If you think it is drilling related, first call 911 if you are experiencing health effects and get out of the affected area but be aware that cell phones and cars can ignite gases. Please note you may be sending first responders into a dangerous situation as their QRAE 4 gas finder does not screen for benzene and other known drilling effluents.
If it is not an emergency and you want it to go on public record and open an investigation, can the non-emergency Arlington police/fire dept. line at 817 274-4444.
Next, if urgent, call TCEQ (state agency) at 817 588-5800 and ask for someone in the Barnett Shale division. They should come out within 12 hours and BTEX test the air, but they do not test for methane, methanol, carbon disulfide, formaldehyde and other known (& unknown fracking chemicals) associated with gas mining and production.
If not urgent, call the National EPA hotline”Eyes On Drilling” at 877 919-4372 (who will contact TCEQ for you, but at least it puts this on the federal record log).
Please also follow up by alerting the Arlington city gas well department at 817 459-6661. If you want to involve the local EPA (highly recommended, call 214 665-7270), however they do not have the manpower or enough vehicles to come out right away.
Heads up, in my experience, no body ever finds out anything..U R on your own unless you hire $$ your own independent air tester. I recommend Dr Alisa Rich at 682-502-6056. If she detects harmful things in your air shed, only then will the TX Dept. of Health want to get involved and they are at 512 834-6770.
PS it’s always a good idea to involve WFAA8 media at 214 748-9631 if they are interested..too bad Chesapeake is their customer.”
