Air Quality Results are in from Study in Ohio’s Shale Gas Region


The results from the initial stationary air sampling study performed by the University of Cincinnati and Oregon State University have been published.  The study was conducted about a year ago near shale gas operations in Carroll and Columbiana Counties to gain an understanding of whether these industrial activities have a significant impact on air quality. 


Erin Haynes, DrPH from the University of Cincinnati and Diana Rohlman, PhD from Oregon State University, will be presenting an overview of the study’s results at Carroll Concerned Citizen’s May 7 meeting. The meeting will be held at the Church of Christ – Christian Disciples located at 353 Moody Ave. Carrollton.  It begins at 7pm and is free and open to the public.


“There are an increasing number of studies in the news these days about shale gas operations’ impact on air quality and we are glad to see that Ohio’s shale boom epicenter is part of just such a study,” said Paul Feezel the group’s chair.  “Carroll County counts excellent air quality as one of its many quality of life treasures and it is important to know whether changes are occurring.”
