Professionals (and officials) in West Texas are baffled by the appearance of thick black drinking water flowing through the town of Crystal City Texas.
Officials were originally trying to blame the "water tower" as the culprit, but now it is confirmed the water tower is not to blame.
I think I may have found the elusive answer to the problem. An obvious answer that is clearly being ignored by the "officials" in the region.
As it turns out, even a cursory review of the surrounding area (around Crystal City, TX), shows that the town is surrounded by Oil + Gas pumping / Injection well operations.
Yes, Oil , Gas , Injections, and fracking surround the town of Crystal City.
Add in the fact that multiple new earthquakes have struck across Texas (at the Oil + Gas operations) over the past several weeks, and month. A M3.3 struck the Ft. Stockton pumping operations just this week. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquake...
Professionals can't figure out why the water is polluted with a black substance?!
Am I in an episode of the Twilight Zone? Are the officials in Texas not privy to Google Earth or satellite imagery of the area?
SMH, how could anyone "miss" the giant Oil pumping operation + Gas injection operation surrounding the town? How could everyone miss the giant ponds of open exposed water sources directly next to most of these pumping operations?
Open exposed lakes , used for runoff collection, and even overflow from the pumping operations themselves... located directly next to hundreds of operational wells......... it is pretty obvious where the black polluted water in Crystal City Texas is coming from.
All it would take would be one ruptured pipeline polluting the local aquifers, or even seeping from an oil pipeline into a water pipeline via an underground rupture in both sets of pipes.
Either the aquifer itself is fully polluted, or the water lines are intersecting with a leak from the oil + gas wells underground.
