New Mexico is making progress! Yesterday a NM Senate bill that would restrict the use of freshwater by oil and gas operations in most cases, and assess penalties for spills, passed the Senate Conservation Committee Tuesday and proceeded through the Legislature. Senate Bill 86 is an important step toward preserving New Mexico’s most limited and needed resource – water!
The hope of many is that the oil and gas industry will start treating and recycling its wastewater instead of using fresh water in its operations. Doing this would save the state’s precious water resources for the population to use, AND, amazingly enough, would save the Oil & Gas industry a good deal of money. Especially if O&G operators would use IX Power Clean Water’s efficient and effective technology.
