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. 

The commission also says Energy Transfer Partners must test groundwater near the site. Regulators ordered a drilling stoppage in January.
