Four days away From Fracking by Cowboy Stadium in low income neighborhood Arlington TX

 

This morning I cried as I felt helpless for my neighborhood who has no choice but to endure the high impact mining industry in our once quiet, historic neighborhood. My hundred year old home will be near up to 75,000 lbs of chemicals needed for the up to 20 million gallons of fresh water forever wasted for fracking for natural gas. I had to act once more….so I went back to First United Methodist Church in protest of their passive agressiveness in not helping me get this drill site to the east side of Collins at Division St (where former Councilman Leblanc said that was too expensive of a piece of land to put an “eye sore” on).

One of the members this morning in my protest walk said that FUMC did NOT sign their minerals here and walked away from a $60,000 signing bonus.

Indeed former Councilman Patrick, who has been a life long member there, has gone on record the night of the infamous vote in saying that his church deserved to enjoy the royalties as the reason he was going to “MOVE TO APPROVE” drilling near there.

Prior to that vote, I was denied a special meeting where I asked the FUMC board to respond on this issue. Emails and a hand deliverd letter have gone unresponded thus far….if indeed they never signed away their mineral rights….then Councilman Patrick moved to approve something his church never wanted.

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.
