WASHINGTON, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --David R. Stewart, PhD PE and Chief
Science Officer of Energy Water Solutions in Houston Texas was invited to give
feedback as an expert member on the Environmental Protection Agency's Frac
Flowback and Produced Water Technical Roundtable. The EPA hosts an online
update via live webinar on these issues today. Dr. Stewart was invited to
Washington DC with other industry experts to meetings on September 15, 2012 of
the Hydraulic Fracturing panel which was held at EPA Headquarters. This
committee was formed at the request of Congress, and this morning there will
be a live online update to "EPA's study of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic
Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources: Flowback and Produced Water Technical
Roundtable". Dr. Stewart said, "Congress asked the EPA to study these issues,
and our role is to discuss future regulations including using frac flowback
and produced water for beneficial use". Dave Stewart has patented
technologies and processes that work together for Energy Water Solutions
clients to filter frac flowback and produced water and turn it to clean fresh
water. This clean water still needs state legislation passed, to be ground
discharged in some states for beneficial energy and agricultural uses.

Energy Water Solutions' Dr. Dave Stewart participated in several meetings on
expert panels at the invitation of the EPA, to discuss how hydraulic
fracturing could affect drinking water resources. Representative energy
company participants on this EPA frack water committee include Chesapeake
Energy Corporation, Chevron, HighMount, Newfield Energy, Range Resources,
Southwestern Energy as well as regulatory officials from the Utah Division of
Oil, Gas and Mining, Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, Railroad
Commission of Texas and the New York State Department of Environmental
Conservation. You may see the list of expert participants on the frac
