Plans using a synthetic foam, a passive wetland and even sugarcane are the latest that members of the Animas River Stakeholders Group are considering in the battle against toxic waste coming from abandoned hardrock mines.
The oil and gas industry is booming in Colorado and so is the conflict over hydraulic fracturing.
Earth, “the blue planet,” has a lot of water. Most of the planet’s surface is covered with it. But less than 5 percent of that water is fresh, and much of that is locked up in ice sheets or inconveniently far underground.
October 16, 2013--Shell says it can produce oil shale with a lot less water (Grand Junction Sentinel)
It could require less than half a barrel of water to buoy up a barrel of oil from the high desert of the west, Shell Oil Co. said today. One barrel of oil could be produced from oil shale for as little as a third of a barrel of water, Tom Fowler, commercial lead for the Shell project, said at the 33rd Oil Shale symposium at Colorado School of Mines.
The Longmont Times reported in July that a landmark Department of Energy (DOE) study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, shows no evidence that chemicals from the natural gas drilling process are linked with contami
Another crack in the “fracking is safe” story for the industry to address. You know that fracking thing? For the uninitiated, hydraulic fracturing (a.k.a. fracking) is the technique of injecting water, sand and chemicals at high pressures into shale and other tight rock formations to release the fuel trapped inside.
Dolores is drawing up a emergency action plan to handle potential pollution sources into the Dolores River. The watershed protection plan is a non-binding education effort designed to prevent risks to the region's water supply.
August 28, 2013--Using a form of 'ice that burns' to make potable water from oil and gas production (Science Daily)
In the midst of an intensifying global water crisis, scientists are reporting development of a more economical way to use one form of the "ice that burns" to turn very salty wastewater from fracking and other oil and gas production methods into water for drinking and irrigation.
Crews battled Sunday to keep a massive wildfire from potentially closing this city's main water supply, a reservoir high in the Sierra Nevada whose water could become temporarily unusable because of ash from the inferno. Since breaking out Aug.
Good deeds should go unpunished. That is the motivation behind new bipartisan legislation jointly introduced on Thursday, Aug.
