On May 2, Ceres released its report Hydraulic Fracturing & Water Stress: Growing Competitive Pressures for Water which analyzed fracking wells in high or extremely high water stress areas. High water stress areas have 40 to 80 percent of available water being used for agricultural, industrial, or municipal purposes while more than 80 percent of water is being used for these purposes in extremely high water stress areas. The report found that about 47 percent of all U.S. wells are in either high or extremely high water stress areas. 92 percent of wells in Colorado are in extremely high water stress areas while 51 percent of wells in Texas are in high or extremely high water stress areas. The report recommended the recycling of water or the use of alternative sources.
