I'm somewhat torn on the issue.

Take central KS as an example... There were many family fortunes made in the 1980s thanks to a huge oil boom. As someone who grew up on a small family farm, I know the importance of cheap and readily available energy. However, we've found that virtually none of the well water is good anymore; it's either completely gone (drained into dry oil wells) or is contaminated with saltwater. Unfortunately,unless you have a shallow well of less than 50 feet or so, you don't have usable well water.

At the federal level, yes, it should be shut down. Texas should decide if this is OK for Texas, not DC.

Texas has decided that Domestic energy production is more important than recreational boating and fishing. As a Texas citizen, I see nothing wrong with it and think their priorities are straight.

This story has potential. But common, simply the fact that it is being done by CBS News casts doubt on . . . every aspect of it.

Very frustrating.

Lakes aren't just for boating and fishing. Where lakes are, water is seeped into the aquifer.
