WHEELING -

Concerned residents of Warwood attended the Wheeling Board of Zoning Appeals Commission to voice opposition to GreenHunter's plans to build a frack water storage facility.

Most residents were concerned that the plant's water would leak into the ground and cause contamination.  They also say they're concerned about dust prevention and bringing toxic and radioactive materials into the neighborhood.

But GreenHunter's vice president, John Jack, told the board  the water they handle is a non-hazardous material and residents needed more information in what his company is doing.
