Mansfield Davis Elementary School is 880 feet east of the Arlington Compressor Station, a high impact industrial site.Last year, the Ft Worth League of Neighborhoods presented to FWISD a report that said a one mile setback is needed as a setback for schools from emissions.My questions are…1) Do you recall discussing if this compressor station would impact the staff or students with the close proximity?2) Who was responsible for responding to Arlington officials of your concerns?3) Going forward, how will you monitor that there are not any health effects being realized?————————————————————————–School District:This property is located in the jurisdiction of the Mansfield Independent School District (MISD). The MISD did not indicate that the proposal will have any impact to MISD.

RE: Public Records Request for Arlington Compressor Station-7007 S. Cooper St. records
Dear Feil Kim,
…..The Gas Well Team inspects for landscaping and screening issues at the Compressor Station. We also utilize our equipment to inspect the area for possible leaks and damage; however, we do not keep a record of these inspections due to the fact that this jurisdiction falls upon the State of Texas. If a problem was found during our investigation we would have to contact the appropriate state authority to come and investigate the matter further.I hope this clarifies the matter at hand.As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me, Collin Gregory/Gas Well Coordinator, at either my office email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or at my office telephone number: 817-459-6593.

10 steps to Safer Drilling
I live at ground zero for urban drilling.
We have about 60 padsites in our 99 sq mile town here in Arlington TX.
Our state and local governement will not enforce these two laws....
1) TEX LG. CODE ANN. A§ 253.005 : Texas Statutes – Section 253.005: LEASE OF OIL, GAS, OR MINERAL LAND
“(c) A well may not be drilled in the thickly settled part of the municipality..”
2. Texas Administrative Code, Title 30, Part 1, Chapter 101, Subchapter A,
Rule 101.4, Environmental Quality, Nuisance
No person shall discharge from any source whatsoever one or more
air contaminants or combinations thereof, in such concentration and
of such duration as are or may tend to be injurious to or to adversely
affect human health or welfare, animal life, vegetation, or property, or
as to interfere with the normal use and enjoyment of animal life, vegetation, or property.
We had a drill spill in Lake Arlington, our drinking source, a couple of years ago. We also have about 100 drilling laterals under our lake that are at migration risk for seismic events and or cement failures.
We have had maybe a dozen gas release emission events over the last few years that I am aware of.
The following are the items lacking in our URBAN oil and gas drilling ordinance….................
1. Use electric rigs & and use nondiesel compressors and fracking and lift compressors and compressor stations (but do not use field DIRTY GAS). Blowdowns of compressors whose excess goes to the storage tanks should have Vapor Recovery Systems rather than venting.
2. Video tape ALL cement casing pours when it comes back up to the top through the annulus so that there is proof of an even pour and ensure all wells have electric bond log tests.
3. All drilling mud farming (private & commercial) and brine “road spraying” should routinely test soil and shallow ground water for toxins.

4. We need the industry to invent technology to keep the toxic, silica dust on the padsite-those pathetic pillow case looking socks aren’t getting the job done. Ban the use of Hydroflouric Acid.
5. Mandate ventless, emission free flowback tanks by using pressurized flowback tanks instead of open hatch frack tanks....
6. Global Warming isn't waiting 2.5 years for the EPA mandated Green Completions equipment.... no venting ...wait for the pipeline. Ensure condensers are used on glycol units.
7. The pipeline should be in place FIRST before fracturing so that flowback doesn’t sit in the ground for months festering bacterial sulfide growth to sour and damage the well and sicken people.....
8. The setback away from people should be substantial. Rural method drilling is not acceptable in urban areas. An environmental tester who has a Phd said that the health effects are being seen downwind from about 1,800 – 2,500 feet. Local and state gov. need to test for methane leaks with FLIR cameras.
9. Have zero tolerance for underinspected, or faked Waste Disposal Injection Well casing pressure tests. Don't risk eventual migration of toxic fluids into our drinking supplies.....
10. State entities overseeing oil and gas should regulate how close old wells are to new wells....
Lets elect officials that will ensure a protective Oil & Gas Drilling oversight. This is in our “collective” power so we must all become active to be proactive because reactive measures are too costly.
