Is Fracking Wastewater Shaking Up Oklahoma?
 
In a figurative sense, hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has certainly caused an earthquake in the energy industry. But now there's also evidence that fracking-related activity is causing real earthquakes in Oklahoma, according to a new study. The study links the small Oklahoma earthquakes, which are now more numerous than similar quakes in California, not to actual fracking for gas but to injection of fracking wastewater below the surface at disposal sites. The Washington Post drills down into the subject, taking a detailed look at the evidence for fracking-related quakes. The article also includes a response from an energy-industry research group.

Cut Costs, Not Quality
 
How can water utilities lower costs without lowering the quality of the drinking water they deliver to residential and commercial customers? One key is adopting cutting-edge technologies for testing and treating water that cut costs while also helping utilities comply with new regulations. Water Efficiency discusses a number of these technologies, which utilities across the U.S. appear to be embracing.

Monitoring Bracelet No Mere Bauble
 
Here's a new flow-monitoring product that incorporates an unusual bracelet to help companies monitor water use and cut water costs. The bracelet attaches to water mains to gather real-time information about indoor water use without the need for pipe-cutting or other water-system disruptions. The system displays the collected data and automatically detects leaks and other anomalies.

Treatment Tech Designed to Travel
 
This Canadian news report spotlights technology developed to change the way wastewater is treated in small, out-of-the-way places. It's a compact wastewater plant designed for shipment to remote communities and industrial camps. The report describes the treatment process, which relies on a specially designed membrane to produce non-potable water suitable for applications such as dust control and truck washing.

Low-cost Cleanup of Briny Water
 
Not only can this new process clean "some of the most contaminated water around,"' but it can do so on the cheap, reports Technology Review. The process, developed by an MIT spinout company, is now treating the extremely salty water coming up from some Texas oil wells. It could be cleaning half a million gallons of water per day by the end of this month.

There's Gold in that Waste
 
Rising commodity prices can turn wastewater streams into revenue streams, according to a recent report. With commodities such as oil, precious metals, and industrial fats, oils, and greases fetching higher prices, technologies that can recover these substances from wastewater "are beginning to make sense even for parts-per-million traces of [the] materials," the report's author maintains.
