There’s a new website called…
…but it doesn’t say anything about hydraulic fracturing. That’s a shame because, while Denton is on water restrictions, Barnett Shale gas drillers waste billions of gallons of water.
Of the metered sources in the Upper Trinity Groundwater Conservation District, Barnett Shale drillers used 1,146,598,272 gallons of water and paid .00022 cents per gallon in 2009.
We get a ticket for watering our grass at the wrong time while industry gets unlimited cheap or free water. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for conserving water, but I conservation measures should apply equally across the board to everyone.
What they don’t waste they ruin.

If you have questions or need more information about water conservation efforts in your area, please contact TRWD’s Water Conservation Coordinator Mark Olson. He can be reached at email@example.com or 817-335-2491.
I think we need to email him and suggest he add information about drilling.
