Title: Potable water as commodity
Text: Water Managment: Beneficial Use: Potable Water Use: "... Although there is currently no regulation that requires produced water of drinking quality to be conserved, this water could be used to settle mitigation agreements and excess water could represent a saleable commodity. In populated areas, the water could be used to supplement water supplies during the dry seasons or drought years when there is a water deficit."
