Envir Tester Ph.D Master Public Health on Fracking & Flowback Emissions Fallout Distance 1,800 – 2,500 feet of the downwind effect

I changed the voice mode to keep this doctor anonymous in this phone conversation/video….. At first I recorded this because I’m a lousy note taker and hate to make people repeat things…but then I recognized the value of this information to the general public…and so I share…without permission, so I hid the voice.

In the first four minutes she was talking about flowback phase emissions (steam/white coud/particulates), but I was confused and thought we were talking about fracking phase sand/silica invisible (radioactive) dust emissions. Anyways take a listen…thanks for listening.

Here is yet another doctor writing…..

“I have worked in this community for 30 years and I’m very cognizant of the respiratory disease issues that will be compounded by the addition of these emissions to the atmosphere,”

The “potential to emit” amounts of sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and other chemicals that may be released at the sites can vary, depending on the type of operations involved, according to legal advertisements posted by Chesapeake….Chesapeake confirmed the potential to discharge various amounts of these materials on an annual basis from their compressor operations: carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, methane, carbon dioxide equivalent, benzene and formaldehyde. There will also be various amounts of volatile organic compounds, particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, acetaldehyde, acrolein, ethylbenzene, methanol, n-hexane, toluene, xylenes and nitrous oxide.

“In particular, carbon monoxide of 40.28 tons per year will be produced by this well pad. This is of grave concern because the exposure to respiratory disease and creation of the ozone layer are toxic to lung disease,”

If the CDC is worried about the oil and gas workers, so then who is worrying about the residents nearby?

“There is little, existing information regarding occupational health risks for chemical and mineral exposures to workers in the extraction and production industry.

As part of the NIOSH Field Effort to Assess Chemical Exposure Risks to Oil and Gas Workers, NIOSH will partner with industry to better understand occupational exposures and possible health risks to workers by investigating the variety and magnitude of chemical exposure risks and routes of exposures that may be hazardous to workers. To determine the degree or absence of health risks, NIOSH researchers will conduct field-based exposure assessment studies to identify, characterize, and (if needed) control workplace chemical exposures. The goals of this NIOSH field effort are threefold:

  1. Understand workplace operations and identify processes, materials and activities where chemical exposures could occur;
  2. Characterize potential exposures to vapors, gases, dusts and particulates, elements (metals), and fumes; and
  3. Depending on research outcomes (and if needed), develop recommended safe work practices and/or exposure controls such as ventilation engineering, product substitution, modifications to work practices, and/or appropriate use of personal protective equipment.”

worried about frack sand…we all should be!

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.
