10 Issues associated with well pad and access road construction Potential loss of habitat 3-15 acres for the pad Additional acres for access roads Sedimentation and erosion Visual impact

11 Issues associated with pipelines Erosion and sedimentation Soil disturbance and re-vegetation (especially on crop and pasture land) Habitat loss Forest fragmentation Stream crossings Wetlands

14 Issues associated with drilling Vehicular traffic Erosion, dust, and soil compaction Air pollution (diesel exhaust) Noise Noise and light pollution Spills (e.g., oil, fuels & lubricants)

15 Issues associated with drilling Wastes Drilling mud and drill cuttings Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) TENORM (technologically enhanced NORM) Groundwater contamination Natural gas & other naturally occurring contaminants

16 Other general concerns associated with drilling Fires and explosions Release of toxic fumes (e.g. volatile organic compounds) Fugitive methane (a potent greenhouse gas)

17 Hydraulic fracturing Worksite during blending and pumping of hydraulic fracturing fluids Photo from OccupaIonal Safety and Health AdministraIon website: well_compleion.html#pumping

18 The Hydraulic Fracturing Water Cycle From USEPA at fracturing- water- cycle#vn7

19 Issues associated with hydraulic fracturing Seismic activity Water supply for hydraulic fracturing 3-6 million gallons/well Groundwater contamination Hydraulic fracturing fluids Other naturally occurring contaminants

20 Issues associated with hydraulic fracturing Flowback and Produced water Brine Hydraulic fracturing fluids Disposal of wastewater (deep injection wells) Seismic activity Ground water contamination Accidents, spills, illegal dumping in transit

21 Environmental Impacts Data Drilling permit violations Air emission permits & compressor stations Class II injection wells Water withdrawal facilities and amounts

22 Drilling Total permit violaions issued: = 47

23 Top Ten Coun7es Issued Gas Well Air Emissions Permits (2013 and 2014) 60 Total well site air emission permits: Number of Permits Issued

24 Coun7es with More than Five Compressor Sta7ons PermiDed by Ohio EPA Number of PermiDed Sta7ons Total # compressor staions ( ) = Coun7es with one to five permided air compressor sta7ons include: Columbiana, Licking, Washington, Belmont, Holmes, Muskingum, Richland, Fairfield, Monroe, Morgan, Trumbull, Warren, Ashtabula, Athens, Hocking, Mahoning, Medina, Meigs, Ashland, Coshocton,

25 Coun7es with More than Five Water Withdrawal Facili7es in Total # faciliies: Number of facili7es Coun7es with one to five water withdrawal facili7es include: Tuscarawas, Mahoning, Coshocton, Muskingum, and Morgan

26 Top Ten Coun7es by Water Withdrawals in 2013 (millions of gallons) 300 Total water withdrawals: 1.35 billion gallons Water Withdrawals (millions of gallons)

27 Coun7es with More than Five Class II Injec7on Wells (2014) 30 Total # wells: Number of Wells Coun7es with one to five injec7on wells include: Carroll, Holmes, Wayne, Perry, Hocking, Summit, Belmont, Harrison, and Monroe

29 Summary: Likely impacts Habitat loss & fragmentation Localized noise, light, air pollution Erosion & sedimentation Spills

30 Summary: More reporting, data & research needed All of the above Drinking well contamination Impacts of water withdrawals Impacts on streams & wetlands Impacts on wildlife Casing integrity Localized air quality impacts

31 Data sources All data for numbers of oil and gas wells, drilling permit violations, and Class II injection wells was provided by the ODNR Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management. Data on water withdrawals was provided by the ODNR Division of Soil and Water Resources. Data on oil and gas well and compressor station air emission permits was provided by the OEPA Division of Air Pollution Control.
