The Texas Water Journal has published a new article in Volume 12, titled Groundwater Withdrawals Associated with Oil and Gas Production from Water Supply Aquifers in Texas: Implications for Water Management Practices, by Katie Coeckelenbergh, Dorina Murgulet, Kristine Uhlman and Chris Vickers.
The demand for water is continuing to increase as population and industry grow. According to the article abstract, the Natural Resources Defense Council indicated that Texas is at “extreme risk” for the implementation of sustainable water management practices, especially because groundwater is the supplier of much of the state’s freshwater. This study assesses groundwater conservation practices in association with oil and gas production from the surrounding areas of the Carrizo-Wilcox formation in Texas.
