Fracking waste well won't come to Barnesville

Columbus company cites costs for decision to pull out

BARNESVILLE, Ohio - A proposed fracking waste site will not be coming to Barnesville after the company in charge of the project pulled out, citing costs.

On Thursday, Columbus-based EnerGREEN360 said in a press release that the Barnesville site "did not fit their current business model due to site costs." CEO Rob Smith said he will continue to look for other sites in the area that are privately owned, and will try to make a deal with those property owners.

EnerGREEN360 thanked the Belmont County Port Authority for their time and energy in evaluating the pending lease agreement.

Many Barnesville residents had fought the proposal, saying they were concerned that they didn't know what could be in the waste and how it could affect their families or their property. Some heated discussions took place during a meeting in May, as residents voiced concerns.
