Mystery Rash for Arlington TX Resident near Fracking GM

UPDATE another lady with a similar rash video….


On Sat May18, 2013 Arlington held a city wide garage sale at 1400 Dugan Street near General Motors and their two Chesapeake gas well padsites. A woman who lived nearby complained about her mysterious, untreatable rash.

In 2011, GM had 657 tons per year of contaminants reported to TCEQ which by the way equates to 5,211 pounds of ozone per day. GM does not include the pollution from the Chesapeake padsites on their state annual emissions inventory. Adding gaswells near this “high density of humans” area adds to the mix of (additional) unregulated multiple, cummulative emissions wafting to Six Flags and the stadiums in our Entertainment District.

I pleaded with our City Council to not approve the permit for the gas wells at GM and near the Cowboys Stadium because the area was already filled with pollution from the GM plant and nearby paint shops, but all they want is the drilling revenue money so I can logically say that all we R is jus’ a bunch of guinea pigs to them.


Oh did I mention my own teen got rashes last January when they were finishing the gas wells near the Cowboy’s Stadium which happened to be at the same time my husbands lymph nodes started swelling in his neck? Here’s a pic or two…

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.

    Clean Energy Foundation from Poland ensure sustainability of investments related to exploration of conventional, unconventional gas & oil, renewable energy sources in an environmental, social and legal context in Europe. Our mission consist primarily on monitoring development of extraction projects.

    European shale gas extraction is only in its infancy and Poland is now at the beginning on track for better methods in gas extraction but is one of a few country from the UE in which work goes on continuously.

    With respect to the explorations and the extraction of various minerals we are the only organization of such type in Poland.

    Clean Energy Foundation prepared also the Report about Unconventional Gas in Poland Report, concerning legal, environmental and social aspects in Poland.

    In order to more information about the mission and objectives of the Foundation, please visit website at and Facebook profile

  2. TO ALL Please help Kim track these unexplainable health problems . Asthma , respiratory reactions , nose bleeds , vibro accoustic sypmtoms ( ringing in ears, depression, sleeplessness etc ) espe cially near gas compressors. These health risks are mounting.
    Kim, it is so unfortunate that our city leaders in North Texas would rather see the revenue than be concerned about the mounting health and safety risk to it’s residents. Until catastrophe comes, or people start leaving these cities in mass, or lower tax valuations because those homes closest to drilling sell for 1/3 their value leaving them with low tax base that will not fill the coffers to run their cities. Fort Worth estimates of royalties from their gas sins already has dropped from 1.5 billion dollars over 10 to 15 years to maybe 300 million. Residents with that Beverly Hillbilly syndrome who leased rather than “Just Say NO ” get maybe $100.00 per year royalties to sell out their neighborhoods and now are disenchanted. Maybe our next plan of attack is to stir people desirous of moving to Metroplex Barnett Shale to safer grounds for their own good ? Kim you are one of the heroines.
