A Quake Related Disposal Well Near Youngstown May Be Gone For Good
NPR - 11 months
The injection well blamed for setting off a 4.0 earthquake near Youngstown at the end of 2011 may be permanently sealed and abandoned. D&L Energy of Youngstown’ s North Star No. 1 disposal well was drilled into rock unsuited for high-pressure liquids containment. And after a series of small tremors came the significant quake. The well was shut down on the order of Ohio’s Department of Natural Resource. D&L went out of busines, and North Star 1 has been idle since. Now the current owner of the property is applying for a permit to plug it. Steve Irwin is a spokesman for ODNR. "The permit to plug the well would be good for two years. The operator would notify our local county inspector when that work was about to begin. And so we would notify the inspector and we would witness the plug stages of the well.” Irwin says ODNR is reviewing the permit request now and will make a decision in a few weeks.

Bindi, his daughter, celebrated the occasion by posting a picture on Instagram of her dad doing what he loved most — being around animals. Always in our hearts. A post shared by Bindi Irwin (@bindisueirwin) on Feb 22, 2017 at 5:44am PST “Always in our hearts,” wrote the 18-year-old in her Instagram post.
