Top of Page Ensuring the safe management of wastewater, stormwater, and other wastes As the number of shale gas wells in the U.
Wastewater associated with shale gas extraction can contain high levels of salt content also called total dissolved solids total dissolved solidsThe quantity of dissolved material in a given volume of water.
The wastewater can also contain various organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals, metals, and naturally occurring radioactive materials also referred to as technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material or TENORM.
In partnership with states,we are examining the different management methods employed by industry to ensure that there are regulatory and permitting frameworks in place to provide safe and legal options for disposal of flowback and produced water.

UIC regulations Wastewater discharges to treatment facilities The Clean Water Act CWA effluent guidelines program sets national standards for industrial wastewater discharges to surface waters and municipal sewage treatment plants based on the performance of treatment and control technologies.
Effluent guidelines for on-shore oil and natural gas extraction facilities prohibit the discharge of pollutants into surface waters, except for wastewater that is of good enough quality for use in agricultural and wildlife propagation for those onshore facilities located in the continental United States and west of the 98th meridian.
Related study of private wastewater treatment facilities: We are collecting data and information related to the extent to which CWT facilities accept such wastewater, available treatment technologies and their associated costsdischarge characteristics, financial characteristics of CWT facilities, the environmental impacts of discharges from CWT facilities, and other relevant information.
Regulation of stormwater discharges from oil and natural gas construction activities Use of surface impoundments pits or ponds for storage or disposal In some cases, operators use surface storage tanks and pits to temporarily store hydraulic fracturing fluids for re-use or until arrangements are made for disposal.
In addition, other wastes are generated during the well drilling, stimulation, and production stages.
States, tribes, and some local governments have primary responsibility for adopting and implementing programs to ensure proper management of these wastes.IHS delivers unrivaled information, analytics, expertise and strategic insights to the global oil and gas industry. Customer Logins.
