Researchers at Cornell University studying the effects of fracking wastewater on seismicity say the injection of the substance is the likely cause for an increase in earthquakes in Oklahoma since 2009, according to a release from the university.
From 2008 to 2013, scientists found that earthquakes in Oklahoma made up close to half of all the seismic events recorded in the central and eastern United States. They found that many of those earthquakes occurred in areas of high-rate water disposal.
Researchers also determined that earthquakes occurred more than 30 kilometers from disposal wells, which beats the previous distance believed to be susceptible to extra seismicity, 5 kilometers.
Full results of the study are available in the journal Science .Read More
Three years of harsh drought have led one Texas city to significantly supplement its drinking water supply with wastewater, NPR reported .
Wichita Falls, Texas, has connected its wastewater plant to its drinking water purification plant via a 13-mile pipeline. The city will be the first in the nation where half of its drinking water is processed from wastewater.
Residents have expressed some concern regarding the so-called “toilet-to-tap” water recycling process, and the city is enacting an education campaign to clarify the science at work.
Despite strict restrictions that have led to a one-third decrease in water use, water supplies are expected to run out in two years.Read More
A study led by Duke University researchers found that radioactivity in fracking wastewater can be reduced by blending it with acid mine drainage, according to Science Daily .
By mixing the two types of wastewater in the right proportions, some of the fracking contaminants bind onto solids. The solids can then be removed prior to discharging the water into streams and other waterways.
The new process provides a way to treat hydraulic fracturing wastewater, and should help reduce acid mine drainage contamination across the the northeastern United States. Additionally, hydraulic fracturing operations can use the blending technique to recycle water, limiting the need to tap into local freshwater supplies.Read More
