Agriculture

Our patented technology was pioneered in Colorado’s DJ Basin and was used as the catalyst to change water rights laws in the state. In early 2007, a petition to the Wellington Water Court produced the foundation for allowing the discharge of produced water in the state. Once an EPA permit was obtained, work was begun to allow a permit by rule, which subsequently required the passage of new legislation. Colorado Senate Bill 165 and House Bill 1303 were written to address produced water discharge for beneficial use. Over 7.5 million barrels of produced water have subsequently been released for beneficial agricultural use.
