Fracking Interference The process of natural gas extraction commonly known has fracking has been a boon for the steel pipe industry and those with land to lease. But the wastewater byproduct from fracking -- disposed of through injection into underground wells -- is causing environmental fears. After several recent minor earthquakes near a Youngstown-area well, Ohio has suspended injections, which included wastewater shipped in from Pennsylvania. We'll revisit the fracking debate, Wednesday at 9.
