THE BEACON 5
| Lett er to the Editor
To Th e Editor,
Reading some of the information regarding expanding
the injection permit for Buckeye Brine, several import-
ant points seemed overlooked. I am graduate of CHS
with professional experience in both science and real
estate, and a continuing interest in Coshocton County.
First, injecting fl uids into the rock layers lubricates
and puts pressure onto them. Th e fact that nothing has
come loose by now means simply that the slipping point
has not yet been reached. When it happens, the damage
will have been done and be irreparable. Th e many brick
buildings in Coshocton are particularly susceptible to
Second, much experience in Oklahoma shows that
injection wells do cause earthquakes when suffi cient
fl uid has been injected over time by one or more wells.
“Experts” denied this risk for years, but the data and
events have proven them wrong.
Th ird, the claim the wastes are not “hazardous” is
disingenuous, relying on a legal defi nition. If the fl uids
were not a problem for people, they would be simply
dumped or treated at the site of generation like any
other waste water. As more and more is pumped ‘down
there’, eventually something bad will happen.
I hope this letter gives the people of Coshocton some
useful information for consideration. Ohio EPA needs
to limit the total amount of wasted dumped at this site.
Refusing to issue the requested permit is a start.
