WV has water problems and soon a fracking water problem will be in Ohio. I bet alot of the water from the lake will be used in the fracking process and dispose of some place else maybe, probably, could be, or we did not know where.

One of our favorite lakes. Peaceful,no hi-powered boats with buttheads at the helm. Miles of wooded shoreline. A variety of deep and shallow water and a great marina. Lte's hope it is not the end.

Is it "safe" Yes, according to the Govt. and the drillers. Sure, it must be "safe" because there are so many millions and billions of dollars involved. We can think there won't be any impact on water but we will only know for sure after all the drilling is done, if there are poisoned water supplies. Hope for the best, while everyone lines their pockets.
