The omnibus House Bill 59, passed by the Ohio state legislature in 2013. This short extract of that massive 699-page bill deals with new procedures for how Ohio's Oil & Gas drillers, including Utica Shale drillers, must handle potentially radioactive substances created during the drilling process. TENORM means Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material and is material that exists deep below the earth's surface (naturally occurring) that is brought to the surface during drilling operations. The new rules were developed to protect the environment from becoming contaminated.
