The 24-member Eagle Ford Task Force released a report Tuesday that answered the controversial question of whether there’s enough water available for hydraulic fracturing and other uses such as agricultural. Yes, there is.
The task force “concluded that the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer appears to contain sufficient water resources to support oil and gas drilling” in the Eagle Ford, including for hydraulic fracturing, along with other uses.
Most of the report, however, underscored the economic benefits of the shale play, outlined “best industry practices” and offered a handful of suggestions to deal with the boom’s oil-and-gas downside.
Considering less than 7/10 of a percent of the available water is used for fracking STATE WIDE – these environmentalists should move on to their load of malarkey.
