Did TRWD even know Lake Arlington was a flood zone-#frackaway they said?

No that is not a drill rig in the background-it’s a crane.

Pictures of Lake Arlington Flooding #SaveLakeArlington #StopBluestone

Here is the proposed location of the BlueStone Resources Injection Well where the red flag is. Note the lines under the lake, our drinking water source, is littered up with gas well laterals under the lake…the City of Ft Worth and Arlington promoted Urban Drilling and now the devil has come to collect their greed money in the form of human risk to our drinking water supplies. #karmaSux

Please attend stakeholder meeting Thursday, April 20 6-8pm at Handley Meadowbrook Community Center at 6201 Beaty St in Ft Worth TX.

Originally I went out there to see if the drill sites on the Ft Worth side that are too fracking close to the lake’s edge were flooding. Here is a Google earth image of the fence I took pictures of at the Wilbarger street entrance of the Quicksilver gate.

And here is the flooding pictures I took on Nov 28, 2015 of the Quicksilver entrance at Wilbarger….

So the above pictures at the Quicksilver site (see the flooded white trailer?) had me thinking at least one or all of those drill sites on the Ft Worth side has flooded and is probably communicating with Lake Arlington? #ONLYaDRONEcanTELLus?

UPDATE: 4/22/2017

Per a KERA news report on a community meeting for this injection well location, Mary Kelleher (mentioned earlier in this blogpost), spoke of a TRWD protest letter and was quoted…..

“I just want y’all to know that our agency is totally opposed to this injection well,” Kelleher said.

My concern at that meeting that KERA recently reported on was about proximity and flooding https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2017/04/17/pictures-of-lake-arlington-flooding-savelakearlington-stopbluestone/ as well as a history we’ve already had with the “then” Quicksilver padsite workover mishap when someone forgot to close the valve and overnight toxic waste waters went into Lake Arlington back in July of 2010…https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2014/05/24/nuisance-when-we-drank-frack-water-arlington-residents-july-2010/.

    Why Prima Facie Trumping HB40 will Probably NOT be Challenged in McAllen Denied Gas Well Permit

    ……that’s a total of 100 million dollars of equitable tax that McAllen can see.”

    In a follow up story ValleyCentral wrote, “The well immediately attracted high-profile opposition. Former U.S. Rep. Ruben Hinojosa, McAllen Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Leonel Garza III and attorney Ric Gonzalez — who represents several Hidalgo County cities — opposed the permit. Stefanie Herweck, who serves on the Lower Rio Grande Valley Sierra Club’s executive committee, also wrote a column for The Monitor  opposing the permit. 
    In response to questions from the City Engineer’s Office, the company stated the well would not involve fracking and the risk of any problems would be extremely low”.
    NOT  INVOLVE  FRACKING?  In Facebooking with Stefanie Herweck her response was, “And they reserve the right to frack–that’s in the permit, so what the operator says is irrelevant”.
    Frackers are so desperate they can lie to our faces? So why would the operators NOT challenge HB40? hb40

    primafacie
    HERES WHY>>>>>>>Stefanie Herweck, wrote in The Monitor, (I boldfaced for emphasis) “There are more than two dozen homes within 400 yards of the proposed drill site, with several homes even closer…..This particular North McAllen well site is designated as being in a hydrogen sulfide field.…..A blowout and explosion north of Karnes City burned a path a quarter-mile from the well. For 24 hours, oil, water, gas, and hundreds of thousands of pounds of chemicals and air pollutants spewed onto homes and farms. Because of the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas, an area within a 3-mile radius from the site was evacuated; some residents forced to stay away for a month…. a 3-mile evacuation zone could affect tens of thousands of people, as well as numerous schools, businesses and shopping centers…..McAllen’s oil and gas well ordinances have been on the books since 1933, and include a provision that allows the city commission to ‘refuse any application for a permit to drill any well at any particular location … for health reasons, or safety reasons … where the drilling of such well on such particular location might be injurious, or be a disadvantage to the city or to its inhabitants as a whole, or to a substantial number of its inhabitants.’ HB 40 does not tie the city commission’s hands”.
    ……….H2S has H9 reporting requirements and it is not something you take risks with that’s why!!!!!………
    Years ago, the first and only plug & abandon padsites was at the (then planned) Viridian in Arlington…an upscale area.
    So is it the upscale planned development tax money at risk or the H2S field that poses too high of a risk?
    One day in my dream world, fracking is banned because it is NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ALL NEIGHBORHOODS NO MATTER THEIR ECONOMIC STATUS OR H2S RISK.

    TEDX List of Potential Endocrine Disruptors Captures Chemicals Associated with Unconventional Oil and Gas

    The TEDX List now includes a use/source category that allows you to search for chemicals used during the process of unconventional oil and gas production and well development, as well as those measured in air, water and soil near those sites.
    Our team reviewed 110 such chemicals and identified 63 potential endocrine disruptors. In addition, 56 chemicals previously listed were updated to show that they are also associated with drilling, hydraulic fracturing, or other relevant processes. This brings the TEDX List to a total of 1,392 potential endocrine disruptors, 119 in the new category “Unconventional Oil and Gas”.
    The TEDX List is easy to use – click here to see the chemicals associated with unconventional oil and gas operations.

    Attn. TX water drinkers – email now re HB1818

    Please email and/or call all members of the Texas Energy Resource Committee regarding the Texas Railroad Commission Sunset Bill HB1818 they will vote on Monday, March 6.

    Also call or email your local House representative.

    Ask them to strengthen HB1818 in four ways

    (1) Make enforcement and violation information available in a searchable form on the RRC website.

    (2) Increase bonding requirements to cover the expense of addressing the large backlog of abandoned wells.

    (3) Increase maximum fines from $10,000 to $25,000 per fine per day to deter offenders from repeat violations. The $25,000 amount is commensurate with penalties at the Attorney General of Texas.

    (4) Limit political contributions to the elected RRC Commissioners to the election season. Commissioners should be prevented from taking contributions from parties involved in contested case hearings while these cases are pending before them.

    Contact these committee members immediately. OK to leave phone message in evenings and weekends.

    Email Action Item-Will State Force City to Remove Disposal Well Ban in Arlington via HB40?

    meeting-disposal-well

    Thanks to two Arlington citizens for this info!

    laterals-lake-arlington

    Thanks FishCreekMonitor for the pic

    UPDATE March 1 2017: Turns out they want to drill this disposal well where the red flag is on the west side of Lake Arlington (our drinking water reservoir). Look at the laterals already UNDER the lake. We don’t need any seismic activity, leaks, or spills near there or anywhere.

    It remains to be seen if the state will force the city to remove their injection well ban via HB40.

    January of 2016 I asked the city to buy up these padsite when they were being auctioned, but my request fell on deaf ears…now karma is biting back.  I hate it when I’m right….we lost the chance to shut in these wells permanently by our drinking water source, Lake Arlington……now we are on track to get an injection well over there thanks to the new owners, Blueridge!

    And dRIP to the finance company founder, Richard Rainwater, that backed Blueridge for the 245 million to buy those Quicksilver assets.

    Please email  the state…

    Subject: Re: Deny permit for inner city disposal injection well Cravens lease
    The city of arlington has filed a formal request for denial of the injection well permit request.

    Sent from my iPhone


    U R G E N T !!! Bluestone Natural Resources, who bought the Quicksilver pad sites around Lake Arlington, signed a ten year agreement* last year with operators of the Lake Arlington Compressor Station (near our drinking water source) to have them process their natural gas. They are bound to production numbers and expensive compression prices during a time when the oil & gas sector pricing is low.

    Naturally, Bluestone is probably looking to cut waste disposal costs by drilling an injection disposal well so they can more affordably dump BTEX, heavy metals, & NORM ladened produced water waste** in Arlington instead of trucking this stuff to disposal wells further outside the city limits like in Venus TX.

    Please email ASAP at the below email addresses*** asking in so many words….

    Attention Arlington City Council Members and Mayor:

    I am writing to request that you uphold our current ordinance on disposal wells in Arlington.  Currently we have a ban on disposing natural gas waste waters that involves forcing dangerous fluids under the ground that risk spills, leaks, and earthquakes. Please keep us, our property and our drinking water safe, thank you.

    ————EventBrite Link————

    And then lets pray that HB41 (the state) won’t override them and force us to force these dangerous fluids under the ground in our town and risk spills, leaks, and earthquakes.

    Form W14 ($250 fee per well) to request disposal well is on this link.

    *http://www.naturalgasintel.com/articles/105979-crestwood-bluestone-sign-barnett-agreement-quicksilver-drops-motion, “Under its agreement with BlueStone, Crestwood will provide natural gas gathering and processing services for a decade using a fixed-fee and percent of proceeds fee structure. BlueStone, in turn, has provided production assurances to Crestwood and agreed to return all currently shut-in wells to production by July 1. BlueStone also agreed not to shut in or choke back production for economic reasons through the end of 2018.

    The agreement covers the Alliance, Cowtown and Lake Arlington systems in the Barnett Shale..”
