Regis the Feral cat says “don’t frack up our drinking water with reckless permit process”.
West of the 98th meridian
frackers in Texas can just treat and release
those produced waters like a feral cat!
Additionally, stripper wells are afforded the least costly disposal methods too!
Texas Sharon blogged it best back in 2007….
…fast forward just under 10 yrs later, still no changes in NORM testing here in Texas for O&G waste waters….
Aside from NORM concerns, treating produced waters per geochemists is advised in finding NON-chemical ways so as to avoid (carcinogenic) disinfection by-products…
Treat & Release = RRC FAIL…the Feral Cat way!!
HELP Lon Burnam, candidate for the Railroad Commission!
For now the frackers prefer cheap injection wells, but once the frackquakes catch on in Texas…they may just start the feral treat & release process!
