Martins Ferry sees no evidence of cleanup at Austin Master Serv.

By meerna Jun12,2024

We have been following and reporting on the drama surrounding Austin Master Services (AMS), a radiological waste management solutions company in Martins Ferry (Belmont County, Ohio), located near the Ohio River, since the Ohio Attorney General filed criminal charges against the company in March (see our AMS stories here). AMS stores at least 10,000 tons of fracking waste (low radioactivity cuttings) at the facility. The facility is rated and approved for a load capacity of 600 tons. In March, Ohio AG Dave Yost asked the Belmont County Court of Common Pleas to block AMS from accepting more waste and order it to clean up and abide by its assessments. According to Martins Ferry Mayor John Davies, who addressed the city council last Wednesday, nothing has been done so far.
