What about using Wastewater to Frack Texas Gas Wells Instead of Fresh Water?

Interesting, although frankly, reading this article wants me to BOIL all my water first before drinking. heh.

One new, potentially large user of direct-reuse wastewater could materialize in the Barnett Shale drilling industry.

Phillips said the City of Weatherford is commissioned a study designed to assess the feasibility of using wastewater as a substitute for freshwater in the fracturing phase of a gas well.

Most reports suggest Barnett wells require between three and six million gallons of fresh water to reach completion and the city of Weatherford’s wastewater treatment plant is estimated to produce around 2.5 million gallons of effluent per day.

Phillips said Cleburne and Fort Worth are also considering the drilling application for wastewater as well.

Reports of domestic water wells going dry near East-Parker-County towns like Willow Park and Aledo have been superficially linked with high-production water wells drilled to provide water for mineral production.
