Annotation: This website provides a cost-effective tool that will allow operators to make fiscally and environmentally sound decisions on water management. It also promotes the identification of new sources of useable water for communities near unconventional gas resources by identifying potential end-uses for produced and flow-back water. The project website includes an overview of water treatment options, a catalog of treatments that characterizes and assesses existing and emerging technologies that are either being applied in shale gas arena, or have the capability for application, and regulatory information. The information provided is specific to the Barnett, Fayetteville, Haynesville, Marcellus, and Woodford shale plays, but provides information that would be generally applicable to other shale gas plays as well.
