Sludge and Cows

This is an interesting link to a post that shows cows drinking out of a sludge pit in the Barnett Shale. I’ve read posts by the author before and she is definitely a drilling gadfly. But she makes a good point about the collateral damage that can be caused by drilling.

As the Haynesville Play heats up, Louisiana and Texas need to get ahead of the negative surface impacts. We can’t let our thirst to drill lead to unintended and dangerous consequences. Best to think about this now when the problem can be prevented than later when it’s too late to clean up the mess.
