Ohio plans test well to check underground CO2 storage
(WOUB) - Come spring, the state of Ohio will begin a nearly two-mile deep test well. The goal is to determine if the ground is suitable for permanent storage of carbon dioxide suspected of causing global warning.

The two million dollar project is called the Ohio
Stratigraphic Borehole.

The location will be chosen by the end of January from among locations in Tuscarawas, Carroll and Meigs counties. Tuscarawas and Carroll counties are located south of Canton and Meigs County is located south of Athens in southeast Ohio.
