Huge New Deep Seated Water Aquifer Discovered in Texas

More Evidence of Fresh Deep Seated Water

Last fall while exploring for oil and gas deposits in southwest Texas, a driller instead found a huge freshwater deep aquifer. Now called the Maverick Basin Aquifer, it is known to be at least 3,000 square miles in area and averages 1,000 feet thick in most places. This is another of the increasing number of deep freshwater sources being discovered across the planet.

The aquifer is about a mile deep, but AquaterreX is unique in its ability to locate Deep Seated Water without having to drill wells thousands of feet deep. The Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates oil and gas activities in the state and which also maintains stewardship of natural resources and the environment, said that lab data from the Maverick Basin Aquifer shows it meets or exceeds federal and state drinking water standards. The study also stated that the aquifer’s recharge zone (the area that refills or “recharges” the aquifer with water) has no connection to the nearby Rio Grande river.

Deep Seated Water is Abundant

With discoveries like this and similar findings around the world, AquaterreX’s state of the art tools make it possible to supplement the world’s freshwater supply with vast amounts of underground water that remains untapped across the planet. Indeed, the US National Groundwater Association estimates there is 6,000 years of freshwater supply in the upper two kilometers of the earth’s crust Nature Geoscience article. AquaterreX has developed the ability to locate and economically bring to the surface these previously untapped water resources.

Deep Seated Water – An Almost Unlimited Alternative Source

Deep Seated Water (DSW), is groundwater, typically sourced from deep aquifers that are located lower than shallow aquifers. Such deep aquifers are supplied not only from local catchment basins but also by subsurface inflows across basin boundaries. Deep Seated Water also encompasses water created at the mantle level of the Earth under extreme heat and pressure.

Deep Seated Water – The Missing Piece

Deep Seated Water is the Missing Piece that can solve the water crisis puzzle. Many water strategies focus on conservation, rather than additional supply. Other solutions such as desalination and wastewater treatment are potential answers for some, but they also come with trade-offs such as high cost, high energy usage, long planning periods and toxic waste. Deep Seated Water is located almost everywhere on the planet, and it can be added to the mix of solutions as a supplemental freshwater source that is not subject to pollution, is fast and easy to implement and is economical and scalable. And, tapping Deep Seated Water allows both surface water and shallow aquifer sources to recharge, making the total system more environmentally sustainable.

About AquaterreX

AquaterreX (www.aquaterrex.com) is a global environmental services organization with a mission to broadly implement effective water and food security solutions. The name AquaterreX comes from the Latin, aqua (water) and French, terre (earth, land) which is a derivative of the Latin, terra, and “X” for exploration. Thus, AquaterreX encompasses water and land solutions for the planet.

The company possesses proprietary technology to locate Deep Seated Water, which is fresh water situated below the shallow groundwater that supplies the majority of fresh water on the planet. This vast new source of water can help solve the water crisis facing billions of people.
