(at least wait to get to just before the 3 minute mark-speed up the video if you don’t have time to watch the full six minutes)
I understand this finishing process happens everywhere that there is NOT a pipeline, separator and sales meter connected to a new pad site at least for the initial well…is this true? Why doesn’t our new ordinance demand “green completions during fracking and flowback?”
Mr Finans owns his own FLIR camera and uses his gas mask when he captures these events in the northeast. He has told us he would come to our Barnett Shale and film…I’ll ask him to start with Arlington wells.
And for kicks I’ve have him start at the Dalworthington Compressor Station and the Eden/Harris Compressor Station just to see what we are getting 24/7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQPOZ3dsyV8&feature=plcp&context=C3e193a4UDOEgsToPDskKzE8E5TQM_z7Efvnt7SV6X
I have every reason to be a concerned citizen breathing unregulated, multiple, cumulative emissions of BTEX and fracking chemicals along with NORM and other heavy metals exposures. God only knows what this is doing to our surface run off and ground waters. I bet He’ll (God) let us find out the hard way because our local government, TCEQ, Railroad Commission and local EPA avoids becoming set up to do appropriate water testing that requires lab analysis that actually LOOKs for drilling effluents. This is because it is expensive$$ and not required per the exemptions from the Clean Water Act. Our tax dollars at work on water testing only looks for chlorides and the usual pre-drilling screening tests of old.
Two drilling sites in Arlington were flooded in the last few months JUST AFTER FRACKING and those fluids should ALWAYS be lab tested before allowing them to go into our storm water drainage ditches!
All of the air emissions fallout seen in this video have to go somewhere…into our gardens, feedstock, soil, waterways, Lake Arlington, our lungs, our children’s lungs…we are truly fracked and need a moratorium and a plan to plug every well and deal with the lawsuits from the drillers the best way we know how….claim false advertisement that endangers the public. The truth will set you and us free. Please help me save what is left of livable Arlington.
