Uhhhh... Question: How long would it take that Canadian city of 281,000 to use that much domestic water?
Answer: 137 years
And that's just the fracking. LNG conversion would also use an enormous amount of water. One of the LNG plants proposes to use 70,000 cubic metres of water a day from the Kitimat River. That equates to the daily domestic use of a city of 255,500 people.
And natural gas pipelines are pressure tested with, you guessed it, water.
Are you concerned about where the water for BC's LNG industry would come from?
Are you concerned that the BC Oil and Gas Commission is in charge of water permits for the industry?
If "yes," read here, and let the government know.
