Water request: Denied

LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) — Lisbon Village Council has turned down a request by a drilling company to use Willow Grove Park to take water from the Little Beaver Creek for fracking a nearby well.

According to our print partners at the Salem News, Hilcorp Energy has a permit to drill a horizontal well on the Ramsey farm just west of the village in Center Township.

Hilcorp wanted to run a pipeline from the creek and across the park to the well site.

The proposed lease price was for 300 feet at $3 a foot – or a one-time fee of $900.
