$149.00 - Real and Perceived Concerns About Hydraulic Fracturing
$0.00 - Real and Perceived Concerns About Hydraulic Fracturing
In this presentation, we will review hydraulic fracturing activities with examples from south Texas and discuss both real and perceived environmental concerns along with ways in which regulatory or conservation authorities might manage their water resources. We will discuss water use and availability, outline water contamination concerns, highlight problems in determining whether hydraulic fracturing may be responsible for contamination, and give some examples of strategies groundwater conservation districts can implement to monitor their drinking water resources.
