Arlington surviving tough economic times but is blind to Shale Emission Numbers

It’s OK dear Star Telegram reporter that you waved at me and omitted writing about the one lone protestor greeting you and the attendees at the Arlington Convention Center ( $500 starting price for tables) brag fest. Last year the entourage of Chesapeake limos were very visible.  The TCEQ Phase II Emissions Equipment Inventory Report and the million dollar ERG Ft Worth Air Study do NOT address specifically the most polluting phase which is preproduction.  Most people think that information is known and that acceptable early death rates at risk have been contemplated….no they have not.

Our new proposed gas drilling ordinance is also in a sad state as it does not address air quality measures. We do not know what we risk being made to co-exist near BTEX and formaldehyde factories…but we WILL find out-eventually.  In just connecting the dots of health complaints I’ve studied in the Barnett Shale, I’m simply horrified.  All this before I found out that we only test for barium in our water supply every nine years and this year we may get a surprise, just like those pharmaceuticals that turned up in our drinking water.  The state of Arlington is that you won’t find what you don’t want to look for.  Here is the story

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
