The Original Grassroots Effort for Ohio
In 2011 NEOGAP moved to www.ohiogasdrilling.com to host the continued grassroots mission. We continue today under POGCO- People's Oil & Gas Collaborative- Ohio. Please visit our new website for current information.
MISSION: NEOGAP is a resource for the citizens by the citizens who are dealing with oil and gas development. NEOGAP's multi-tiered approach involves people who are directly affected by the impacts of oil and gas development working in a bipartisan effort for strong reforms and better industry practices. We are not anti-oil/gas drilling/production, rather we believe these industrial activities need to occur in a way which does not risk public health and safety nor violate individual civil or property rights. We utilize media, public education, and community organizing in our efforts to improve the way oil and gas development occurs over all of Ohio.
Regulation Lax as Gas Wells’ Tainted Water Hits Rivers
The American landscape is dotted with hundreds of thousands of new wells and drilling rigs, as the country scrambles to tap into this century’s gold rush — for natural gas.
But the relatively new drilling method — known as high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing, or hydrofracking — carries significant environmental risks.
While the existence of the toxic wastes has been reported, thousands of internal documents obtained by The New York Times from the Environmental Protection Agency, state regulators and drillers show that the dangers to the environment and health are greater than previously understood.

"Despite industry rhetoric to the contrary, the environmental impacts of industrial gas drilling are real and indisputable. As this report demonstrates, state and federal regulators are documenting thousands of incidents across the country where industrial gas drilling operations are the known or suspected cause of significant environmental contamination."- Riverkeeper
