An analytical assessment of the radioactive content exceeds that permitted for drinking water. Newly released documents by the Ohio Department of Environmental Resources (ODNR) support numerous recent scientific studies, since April of 2017 ODNR has been testing ‘brine’ from conventional and horizontal oil/gas wells as well as brine coming to Ohio from out of state wells. Results revealed that all sources of waste contain high levels of Radium-226 and Radium-228, both cancer-inducing forms of radioactivity. ODNR data also included one test performed on wastewater from a Pennsylvania conventional well, which showed a radioactivity level of 3361 pico curies/liter— 672 times the EPA limit for safe drinking water.
