Buckeye Water District to Sell Treated Water for Hydraulic Fracturing Operations

On December 20, 2012, the Buckeye Water District, a municipal sewer and water authority in Columbiana County, Ohio, approved the sale of treated sewage water for use in hydraulic fracturing operations.  Under the one-year agreement with Keystone Clearwater Solutions, Keystone will pay a bulk rate of $6.60 per thousand gallons for the first 30 million gallons used.  For any additional water, Keystone will pay a descending scale of $12, $10, $8 or $6 per thousand gallons depending on the daily volume used.
