Kern County is home to one of the country’s richest oil and gas pay zones. It is also home to some of the country’s most productive agricultural farmland. One looming challenge in this environmentally sensitive state is that the oil and gas formations are close to the water table. Additionally, the area has historically been a very active seismic zone. The challenge here is to support responsible oil extraction with an environmentally safe wastewater disposal technology. The prospect of fresh water recovery for irrigation and other uses is a huge opportunity.
