WASTE & WASTEWATER FACILITIES

July 2009 - June 2010 - Contained in the first gas well production reports released by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is a listing of wastewater facilities used for Marcellus Shale gas well wastewaters.

Each Marcellus gas well can produce one million gallons of flowback or produced water. This wastewater is placed in impoundment dams or trucked-off to wastewater facilities. Most treatment processes being used in 2010 were minimal at best, with many of the processes still focused on dilution.
 
 

Wastewater high in TDS (total dissolved solids) that gets dumped into rivers creates problems and health risks when that high-TDS river water gets treated by municipal water authorities for residential use, due to the creation of DBP's (disinfection by products) such as trihalomethanes (TTHM's).

New concerns have arisen in early-2011 about the soluble radioactive elements like Ra226 returning to the surface in flowback. The fear is that these have been ending up in people's tapwater along with the more obvious trihalomethanes.

Each Marcellus Shale gas well listed in the first DEP production report included a column listing which wastewater plant the flowback fluids were transported to. While most of these facilities are located in Pennsylvania, the report also included Ohio wastewater facilities that included deep injection wells.
