I know some folks in the Haynesville shale area who sure could use some good, clean fresh water. Their water got contaminated by an injection/disposal well years ago and it’s still not safe to drink. I attended a community meeting with the EPA last July. When they asked people with cancer to raise their hands, it was sickening how many hands went up.
Heckmann Corporation Begins Fresh Water Delivery by Pipeline in the Haynesville Shale Area
The pipeline is 40 miles long and will move 60,000 barrels a day from the Red River and the Sabine River. 60,000 barrels = 2, 520,000 gallons
A person uses between 80 to 100 gallons a day but to make it easy we’ll use the higher figure. The pipeline will supply enough water every day for 25,200 people!
WAIT! This water is not for people!
This water is not for the people with contaminated water. This water is for fracking the Haynesville Shale gas wells. This water is for The Contaminators!
6.3 million gallons of fresh water are needed for each drilled frac well in the Haynesville Shale area.

Seems the beast is thirsty.
“The pipeline to move up to 200,000 acre-feet of water a year could sustain water-intensive hydraulic-fracturing operations in Wyoming and Colorado, Million said.”
Lori Wilson says
my mother lives within miles of the fracking what will become of her well, her drinking and cooking water? Its not right not to get the permission from those who will also be affected?
Please urge your mother to get a baseline water test immediately! Click on the Shale Survival tab at the top of this website for information.
