October 4, 2016 -- This report -- written by researchers at PSE Healthy Energy, UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the University of the Pacific -- shares preliminary findings on the chemical additives used in oil fields that provide produced water that is reused for agricultural irrigation of food crops, livestock watering and recharging aquifers.


This report contains preliminary findings of the analysis of the list of chemical additives used in the oilfields from an information disclosure order from the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board in California. The purpose of this analysis is to identify chemicals of potential concern as a first step prior to more complete human health and environmental hazard and risk analyses that should be undertaken.
