Get Rich Quick ? Dont sale the farm, just sell the pond water Private ponds & company built pits have become an important source of frac water The Times Oct. 19, 2009 Industry built ponds Water Wars - Ponds started to dry up

Shifting the gas industry from groundwater to surface water First attempts to acquire permission to set up withdrawal sites on the Red River were met with long delays and apparent inaction by the US Corps of Engineers. Eventually, the Red River Watershed Management Institute joined with the Red River Waterway Commission and organized a meeting between the Corps and some of the natural gas operators at LSUS. LSUS RRWMI

The Ad Hoc Committee that was set up to help the gas operators transition from groundwater to surface water (Red River) as a frac water source, evolved into the Water Energy Working Group CLOSE COORDINATION BETWEEN WATER ENERGY WORKING GROUP & OFFICE OF CONSERVATION HAS BEEN CRITICAL FOR SUCCESS LSUS LSUS

RRWMI Water Energy Working Group Meeting at LSU Shreveport WG became more flexible & adapted to issues before or as they arose Participants: US Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg (USACE) Red River Waterway Commission, LAF&WS, LADEQ Red River Watershed Management Institute (LSUS) Red River Valley Assoc., Sabine River Authority, Caddo Levee District, Bossier Levee District, La DOTD, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Chesapeake , Questar, EnCana, Petrohawk, Camterra , JW, Exco, Shell, El Paso, Titanium Env. , Louisiana Oil and Gas Association, Red River Pump, Impact Energy Services, Water Resources Committee of Northwest Louisiana, International Paper

Early on & on a voluntary basis, most Haynesville operators reduced their use of groundwater Co-chairs: Directors of Red River Watershed Management Institute & Red River From Groundwater to Surface Water Learning to Deal with the Haynesville Boom Self-Organizing The Working Group was formed to assist operators gain access to the Red River as a frac water source in lieu of stressed groundwater aquifer. Like other regulatory entities experiencing the incredibly rapid development of the Haynesville, USACE was suddenly confronted with unique water related issues (sent 8 managers!) In order to gain access to river sites for water withdrawal, USACE

determined that a Section 10 permit was required (does not give permission to take water). Although Louisiana had previously enacted groundwater legislation, at the time there was no surface water legislation. From Groundwater to Surface - Results A second meeting was called about a month later to provide the Corps with estimated future withdrawal rates/volumes and to finalize a protocol for permit submission. Just prior to the meeting, Chesapeake was issued the first permit. After this meeting 20 more permits were issued to several other operators. Access to Red River! LSUS Red River Watershed Management Institute

From Groundwater to Surface Water Water Energy Working Group Third Meeting - Resilience The third meeting was called because, operators were told permits were being held up by US Fish and Wildlife Service. The USF&WS was contacted & a high-level manager attended our third meeting. He informed the operators that they had to take measures to protect three threatened or endangered species in or along the Red River. In response, operators developed survey protocols for Earth Fruit, the Interior Least Tern & developed slotted water intake manifolds for the Pallid Sturgeon. Alternative surface water frac sources EXCO is building an 8 mile pipeline in order to use treated

wastewater from International Paper Co. at Mansfield, La. 12 million gallons/day The Times, 2010 This gives DNR a tool for tracking water use It was during this timeframe, DNR was becoming more flexible & proactive. The Secretary held numerous, lengthy public meetings throughout the State After completing an oil or gas well, all operators have to fill out an Office of Conservation Well History and Work Resume Report Form (WH-1). Now operators also have to show their water use on Page 3 of the WH-1.

Groundwater supply well Total Groundwater Used Total Surface Water Used From Groundwater to Surface Water DNR-Office of Mineral Resources has worked diligently to develop a surface water use plan Who owns the surface water? Surface water opinions were rendered by Attorney General stating that the state owns all naturally running water. The AG opinions were used as the basis for enacting surface water use legislation. Act 955 calls for the establishment of cooperative endeavor agreements (CEA) in order to withdraw

water from streams or lakes fed by streams. Haynesville Frac Job - Shreveport Reducing the use of groundwater: How is the voluntary approach working? Results?

have learned. Go back to your community, roll up your sleeves and start working across the table with those who hold differing perspectives about our natural resources. For it is only by honestly confronting these deep, difficult problems facing our society that we can hope to resolve them. What kind of legacy do you Tell me and I forget.
