NILES — “Niles joined Weathersfield Township trustees on Wednesday, passing a resolution to ban all injection wells in the city and township. That includes the proposed site off state Route 169 next to Niles Commerce Park.
‘Niles has a lot more teeth than the township to oppose these wells,’ said Weathersfield Township Trustee Steven Gerberry. ‘They’re affected just as much as we are as the brine’s going to be travelling through the city, most likely, to get to those injection wells.’
Residents came to the council meeting armed with information about recent earthquakes centered around injection wells in Ashtabula and Mahoning Counties. But, elected officials were already on board with the ban.”
