Believe it or not, it is possible to make your frac site more environmentally friendly.
Environmentally friendly is not the first term that comes to mind when people think of fracking. In fact, it’s probably the last term people associate with the fracking industry. This bad reputation hurts companies as well as the industry as a whole, and if you’re looking to change that reputation, you’ve come to the right place. At Well Water Solutions and Rentals, Inc., we offer a variety of solutions to help you make your frac site more environmentally friendly and enjoy big savings. Here are the first three ways we can help:
#1. Waste Water Treatment
There are a number of aspects of fracking that can harm the environment, but the biggest concern that environmentalists and everyday Americans share when it comes to fracking is the water use it requires. Fracking a single well requires anywhere from two to eight million gallons of water, and some wells require even more water. There is already a global water shortage, with more than a billion people worldwide unable to access clean water, and it’s only going to get worse as climate change progresses. Fracking, which is already a huge target for environmental groups, gets the blame for a lot of this, even though other industries, like landscaping, use far more water. However, we can help you reduce the need for fresh, clean water by making it possible to reuse your waste water through waste water treatment.
#2. Eliminate the need for frac ponds.
Frac ponds are another common reason why fracking companies have a bad reputation with environmentalists and the general population. Frac ponds are essentially open-air pools where waste water is stored and allowed to evaporate into the air over time. This has obvious air contamination concerns, but these ponds are also dangerous for wildlife that confuse the dirty waste water with fresh water to drink. Our above ground storage tanks are an excellent alternative to these frac ponds, and they are much more environmentally friendly.
#3. Reduce the need for transporting water.
All of that fresh water that you need in order to frack a well has to come from somewhere, and the environmental and financial costs of transporting all of that water can get pretty hefty. Luckily, with our frac tanks and waste water treatment system, you won’t need to transport nearly as much water to your frac site, saving money and helping to reduce your environmental impact.
These are just a few ways we can help to make your frac site more environmentally friendly, and in our next blog, we’ll be going over a few more, so stay tuned.
