Does the city own the Utica mineral rights under the section of property?

Since all the other property owners in that area are leasing their land (including the county), Marietta will have a difficult time not doing so. In the end it is a moot point since horizontal fracking can occur from several miles away in all directions.

I still want to see it banned though. It's an environmental disaster waiting to happen in the MOV

What ever is put on or in the ground makes it way to our underground Aquifers, Rivers, Lakes and the Oceans. Every Scientist on Earth knows this and most all that have made it to eighth grade in school.

Experiences like Fort Worth’s are a key reason communities across the U.S. and the world have mobilized to place bans or moratoria on fracking. Four Colorado cities passed fracking bans in November by popular vote, in spite of drilling industry campaigns against the initiatives. Their ultimate success is uncertain, as the Colorado gas industry is suing to try and block three of the four, a battle that will likely end in the state Supreme Court, but towns in New York and Pennsylvania, and counties in New Mexico and Hawaii maintain theirs.

Dallas’ fracking ordinance is being considered just as researchers from Southern Methodist University linked a series of Texas earthquakes to injection of fracking wastewater into the ground. The Fort Worth Basin hadn’t experienced an earthquake prior to 2008, but 2009 and 2010 saw over 50 occur.

Right next door to Fort Worth, the Dallas city council is considering letting fracking start up in town with a vote likely to come next week, capping a three-year fight over the future of fracking in the city. Until recently, Dallas had rejected attempts to frack in town, but that stance seems to be over. Current debate is over the distance required between wells and homes or wells and other wells: 1,500 feet or 1,000.

Residents have been sickened by vapors from drilling operations, found their neighborhoods suddenly ruined by noise and fumes, and had their water sucked up by drilling operations in the middle of severe drought. Five sites were found in 2011 to be emitting pollution above state limits, according to a studycommissioned by the Fort Worth City Council, and most of the 388 sites studied released visible emissions.

“Fort Worth has been fracked to capacity,” resident Don Young told Julie Dermansky for the DeSmog Blog. “There is no turning back. Some days the air is so bad you can’t see downtown.”

Josh you still haven't provided the information about Cambridge banning fracking within the city limits. Can you direct us to that information since I can't find it anywhere?

To the person(s) who disagree with my last post on Coal slurry spill in Winifrede, WV., I do want to apologize that an actual documented fact distorts your closed mindset. Your disagree comment made me realize that something that doesn't fit the agenda can't be true. Henceforth, I shall post comments on Faux News where truth doesn't matter.

For What's Worth From WVVA Television News....

Department of Environmental spokesman Tom Aluise says an unknown amount of coal slurry spilled into Fields Creek early Tuesday morning when a slurry line ruptured at the Kanawha Eagle Prep plant near Winifrede.

Aluise says the company told DEP that the plant uses a frothing chemical called Flomin 110-C that contains the chemical MCHM.

I have that report..in mine the wording is as follows"isotopes were identified that NORMALLY are found in deeper deposits containing" its all blah blah from there.Ask,you seem passionate about this.Please look at the geologic column and a hard look at the Big Lime and go WAY down the column to the Marc.Im not saying impossible.But not probable certainly.I do think its funny how the professors from the college have so much to say about this.I NEVER run into them on the jobs..and the so called educated I do work with are lucky to find their cars in the parking lot..that you had to give them a ride to.
