Using an evaporation pond isn’t a popular choice among environmentalists, farmers, or regulatory agencies. Stories about unregulated evaporation ponds in Kansas in the 1930s and 1940s mention destroyed farmland and water systems with dissolved salts, leading some states to ban the practice altogether.
So if one is part of your SWD operation, it better be incredibly efficient to avoid the focus of anti-evaporation groups. At ChemFlo we understand what’s going on in the SWD regulatory world. And we have the evaporative pond treatment products to make your pond the most efficient it can be.
Evaporation ponds aren’t the focus of positive stories anywhere.
In Kansas, evaporation ponds commonly used in the mid-20th century ended up accumulating salts over decades. Rain washed out the salt or concentrated brine, where it got into the ground water. Or the salt remained and crews covered it with soil. But that had negative long-term impacts on any crops that farmers attempted to grow in the area.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service labels evaporation ponds a risk to migratory birds and other wildlife.
And state regulatory agencies around the country have either banned them or severely limit their use.
What you need is to make your evaporation pond as efficient as possible, to mitigate the concerns of government agencies and others.
