Van Taylor doesn’t live by a drill site, but I got my property values lowered by 31% in Arlington Gasland Texas!

I went before the three member panel to request a reduction in the value off my home citing the nearby gaswell-I won.


Plano Representative, Van Taylor, authored House Bill 1496  and I had to make a video to him in response, and I took the time to include audio clips from an industry person and the Railroad Commission to drive home my points.

When I called Taylor’s office (214 642 0920) to get more information, his staff told me that the HB1496 isn’t stopping cities from restricting drilling (enforcing zoning and setbacks), they just have to compen$ate those minerals owners that wish to exercise their property right$ to develop their FOREGONE mineral$. So the cities that actually enforce zoning laws (with Home Rule authority) need to have big pocket books to pay off forgone royalites (so mostly rich people would be able to afford to not get fracked!).

Taylor’s staff deferred my air quality issues on urban drilling related to this proposed housebill to the RRC and TCEQ. I address “that” deficient as well in this video.

I told Taylor’s guy that the primary purpose of a homestead/residential area is to NOT be in an unhealthy industrialized area…those folks who buy property with other agendas to develop minerals needs to buy land in rural areas…this is a no brainer.

In this video, the first phone call with me shows an industry (non-Chesapeake) official commenting on a drill site being close to the Cowboys Stadium, the other is a Railroad Commission employee commenting on his experience with rural drilling flowbacks only. I point out where the EPA misses a critical phase between fracking and connecting to the pipeline called “inital flowback” and how these fluids under pressure venting BTEX into OPEN hatch tanks are no better than flowing back into open pits like in rural drilling.  This bill conflicts with these two state 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.===============================­===========

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.
