Sucking Up Water and Sand in the Quest for Natural Gas
On a bridge 10 miles outside of Saint Jo, Texas, a small, sleepy town an hour and a half drive northwest of Dallas, a handful of locals have gathered on a July afternoon to look at a sand mine being built off a remote country road.

It's so ironic that the very people that have sucked at the oil and gas industry teat for so long are now the ones protesting it. People in this area didn't mind when EOG pumped million of gallons of water to frac wells on their land. But now that EOG has plans to expose these same people to the uglyness that is oil and gas production, they all squeal like stuck pigs. Maybe now these landowners will finally understand why us "outsiders" think oil and gas wells are ugly. The Harris family has oil and gas wells dotting all over their land but you don't hear them bitching about all the millions they make off these wells, do you? No... They're out there raising hell about someone else making millions off the sand mine while they're being left out. Serves them right!
