The Morgan County Emergency Management Agency has been dealing with a well leak since Sunday. It appears drilling mud from the bit has been leaking.  Emergency crews are trying to contain the leak that apparently reached Meigs creek.  Four area households have been evacuated from their property which is south of McConnelsville. The Ohio E-P-A is also on the scene investigating the incident and is working with the company to contain the leak and get it cleaned up. The E-P-A says the company acted quickly to respond to the issue.
