The natural gas boom in Ohio promises an economic windfall, but it also brings a vexing problem: What to do with the copious amounts of contaminated fluids used to extract the gas from deep shale. Ohio currently requires this fluid be buried deep underground in what are called injection wells. But some communities, such as Mansfield and Broadview Heights, want to ban the waste wells. Should they have that right? Are the wells safe? Let's talk about it, Monday at 9 with host Mike McIntyre on the Sound of Ideas.

Guests

John Spon, Mansfield law director
Councilwoman Laure Quinlivan, Cincinnati
Tom Stewart, Executive Vice President, Ohio Oil and Gas Association
Don Hopey, Reporter, Pipeline, Pittsburg Post-Gazette
