Three people dead…contaminated water after fracking

1. Chris Mobaldi RIP

The Butler County story is extremely sad…..Kim McEvoy wrote her governor “Since the fracking and flaring have begun, the air quality has deteriorated. We can’t play outside without getting a headache or a sore throat”. Kim’s neighbor, Janet McIntyre,   reported……

2. “One man died just over a week ago.  According to Janet McIntyre, Kim’s neighbor, the man, Mr. Dennis Peterson, 49, had reported last September that he had ‘rashes all over his body,’ and he was diagnosed with leukemia by December. The cause of death has not been confirmed independently as of this writing. While leukemia is associated with volatile organic chemicals,  in particular benzene; and volatile organic chemicals abound in association with gas drilling — moving through air and water, while benzene also multiplies due to the sudden heavy industrialization and increase in truck traffic — it may be difficult to know whether the man’s rashes, failing health and death were directly caused by gas drilling in the area.”

Half way through the story, you are prompted to click on the related story where one of Janet’s three dogs died.  Her other two dogs refused to drink the water and are still alive. But before the graphic details of the death of Janet’s dog she reported, “Before they (Janet’s daughter) were allowed to complete the adoption process, they were required to have their well water tested. Results from a 2004 test showed their water was in good condition.”

 “On the evening of January 23, 2011, Janet and her family (including her two grown children and grandchildren) had dinner together, the meal having been prepared using tap water pumped from her well. In the middle of the night, Janet received a frantic call from her daughter whose nine-month old baby was projectile vomiting and had diarrhea running out of her diaper and down her legs. By the next day, Janet and her husband woke up feeling ill and started projectile vomiting as well.

Janet’s and her husband’s achiness, nausea and bouts of vomiting persisted for a week. During this time, she also received a call from her son who was experiencing the same symptoms. On the night of January 29 into the early hours of January 30, Fred went into the kitchen to get a glass of water, and turned on the faucet to discover the water was foaming. He tested the bathroom sink, the tub and the toilet and all three also produced foamy, soapy-feeling water.

The next day, a friend brought Janet and Fred several gallons of bottled water. Their health only started to improve after about a day of drinking the bottled water.”

The only thing different in these people’s lives was that drilling came in and their well water went bad.

The other indirect death, Carl Stiles, was a suicide…..he ended the life that was taken from him because he was in agony with health effects from drinking his contaminated water. 

There are other fracking related deaths but these are not air and water alleged related….Death in Marcellus Shale Country stories.

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.

    This was the most boring and made up story i ever read. Make up something a little more believable next time please! Sincerly Frac Rat

    camp thurman shouldn’t be attached to this post. You know this is just another way to try to get people to read your posts and it is not ethical to attach something unrelated to a post that has nothing to do with the topic!

    About Kim Triolo Feil, your comment above reminded me of how eager the uk government is to push a “new” style of fracking thru.
    they are cutting subsidies to wind and wave energy (they probably dont have investments in it) by saying its dangerous! and ugly! and much much lies and rubbish (taking advantage of the majorities lack of clean knowledge in the matter), and have already changed historical laws of trespassing to make it ILLEGAL for people to complain if frackers mine under their land or property!!!!!
    it gets sicker and sicker
