So perhaps everyone should just start taking their "several ounces of urine" into the yard and water their lawns that way. It would save water and green up the yard.

I guess the question becomes do you have to put a sprayer on the end of "your hose" before you water the lawn in this manner, and what about those who do not have hoses, do that have to get one installed?

Why is it that everyone is focused on the home owner wasting water when you can drive through town (yes even Wise County towns) and see hundreds of gallons running into the creeks from businesses watering their grass and bushes? It's even worse in the metroplex.

How about this idea: not more greeen grass for business?

What about the folks drilling and fracking gas wells who ruin millions and millions of water every day? I'm afraid my gallon or two to flush my urine doesn't come close to their waste.

Anonymous said...

eminem, multiply your piddly water use times 5 million several times a day by all the people in the metroplex. Are you the only one that pees?

TXsharon said...

The O&G industry uses between 1 and 6 Million gallons to frac a well. Haliburton claims that the average is 17 fracing's per well.

That is where our water is going NOT down the toilet.

TxSheehan, Why is your hair green?

m&m said...

That's right TXSharon. They waste, waste and waste and that's why we're starting to see water wells drying up in Wise and Parker counties.

It also has to do with the fact that it has not rained significantly over the last two years to replenish the ground sources. Look at how many more people are using the water now than 10 years ago. The O&G has a major effect but they also put a ton of money into the economy. Give and Take relationship.

My well went dry last week and I don't know what i am going to do. I guess I will have to drill another one but at $20 per foot with a $4000 min. and a 3 month waiting list. These water well guys are making a killing.

Limited water is a problem. So why is it such a bad idea to hold the flushes on urine in the toilet? It's not the whole answer, but together with smarter teeth brushing and showering rules, and less water consuming landscaping around homes and businesses, maybe we ca stretch it out for awhile. Eventually, all these extra people and animals and crops will cause a continuing more severe problem. We'll have to make some choices. Are you ready?

In an effort to conserve water,remember in September to point your member towards the timber and keep it limber.

On the news they said that Jerry Jones was number 5 of out the biggest water users in the metroplex

3:40 That a good one .

I don't have a problem with conserving water but I think the drilling companies should conserve too. They are using the most water.

These replies are sad. While frac water is a waste, trying to push blame solely onto those companies is a cop out. You may not think you use that much water, but Decatur is running up against its supply capacity at 4.5 million gallons a day. And 60% of that water is used for water lawns. Now that is pathetic. You don't need green grass. Either give up or xeriscape.

And that is just one city in this county. I bet the majority of well owners don't know how much water they are using per month. I wouldn't be surprised if it was more than 12,000 gallons a month. What makes it worse is that is for mostly a family of four or five.

Trying to cover up your own waste by showcasing others reveals a lot. It doesn't matter though, either change now or you'll be forced to in the next eighteen months.

Hey 4:35 I blame you asshole ! What you gonna do about that ? 4:35 USES ALL THE WATER FOR HIS DRUG LAB YOU ARE SO BUSTED NOW BIIAUTCH !

Been doin' that for years - we call it Peeing with a Friend - not that we are all in the toilet at the same time, but it sure saves water.

M aybe we can get all the women to like golden showers . I know Sheenan and mzchief would be the first to volunteer!

I don't like other people's pee pee splashing up on me when I use the bathroom. So I prefer a clean pot.

Let's all go back to outhouses and having to lime them every few days.

Anonymous said...

Been doing that for years because of septic tank. Maybe if we did that, they wouldn't STILL BE LETTING WATER OUT OF LAKE BRIDGEPORT. Oh, why are they still doing that?

Anonymous said...

5:22, you have never had a drink. (what I just said makes as much sense as your dumb comment). And why do Wise Countians still hang up on the Lake Bridgeport thing. HEY country folks, the lake was built, paid for and is owned by city folks. We're letting you USE it for recreation. Want some water? Go build your own "dam" lake.

If you don't like gas companies using lots of water, stop buying electricity and gasoline like it's going out of style. The companies are drilling because all of us numbnuts will pay $3 plus for a gallon of gas. And that's because we make choices, not because we HAVE to. You might think you have to live 20 miles from black people, and drive an 8 cylinder truck that never hauls anything but air, but you don't. So the water's getting used because of you, not because companies just get a kick out of pouring water down a hole.

anon at 10:33 the quip about driving an eight cylinder truck and hauling nothing but air made me grin......and then laugh out loud. I have neighbors like that.

So if I move to South Fort Worth and haul black people around in my 8 cylinder truck will gas prices go down?
