Stevenson Ranch SCV Santa Clarita Deep Well Hell - Saving Money Cost less

Debate In Los Angeles County - Salty Sewer Sludge in Stevenson Ranch SCV Santa Clarita Valley - Are they Fracking Us High Pressure or Low and Slow?

Epic Drought in West is Literally Moving Mountains

Size does matter.  
Water makes a difference More and Less, surprises in store? 
In fact, some parts of California’s mountains have been uplifted as much as 15 millimeters (about 0.6 inches) in the past 18 months because the massive amount of water lost in the drought is no longer weighing down the land, causing it to rise a bit like an uncoiled spring, a new study shows.

So it “rebounds,” or lifts up, said study co-author Adrian Borsa, a researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, at the University of California San Diego.

The questions and answers all matter, 
what is the Matter with the Water and what differences will it make Good or Bad?

Shake - Quake - Rise - Sink - Stink?

At Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA), our role extends beyond serving as the Santa Clarita Valley’s public water wholesaler. Each day, our staff strives to deliver a reliable water source at a reasonable price, while simultaneously serving the community’s water needs on other levels. CLWA’s staff and Board of Directors work to improve the communityby educating residents on easy water-saving practices and implementing programs that reward water use efficiency, such as our SCV-Friendly Gardening Program and Large Landscape Conservation Program. We urge you to join us in this commitment to water conservation and help use water more efficiently in the valley. By conserving water, you help us at CLWA help you.

darrylmanzer0215As Chicken Little so eloquently said, the sky is falling. And deep-well injection can’t happen here, and fracking here is bad, too, and traffic is bad, and Chiquita Canyon Landfill is bad, and Cemex is bad, and…
First off, folks: Deep-well injection has been happening here in the SCV for a long time. It was and is a method to force the oil up out of the ground. Oil wells at a depth of a few hundred feet to over 15,000 feet deep have had water injection. Many of those wells are only a few miles from Stevenson Ranch and the west side – maybe 3 miles at the most. To add insult to injury, those wells have also been fracked.  Credit

Health risks in aquifer recharge using reclaimed water 

State of the art report - 

If aquifer recharge is haphazard or poorly planned, chemical or microbial contaminants in the water could harm the health of consumers, particularly when reclaimed water is being used. Wastewater may contain numerous contaminants (many of them poorly characterized) that could have health implications if introduced to drinking-water sources.

They're being told by the local water company that the sludge is safe to use and even drink, the report added. A spokesperson for the Golden State Water Company said they do weekly tests on the water and haven't seen any safety issues.
"Throwing up, going to the bathroom," said Emy Sebastian, a Gardena resident, in a report. "After two days, my oldest daughter is sick, too. After one week, I get sick, too."

Several scientists and seismologists with the USGS, the University of Colorado at Boulder, the Oklahoma Geological Survey, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have published a paper in the journal Science that calls for greater transparency from the oil and gas industry, as well as collaboration between industry, government, and the public, in order to mitigate the impacts of these “human-induced earthquakes.”
“Deep injection of wastewater is the primary cause of the dramatic rise in detected earthquakes and the corresponding increase in seismic hazard in the central U.S.,” the USGS said in a press release

Did Fracking Cause Oklahoma to Have 3 Times as Many Earthquakes as California in 2014? Water Injections V/s Fracking?

Earthquakes are synonymous with California to most Americans, but West Coasters might be surprised to learn they’re far from the new center of the seismic landscape in the U.S.

Many of these studies blame the process of wastewater injection, a process in which oil and gas companies pump the wastewater used in fracking wells deep underground. The injection of the water can increase fluid pressure underground, making it easier for faults to slip and cause an earthquake.
