Dead Post Oaks conveniently downwind to previously recorded by TCEQ VOC’s at almost 1.2 million ppb !
Hearty Post Oaks have been surviving this drought….note in this video how trees to the east and west are providing the visual coverage of the ugly and dangerous DFW Midstream Compressor Station. I have reports of lung ailments from residents north (down wind of the site). In the video the compressor station is behind the businesses and also behind the restaurant Campo Verde.
All summer (s) long children and teens have also been downwind to this compressor station and I am asking the nurse (or any parents of Camp Thurman students reading this) to share with us any unusual health effects that have changed or increased since this compressor station has moved into the area. These can be reported to me in confidentiality or anonymously, and I will pass this along to the UTA nurses who are gathering this data.
Per a conversation with Melinda Britian, a city representative for Dalworthington Gardens, a vapor recovery system on one of the dump valves has been promised. Also they have been asked or offered to have twice daily inspections.
Last month in July, they admitted to venting glycol directly into the atmosphere when changing filters. Folks were complaining of a sickly sweet odor (benzene?) and so they were promised that filters will now be charcoal to help with the odors.
