Oil and Natural Gas Drilling




Drilling and Hydraulic Fracturing ("fracking") for oil and natural gas is a hot topic in Ohio these days.  Although the Medina County Health Department is not involved in the regulation of these operations, we recognize the concerns of the public and the need to be well-informed. 

*** If you have a private water well and would like to know more about water quality testing, please take a look at this
"Water Well Sampling Before Oil and Gas Drilling" Informational Packet. ***
