7. that's not a fracking site, that's the injection well where they dump the toxic waste water.

Like the fracking site, it is also a very deep hole. I don't know if it is causing earthquakes or not, but this certainly is fishy.

At a minimum we should be concerned that the earthquake could cause the waste water to leak into the water table or drinking water sources. If it wasn't already, which is doubtful.

The practice described in the article has in fact already been banned in Pennsylvania because of drinking water contamination, but Ohio still allows it. And so they are trucking all this toxic fracking byproduct from Pennsylvania to these dump sites in Ohio. They say they are injecting it so deep underground that it can't get into the water supply, but nobody should believe that. Pennsylvania had enough sense to ban it, but now Pennsylvania's fracking waste is just being trucked to Ohio. I nominate right behind John Kasich's house as the next waste water injection site.
