Notice two drill sites/mud farming? near Seguin Highschool?…hint look under the white box on the top left of this pic…

UPDATE May 2015 on an airshed study for health risks near drilling….
http://oregonstate.edu/ua/ncs/archives/2015/may/fracking-may-affect-air-quality-and-human-health-osu-study-finds “Air pollution from fracking operations may pose an under-recognized health hazard to people living near them,” said the study’s coauthor Kim Anderson, an environmental chemist with OSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences.”

Subject: SEGUIN High AISD student/staff abuse report #366 new info on mudfarming risk
What info can I get on what the city or the schools are doing to identify risks from nearby potential urban land farming to our water and airborne particulate risks?
I wonder if ANY OF YOU agree with the authors on this study in all the loopholes the feds have on raidonuclides associated with TENORM generated from mining oil and gas?
This is the blog I worked on today based on that Barnett Shale study… what about SEGUIN High school students and staff…?
Thank you

Subject: AISD student/staff abuse report #366 new video to add regarding MISD
It has been over a year with no follow up on this AISD complaint (#366).  Last November my son and some area schools participated in an All Region choir performance that lasted all day with a performance in the evening. I blogged about the close proximity that drilling and compression activities are to the MISD Performing Arts Center and took some erie pictures. I also video taped some bubbles in the parking lot. The following week NBCDFW did a story on bubbles flying into the neighborhood from this drill site.
I complained to the TCEQ and to the RRC because I was concerned the students were downwind to flow back toxins from the OPEN HATCH storage tanks blowing towards them. The RRC confirmed there was effulents coming off the flowback tanks that they like to call “steam” but is really hydrocarbons and can contain NORM, BTEX, heavy metals, and any chemical treatments introduced into the well.
A month earlier when they were flowing back the well, they were caught in a violation in not using Best Available emission control technology.
Please view this infrared video taken by TCEQ …. http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UU_gCB3oHq5ixAaTcJFDsXmA&v=i1dJ-jX2aM4 of the Woodland Estates West site near the MISD facility.
This video is EVIDENCE that emissions are occurring dangerously close to this state of the art MISD facility that AISD students attended that day/evening.
 
Please let me know if I need to file a new complaint with AISD, or if this new development can be added to the existing complaint #366 that I am demanding follow up on.
 
For the MISD personnel copied on this email, please consider this email to be my formal complaint. Please have someone contact me to verify this letter is entered into public record or if I have to fill out a form, thank you.

As a physicist and chemical engineer (retired) who lives within 1200
ft of a gas drilling pad, and as a technical expert in oil and gas
drilling and production technology, I am appalled that the industry
has gotten away with technology that releases methane and other
naturally produced volatile compounds into the atmosphere and is
permitted to claim successfully that more protection is not needed.The state of the art includes ways to make these systems closed cycle
operations with no deliberate emissons. Public health safeguards
against these emissions are an imperative.Public health and, indeed, the survival of life on this planet depend
on hard-nosed resistance to industry deception in this matter.Demand closed cycle operation.Jerry J.Lobdill

UPDATE there has been no more followup or response on this report filed, but here is MY response to their ignoring addressing this issue…its a video (see above)…yep ten whopping minutes of drill sites near schools along the 360 corridor….wow… imagine how long the video would be if I did the whole AISD school district mapping of schools near drill sites!

Will AISD have lockdown or evacuation drills related to nearby gas well emergencies?

Will AISD put pressure on City Council to enforce emission controls in our ordinance?

Subject: Drilling near students complaint on AISD Fraud, Waste and Abuse Report #366

Mr. Edwards, thank you for your response. Today I did speak with Cindy Powell on this topic and will share with you our recorded conversation on this youtube video link
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NqgVJgc_a4  so that this exchange is made available to you.
            Originally Ms Powell returned my call from an unrelated air quality complaint of construction cement particulate blowing at the students during dismissal. So she was not prepared time wise for this topic, nor was she aware that I legally taped her. She repeated the same responses to me on earlier conversations-so nothing new has been in the works on student shale safety since my concerns from when my son was at Bailey Junior High when I filmed this.  Recently the wells near Bailey have been spewing this.
            Across from Hutchinson Jr High last April and May there was 2 emission events and the fire department’s incident report speaks of an additional unit needed while another truck followed a 3 block wide cloud into the neighborhoods.
            In this conversation with Ms Powell about emergency protocols, we ran out of time and I was about to expound on the need to lock down during emission events but also to lock down during the the active, intensive, pre-production and maintenance phases that include…
1) site prep, (unless using CNG or LNG fueled vehicles)
2) drilling,  (unless using electric drilling rigs) 
3) fracturing,(unless using ATMOS gas to power engines during fracturing AND  “effectively” containing flying silica dust)  
4) flowback,  (unless using ventless, pressurized flowback tanks) 
5) connecting to pipeline,(AISD needs to push City Council to mandate Green Completions equipment incase second tier drillers buy out Chesapeake)
6) workovers that may occur in between these phases AND after the well is in production because hydrochloric acid is what I read is the preferred chemical to use.
7) lift compressors added to older wells (unless electric and blowdowns are directed to the saleslines with the excess pressure/gas going to the storage tanks that are equipped with vapor recovery systems during those blowdowns)
            I also did not get a chance to tell Ms Powell about a doctor who coincidently agrees with my urging to not be downwind to the active drill site phases. Here is more info on that doctor…
*DR. Cowden’s advice to Ohioans: If there is drilling within a half-mile that youngsters should be kept away as much as possible to minimize exposure to as many as 78 toxic chemicals in the air, says Cowden, who lives in Loudonville in Ashland County and works for the Knox County Health Department.
            The Denton Chronicle reported last February that “The Fort Worth school district requires 1,200 feet between schools and gas wells when the district is leasing minerals,”
            I ask you to form an AISD action plan drilling task force of experts to include myself and move forward in this fashion or at least urge City Council to enforce Best Emission Control Technologies in their ordinance.
            Thank you for your considerations as you discuss my claim of student and staff abuse in being made to co-exist near gas wells since a health and environmental impact study was never done prior to allowing urban drilling in Arlington, thank you.

Greetings Ms. Feil,
This is to acknowledge receipt of your Fraud, Waste and Abuse report through the Arlington Independent School District reporting system.  I have performed a preliminary review/assessment of the issues you present, and have determined that your concerns are outside the scope of our Fraud, Waste and Abuse function.  More importantly, the technical areas that concern you are well outside the expertise within the Internal Audit Department; therefore, the best course of action will be for me to share your report with the Board of Trustees Audit Advisory Committee in February.
Thank you for your interest in improving the Arlington Independent School District.
Sincerely,
Tim Edwards
Chief Internal Auditor
Arlington Independent School District

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.

    I agree the harm is done, but we should
    learn from it, and ask for 1 mile setback from schools, daycares,
    parks, playgrounds – no exceptions for any reason.”
