Arlington Emission Event By Daycare & Jr High could have been avoided with Batteries

UPDATE… Jan 2015 I found this video footage I took in attempting to interview someone who unfortunately has to work near that darn drill site.

It was just a few months ago (last Q of 2014) that I saw a black smoke plume over that drill site, but by the time I got to it, it had dissipated.


The April 17th’s event “….backup acoustical shutdown system failed to actuate due to an apparant theft of batteries” was noted on TCEQ incident report#169246. Too bad the drillers did not have to report to TCEQ because the releases did not go over 5,000 lbs which those RQ (Reportable Quantities) rules were written when drilling was NOT in urban areas.

Subject: hydrocloric acid story that firefighters had to respond to a frack truck emission event / Arlington Rice drillsite

Two things here….this link is about a chemical cloud that reduced visibility to null that people were running from….
The other thing is a follow up report that I asked TCEQ to do an investigation on the two emission events at the Rice drillsite (across from Hutchinson Jr Hi).
The April 17th’s event “….backup acoustical shutdown system failed to actuate due to an apparant theft of batteries” was noted on TCEQ incident report#169246….please let me know if you can add that item to your check list when visiting drill sites, thanks.  Too bad the drillers did not have to report this to TCEQ because the release did not go over 5,000 lbs (which those reportable amount rules were written when drilling was NOT in urban areas I’m sure).
When will we update our laws for urban drilling to be protective of public health?  Two fire trucks went out on this Arlington Rice drill site call where one followed a white cloud that went into the neighborhood (that was described as being almost three blocks in size).  Wasn’t that in itself enough to ask TCEQ to get out there asap to take an air sample?
It takes one person to call TCEQ…why didn’t Collin make that call?……cause he is to protect the industry? Why didn’t a fireman make the call? I have asked for suma canisters to be standard on our fire trucks…..it is too convenient to NOT have any evidence of potential harm isn’t it?
Whats it gonna take to make drilling safe near people? Carrizo is saying that the Rice site released 1,468 lbs and 1,559 lbs in those two separate events.  Recall the daycare backs up to that site ya’ll.  Here is my first video I did on this subject matter (drilling by Day Cares)…..

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.
