CADDO PARISH COMMITTEE EVOLVED INTO A REGIONAL "WATER RESOURCES COMMITTEE OF NW LOUISIANA"

Slide 17

Water Resources Committee of Northwest Louisiana Watershed Based - Volunteer Committee A Self-sorting out Institution The Committee was framed by the Caddo Parish President, a concerned national & Director of the RRWMI. As WRCNL developed, more issues emerged, & it turned out to be more adaptable & adjusted to explain new difficulties.

Slide 30

Water Sources for Haynesville Play Groundwater Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer Initially the fundamental hotspot for fracing At the begin of Haynesville blast, numerous administrators did not completely value Louisiana's groundwater directions LSUS Red River Watershed Mangement Institute

Slide 31

Local water supply issues created Professional waterworks heads got to be distinctly persuaded that the withdrawal of inordinate measures of groundwater by gas administrators was exhausting the aquifer.

Slide 32

Caddo Parish/LSUS GW Monitoring Winter-Spring Summer 2010 2008 Typical Carrizo-Wilcox occasionally affected water level bend Lewis and Hanson, 2010

Slide 34

Alternative Water Sources - Red River Alluvial Aquifer Office of Conservation prescribed that administrators utilize the Red River Alluvial Aquifer for fracing wells LSUS RRERP Shreveport A Sustainable water source USGS, 1995 LSUS RRWMI, 2008 Non-Potable - Yields up to 1600 gallons/minute

Slide 36

Alternate Water Sources for Frac Water - Ponds Get Rich Quick ?– Don't deal the homestead, simply offer the lake water… Private lakes & organization manufactured pits have turned into a vital wellspring of frac water Industry assembled lakes The Times Oct. 19, 2009

Slide 37

Water Wars - Ponds began to go away

Slide 38

Shifting the gas business from groundwater to surface water First endeavors to obtain consent to set up withdrawal locales on the Red River were met with long postponements and clear inaction by the US Corps of Engineers. In the long run, the Red River Watershed Management Institute joined with the Red River Waterway Commission and sorted out a meeting between the Corps and a portion of the common gas administrators at LSUS.

Slide 39

The Ad Hoc Committee that was set up to help the gas administrators move from groundwater to surface water (Red River) as a frac water source, developed into the Water Energy Working Group LSUS RRWMI

Slide 40

CLOSE COORDINATION BETWEEN WATER ENERGY WORKING GROUP & OFFICE OF CONSERVATION HAS BEEN CRITICAL FOR SUCCESS LSUS RRWMI LSUS

Slide 41

Water Energy Working Group – Meeting at LSU Shreveport WG turned out to be more adaptable & adjusted to issues before or as they emerged 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. Angle & 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 deliberate premise, most Haynesville administrators lessened their utilization of groundwater Co-seats: Directors of Red River Watershed Management Institute & Red River Waterway Commission

Slide 42

From Groundwater to Surface Water Learning to Deal with the Haynesville Boom Self-Organizing The Working Group was shaped to help administrators access the Red River as a frac water source in lieu of focused on groundwater aquifer. Like other administrative elements encountering the unbelievably fast improvement of the Haynesville, USACE was all of a sudden stood up to with exceptional water related issues (sent 8 administrators!) so as to access waterway locales for water withdrawal, USACE confirmed that a Section 10 allow was required (does not offer authorization to take water). In spite of the fact that Louisiana had beforehand ordered groundwater enactment, at the t
