In Ohio, a group of demonstrators blocked access on Monday to a natural gas well in Trumbull County used for the dumping of waste from the drilling practice of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. The protesters rallied to call for increased testing and monitoring of waste water from fracking sites after a spill in a residential area earlier this month. At least three people were detained in Monday’s action.
