Exxon Mobil Salt Water Disposal Pipeline Leak

Here is a link to a u-tube video from Rancho Los Manulos. This leak happened just this month. It is a saltwater disposal pipeline. Drilling waste water contains a lot of salt and it is very corrosive.

According to this article in the
Scientific American, drilling waste water contains more Total Dissolved Solids, which is a mixture of salt and other minerals, and is fives more salty then sea water.

This is what is coming to Flower Mound! Thanks to Levenick, Dixon, and Wallace. They can spin it any way they want saying they were "tightening" the ordinance blah blah. But the reality is...They opened the door to this type of activity period.
