Where's Your Water Going?

Friends in Wyoming,

Take a look at your county below and see how many GALLONS of water the oil industry has injected back into the ground or left to evaporate. 

That's water that could be put to beneficial-use for crops or herds, leaving you water in the aquifer to drink or wash your hands.

It's now gone. So, are the oil people bad, throwing away your water? Nope, we just need a new way of doing things in oil-producing states. Why throw water away when you can put it to beneficial-use?
