Brine is radioactive waste from oil and gas production. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has confirmed tests of dangerously high levels of radium 226 and 228 in brine from oil and gas production wells. Brine is used on some Ohio roads as a deicer and dust suppressant, where it may get into the soil, can be tracked into homes, or become airborne as radioactive dust and contaminate drinking water sources and agricultural products.
