There are currently 13 active injection wells in our Columbus watershed area taking millions of gallons of toxic, radioactive frack waste. In addition, there is a site in Columbus that has been sanctioned by the Ohio EPA to accept drill cuttings (solid frack waste). Columbus Community Bill of Rights is circulating a city charter amendment that asserts a rights to clean water, air, and soil and prohibits fossil fuel extraction and related activities, especially the deposit and transportation of frack waste, and the sitting of frack infrastructure in Columbus.
