Join the Concerned Ohio River Residents and OVEC for a community meeting on January 21 from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Storing explosive gases under the Ohio River is unacceptable.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is currently considering a permit application to construct the Mountaineer natural gas liquids (NGL) storage facility 2.5 miles from Clarington, OH, along Rt. 7 in Salem Township.

The facility would store up to 3.25 million barrels of highly flammable, explosive natural gas liquids (NGLs) in underground caverns adjacent to and potentially beneath the Ohio River and just one mile from Clarington’s drinking water wells, posing a significant threat to our region’s public health and natural resources.

Join us this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom to learn more about the risks posed by the Mountaineer NGL storage facility and what you can do to help stop it.

It’s time to get the facts that the industry won’t tell us. Hear from advocates, experts, and legal professionals about the risks associated with the Mountaineer NGL Storage facility and what you can do to stop it.

 RSVP Here 

Please also sign our petition to the ODNR regarding this permit.

  1. Are you planning other meetings? I saw your ad in the Cincinnati Enquirer 1/24/21. Very alarming.

    1. Hi, Susan! We’re not planning another community meeting on this issue between now and the deadline to submit public comments to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) on Feb. 6. However, we highly encourage anyone who is concerned about this development to submit a comment. We’ve provided a form letter for your convenience, but our legal team recommends personalizing your communication as much as possible. You can also view and share a recording of our meeting on Jan. 21 at this link. Please email us at info@ohvec.org if you have any further questions or are looking for additional ways to get involved. Thank you!
