I have blind copied three other people from Arlington who have personally attested to have been sickened by these drill sites’ noxious odors. I myself had to drive through a white sewery odor near an active drill site by the highway a few weeks ago and was coughing uncontrollably and had other health effects. Even 20 minutes later, I couldn’t finish my sentences.Just this morning at 7:20 am at Cooper and Division, I witnessed a huge, black, tall, sustained plume of smoke and recognized that it wasn’t a fire, but was probably a drilling rig’s exhaust.

Chesapeake makes these claims because they are cutting corners and are not using the latest technology available. Please let me know if you are interested in hearing from a scientist regarding what flowback can contain. I can set up a conference call.Continuing to ignore this issue is irresponsible and harms the citizens in Arlington. The longer these problems are ignored, the stronger the opposition grows. In my experience, people are not unreasonable. They only want some expectation that they will not be sickened from these chemicals.–=== EARTHWORKS: Protecting Communities and the EnvironmentSharon Wilson, Organizer
