Group ask for federal review of Ohio Injection-well program / by Tom Joseph

 (Associated Press) A coalition of environmental and community groups asked a federal watchdog office on Wednesday to investigate alleged legal violations by the state’s injection well approval program.

In a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Justice, the coalition, coordinated by the Citizens for Health, Environment & Justice, alleges that Ohio’s injection well program disproportionately impacts the state’s low-income Appalachian areas and has failed to meet a federal directive assuring those communities specific safeguards.
