The Jamestown Sun in North Dakota reports that demand for what's called industrial water for drilling is growing in the Bakken shale in North Dakota.
The demand for water is expected to develop into a water-producing industry that could generate as much as $120 million a year in sales.
The Bakken shale is likely to get up to 3,000 new wells per year for the next 15 to 25 years.
