The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has lifted its temporary delay on approving permit applications for disposal wells in Ohio.  The Columbus Dispatch reports that ODNR has approved four disposal wells in Athens, Portage and Washington counties.  Thirty additional disposal well applications remain pending.  ODNR originally stayed its review of disposal well applications due to earthquakes.  But new safety rules, effective October 1, 2012, will likely prevent similar problems going forward.
