The problem with selling waste water effluent is on the fracturing companies. Waste water is deemed a pollutant by the DEP, not unlike brine.

However, due to it being classified as a pollutant, the fracturing companies cannot store it in inpoundments, they have to use tanks. They also have to track it and permit it's transport differently.
