Couple that with an oil surge and people are keeping an eye on how much water the oil and gas industries use.
We visit with representatives of one Texas based company who is doing their part to recycle water and help oil and gas companies use as little fresh water as possible.
Bosque Systems is leading a nationwide oil and gas initiative in water management. In the past year alone, with their new processes, the Texas based company has assisted area drillers in saving more than $100 million (M) gallons of fresh water in the Concho Valley.
The Concho Valley remains in severe drought conditions; so far in 2014, San Angelo has received about a half-inch of rainfall making this the driest start to a year in more than a century.
