Ohio sets drilling buffer for campgrounds, other attractions
By Kelly Cauthorn @ 10:11 AM :: ::
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- According to documents state officials released yesterday, drilling companies that want to tap the oil and gas buried under Ohio's state parks would have to sign a mineral-rights lease and stay at least 300 feet from campgrounds and other attractions, reports The Columbus Dispatch.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the proposed leases and an 89-page list of “best management practices” are the result of a September law that opened the state parks for drilling.
Among the terms for drillers released yesterday, drillers could not come within 300 feet of camping areas, fire towers, sites of “historic or archaeological value” or “ high quality” streams and lakes, reports the Columbus Dispatch.
