A study of drinking water in Appalachian Ohio found no evidence of natural gas contamination from oil and gas drilling, according to Science Daily. The news site says the study, whose results were published recently in the journal Environmental Monitoring and Assessment, was conducted by geologists at the University of Cincinnati. They examined drinking water in Carroll, Stark and Harrison counties, primarily rural area in eastern Ohio, where many residents rely on water from private underground water wells.
