Fracking and drinking water forum

Over 230 Class-II injection wells in Eastern Ohio receive hydraulic fracking waste, mostly trucked from other states. In 2014 these wells received over one billion gallons of highly toxic fracking material, including radioactive waste. Are these wells properly maintained and isolated from drinking water?
