I wonder who will get preferencial treatment when the summer drought season comes? will the gas companies be able to continue taking water while residents of the boroughs have to go on water conservation? it's one thing to take water for peoples water supply, it's another to take it simply for profit. where is the manditory recycling of frac water? why can't they use waste water from other sources? all they do is mix nasty chemicals in with it, does it really have to be clean?

bottled water has it's place, such as traveling in areas of uncertain water quality(other countries)
as for here, it's a stupid and wasteful fad. I do buy bottled water at times, probably less than a dozen bottles per year. I also keep and refill the bottles, freezing them in the summer to take to work, use as ice packs in my cooler, etc.
if we take care of our water resources, we don't need bottled water.

Water bottles suck..... I am trying to get my family off them but it is hard. I have 4 kids who look at me like I am crazy when I tell them to drink water out of the spicket. They think water actually comes from a freakin plastic bottle! I actually bought each of them a nalogen bottle to use, we are slowly getting there. As for the list above that is for new and modified for 2011. The thread below shows what they currently withdrawl. This list will grow and grow as the industry does. We ain't seen nothing yet.

IT all sounds like a lot of water but on the scale of things it's not much at all. That's not to diminish the impact, for instance at this minute the flow at Marietta on the Susquehanna River the flow is 9000 cfs. And it's low right now compared to the mean. The cummulative amount of withdrawal is what's important not just where. Drawing a million gallons a day from Pine creek is but a small amount compared to what the daily flow of the creek is on average. But that doesn't mean we can go crazy either.
The issue of withdrawals and the impacts is one that has to be watched carefully and be reasoned with when responding to additional requests for withdrawals.
At 1480 cfs at Cedar Run on Pine Creek, the flow per minute right now would be approximately 660,000 gallons of water a minute. Given another way @ 1480 cfs is a rate of 950,000,000 gallons a day.
