Could My Vibrating Washer Mystery Be Solved?
A report on TV last night has me thinking. The report was about the Eagle Ford oil field area in which we are a part of. They interviewed a lady who said things were jiggling in her house at times. They spoke about all the oil field activity and how they have to dispose of the salt water that comes from the oil they are pumping out of the wells. At one time they run it out on the ground but are no longer allowed to so they have what they call injection wells where they pump the salt water into. Somehow some people think that is causing earthquakes. Now they were not specifically speaking about this area but about southeast of us but I do know there is a least one injection well between us and the ranch. My washer doesn't vibrate everyday and it didn't do it until recently. I've heard it maybe three times and it has always been when I haven't used it or the dryer and I have not used anything in the house to cause a vibration plus we have a sturdy cement foundation with brick walls. Humm could it be a mini earthquake?
