Recycling Water & STF Permits in Austin
Our Skilled Austin Oil & Gas Law Attorneys Can Help
Considerable amounts of water can be used for hydraulic fracturing (also known as ‘fracking’) and can be recovered when extracting oil and gas from the earth, and this water needs to be recycled rather than wasted. Fracking can consume many millions of gallons of water per year, and much of it can return to the surface as produced water that can be treated and reused. To do this requires a Stationary Treatment Facility (STF) permit, and our Austin oil and gas law attorneys can help you obtain one.
