Tuscarawas River

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission says the company building the Rover and Nexus natural gas pipelines across northern Ohio may resume drilling under the Tuscarawas River, where mud and fluid has been spilled twice in the last two years.

Officials from the company building twin high-pressure natural gas pipelines across northern Ohio have told federal regulators sabotage or leaky equipment caused drilling slurry to become contaminated while cleaning a spill near the Tuscarawas River.

Stark County parks officials say work will begin later this year to close a gap in the Ohio-and-Erie Canal Towpath Trail.
