Will you please help us stop this insanity? Please donate if able and please share our GoFundMe, thank you!

Gloria Douglas is a grandmother who has lived in her beloved Wyngate Manor home for 31years. Gloria calls it her “forever-home” because she can’t imagine ever having to leave the home she’s lovingly cared for and lived in all these years.[1]

Gloria’s home is way too close to waste injection well number five – the one we are currently trying to lawfully stop.[2] Her home is in the below image which is courtesy of Ted Auch, Great Lakes Program Coordinator, The Fractracker Alliance, www.fractracker.org


There are hundreds of homes with families living nearby in Brookfield.  It is tragic and astonishing that this heavy industrial injection well operation could even happen to the hundreds of people who live so close to this injection well.

“Remembering the Earthquakes”:  Supporters of Frackfree America National Coalition, based in Youngstown, Ohio, will attend a prayer service conducted by Reverend Monica Beasley-Martin to commemorate the upcoming seventh anniversary of the now-famous December 31, 2011 Youngstown, Ohio, magnitude 4.0, man-made earthquake linked to a fracking waste injection well.
Concerned citizens will gather for the prayer on public property on Thursday, December 27, 2018, at 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM at the gazebo on the village green at Brookfield Center, Brookfield, Ohio 44403

       With yet another fracking waste injection well being proposed for our region in Hubbard Township this year, in addition to the five (yes-five!) proposed injection wells for Brookfield, Ohio, concerned citizens are even more concerned about the public health, safety, and well-being of our neighborhoods and homes.  Concerned citizens say that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) must halt the injection wells since they pose an unacceptable risk to water, air, and land, including potential injection-well related, man-made earthquakes.  
       Ohio cannot be used as a toxic fracking waste dumping ground, they say.
       Therefore, supporters of  Frackfree America National Coalition, (FANC) based in Youngstown, Ohio, will attend a prayer service conducted by Reverend Monica Beasley-Martin, of Defenders of the Earth Outreach Mission, to commemorate the upcoming seventh anniversary of the now-famous December 31, 2011 Youngstown, Ohio, magnitude 4.0,  man-made earthquake linked to a fracking waste injection well.[1]
       Concerned citizens will gather for the prayer on public property on Thursday, December 27, 2018, at 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM at the gazebo on the village green at Brookfield Center, Brookfield, Ohio 44403 at 379 Ohio Route 7.
       All media and the public are invited to attend.
       The Facebook Event page can be viewed at:   https://www.facebook.com/events/614959222257409/
       A focus of the event will be calling for ODNR to halt the injection wells to protect public health and safety, and for ODNR to keep the media and the public immediately notified of any potential earthquakes possibly due to injection. This would include all potential quakes, even those below magnitude 1.0.   Transparency is of the utmost importance, groups say.
       For more information about Brookfield and our region, injection wells, and man-made earthquakes and more, please see the comment/ objection to the proposed Brookfield injection wells submitted to ODNR on December 25, 2017:

Citizens To Hold Townhall-style Meeting on NE Ohio Frackig Waste Injection Wells Sept 27

Citizens will hold an anti-injection well public townhall-style meeting in Brookfield, Ohio on Thursday, September 27, 2018,  at 7 PM to 9:30 PM,  to discuss proposed fracking waste injection wells planned to be sited way too near family homes, businesses, government buildings and important waterways. 
       Building upon the success of a very well-attended August meeting, citizens will hold another public town hall-style meeting on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 7 PM to 9:30 PM at the Brookfield Ohio Fire Hall (social hall), at 774 State Route 7 NE, Brookfield, Ohio 44403.  There will be a public discussion about five proposed Brookfield fracking waste injection wells and also a new toxic waste injection well proposed for Hubbard Township, Ohio.

A petition opposing the proposed Hubbard Township injection well will be available for attendees to sign.

        These wells are planned to be sited way too near family homes, businesses, government buildings, and important waterways. This is unacceptable, say citizens.
       Meeting organizers are reaching out to invite and involve residents from Brookfield, Hubbard, Hubbard Township, Vienna, North Lima, and the entire region, including people in Pennsylvania. All elected and public officials and candidates are also invited. The meeting is free and open to the public. All media are urged to please attend.

       Meeting organizers say that Ohio cannot be used as a toxic waste dumping ground.
       Injection well-related spills and releases that result in water contamination can occur such as the release in Vienna, Ohio in 2015 that destroyed two wetlands and a pond.  Groups say injection wells, such as the ones proposed for Brookfield and Hubbard Township, pose unacceptable risks of potential adverse impacts to air, water, and land. They also pose unacceptable risks of more man-made earthquakes, like the 2011 magnitude 4.0 Youngstown injection well-linked quake, in an already earthquake-prone region where abandoned coal mines exist.
       Citizens are calling for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) to be proactive and to immediately deny the injection well permits and revoke those that are already issued in order to protect the public interest, the environment, and the public health, safety, and welfare.
       Groups stress that ODNR must not force families, individuals, and communities to accommodate and adjust to the unfair and risky placement of toxic waste injection wells located practically in some peoples’ backyards. Citizens have private property rights and rights to the protection of public health and safety, as well, that must not be violated by the unwise siting of injection wells so near family homes, important waterways, and other vulnerable structures.

       Groups helping to coordinate the September 27th meeting are Brookfield Citizens Against Injection Wells (BCAIW)  ( https://stopfrackingwasteneohio.blogspot.com/  )    Frackfree America National Coalition (FANC), based in Youngstown, Ohio (www.frackfreeamerica.org ) and  Buckeye Environmental Network (BEN) (www.buckeyeenvironmentalnetwork.org ).
         The groups, FANC and BEN, believe based upon science and experience, that injection is inherently unsafe and that no amount of regulation can make it safe, especially in a highly populated, earthquake-prone area where Hubbard Township and Brookfield are located and where there are abandoned coal mines.

Citizen Townhall in Hubbard, Ohio August 30, 2018 on Fracking Waste Injection Wells

 A town hall-style, informational, open-to-the-public meeting about fracking waste injection wells is to be held on Thursday, August 30, 2018 in Hubbard, Ohio 
       A citizen town hall-style meeting to be held on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at 7 PM to 9:30 PM at the Brentford House in Hubbard, Ohio (more details below) will address fracking waste injection wells, in general, and also a new toxic waste injection well proposed for Hubbard Township, Ohio planned to be sited way too near family homes, businesses, government buildings and an important waterway.  Five proposed Brookfield, Ohio injection wells and North Lima and Vienna, Ohio injection wells will also be discussed.

       Astonishingly, despite Trumbull County having numerous waste injection wells already, yet another toxic waste injection well is being proposed for a highly populated area in Hubbard Township, Ohio.  This is unacceptable. Groups opposing injection wells say this is an issue for the entire region and the state, especially since scientists have linked injection wells to man-made earthquakes, even as large as a magnitude 5.7 quake that occurred in Oklahoma in 2011.

       There are also unacceptable risks to water posed by injection wells.  Spills and releases that result in water contamination have occurred such as the release in Vienna, Ohio in 2015 that destroyed two wetlands and a pond.  Groups say injection wells, such as the one proposed for Hubbard Township, pose unacceptable risks of adverse impacts to air, water, and land.  They say Ohio cannot be used as a toxic waste dumping ground.  

       Concerned Hubbard citizens, their allies, and groups opposing injection wells will hold a town hall-style, informational public meeting on Thursday, August 30, 2018  at 7 PM to 9:30 PM at the Brentford House , at 737 Myron Street, Hubbard, Ohio, 44425 to provide information and to let the community voice their concerns and suggestions regarding lawfully halting fracking waste injection wells.  

       The meeting is free and open to the public. All media are urged to please attend.

       At the beginning of the meeting, distinguished speakers will provide information about injection wells, hazardous waste, and other relevant issues. Then the floor will be opened to the public and media for comments, questions, and answers.  
       Confirmed speakers are:
  • Battalion Chief of the Youngstown Fire Department, Silverio Caggiano, who has served for 37 years with the fire department and who serves on numerous hazardous materials technical advisory committees for the state.  Chief Caggiano also has 27 years as a hazardous materials/ WMD Specialist.
  • Hubbard Township Trustee Rick Hernandez, Jr.
  • Teresa Mills, Executive Director of the Buckeye Environmental Network (BEN) and Community Organizer for the Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ).   
       Town hall organizers say that at the meeting, attendees can get up-to-date information on the status of the proposed injection wells, sign the citizen petition to oppose the proposed Hubbard Township injection well, and voice their concerns, experiences, and expertise regarding the wells.
       Saying that communities need to stick together in their opposition to the injection wells, meeting organizers are reaching out to invite and involve  residents from Hubbard, Vienna, Brookfield, North Lima and the entire region, including people in Pennsylvania. All are urged to attend.
       Groups helping to coordinate the meeting are Citizens Against Injection Wells – Hubbard Twp., Frackfree America National Coalition (FANC), based in Youngstown, Ohio (www.frackfreeamerica.org ) and  Buckeye Environmental Network (www.buckeyeenvironmentalnetwork.org ).
       The groups, FANC and BEN, believe based upon science and experience, that injection is inherently unsafe and that no amount of regulation can make it safe, especially in a highly populated, earthquake-prone area where Hubbard Township and Brookfield are located and where there are abandoned coal mines.

August 10, 2018 UPDATE on "
TOXIC WASTE WELL PROPOSALfrom Hubbard Twp. Board of Trustees" (original posted at https://www.facebook.com/HubbardTownshipPolice/posts/1883458918390693 ) :
The Township received notification that the ODNR has received the board's objection to the placement of a waste injection well right in the middle of the I-80 interchange area of the Township. The State did not, however, indicate that they would hold a public hearing on the issue in the Hubbard Community prior to considering the proposal by Bobcat Energy Hubbard LLC and NexLev. The Township is continuing to request that local citizens contact Governor Kasich, Senator O’Brien, and State Representative Glenn Holmes as soon as possible.
In 2012 when this very same well on the very same parcel of land was proposed by D&L/Lupo and NexLev/Yasechko, Governor Kasich stepped in and halted the project along with another Kleese/KDA well on Hibler Lane in the Township.
I would suggest that Governor Kasich has the power of his executive order and he could again end this environmental disaster before it is too late. I would suggest that efforts should be directed to the Governor’s office for a quick solution to this pressing issue for Hubbard Township and Trumbull County in general.
As far as the petitions go, it is our intent to present them to the ODNR “if” they hold a public hearing in the Hubbard community that the Trustees have requested. Petitions are at the Township Administration Building in the town hall entry way and at the Fuel Desk at Truck World Mall. Please, this is our community. We can make a difference if we get the community’s support to reject this proposal for our community. If not for yourself, how about the future generations that will still be here after BOBCAT and NEXLEV are gone? Remember Love Canal, New York when Hooker Chemical told the residents “not to worry” it’s buried deep underground, what could happen? We all know what happened there…let’s not let it happen here. Please act now. Thank you.
