Will FBI see Arlington’s leadership inconsistantly using state exemptions on Brownfields clean up while also exploiting federal funds on others?

Heres another gaswell in Arlington borne by the luv of a small c Christian church that d-RIP Gene Patrick would be oh so proud of.

Compliments of the corrupt State of Texas, Arlington requests MSD exemptions for “some” properties to never be cleaned up, but offers federal money to “others” interested in applying for the grant funding…isn’t that called “eco-terrorism”?

Subject: MSD verses EPA Brownfields grant money 

I noticed the wording on the city blog where the EPA awarded Arlington $400K  where it states “…the City connects property owners or developers to much-needed capital to make sure the site is properly assessed for contaminants and, if necessary, create a cleanup plan.”  (I boldfaced for emphasis)
I have seen our City Council vote to allow Municipal Setting Designations for known ground water pollution be excused by the state TCEQ from ever cleaning up their mess in the name of **developing the property for an economic benefit rather than MAKING the owners or the prior owners clean it up.
This has the appearance of Arlington officials caring about Brownfields clean up ONLY if its on the government’s dime?
I wonder why the city care$ now ? especially when the gas wells in urban areas may need that money in the future as indicated on the above photo here.
I first learned about and blogged on our MSD program when the MSD12-1 about 600-1,000 feet from my house was approved by our City Council.
Is it just a coincidence that husband has cancer?
Is it also a coincidence that my teen’s medical testing is abnormal (he has high Vanillylmandelic Acid levels, & low Absolute Lymphocytes).
I wonder if our health issues (yeah me, my other son, and my bird all have asthma) may be related to living near drilling by the Cowboy’s Stadium two blocks from our home, if its been a longer term exposure of being downwind from the UTA and GM gas wells, or if its been a chronic exposure of living downwind to GM all these years?
Naturally I blame everything on (unproven safe) Urban Drilling, but I thought I’d give some credit to the toxic General Motors down the street, and to our long gone, dirty ol’ old gasoline stations that our leadership seems to flip flop about cleaning up as long as its either making them money or not costing them money.
Has the thought ever crossed your mind that the FBI needs to investigate eco-terrorism by our elected officials?

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..”

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.


I wonder why the city blog “forgot” to mention about MSD’s?

I wonder how the 402 E Division property by my home on Elm St  got left out and became one of the MSD’s that was exempted from clean up?

Here is the current list of Arlington’s Brownfields Advisory Committee Members….

1. Kris Landrith, Landrith & Kulesz, Downtown Arlington Management Corporation (DAMC)
2. Glenn Troutman, West Citizen Action Network (WeCAN)

3. Sue Phillips, East Arlington Renewal

4. Pat Struble, Community Watch/Citizens on Patrol (CW/COP), Southeast Arlington

5. Joe Bruner, ACTION North

6. Michael Forbes, MIF Construction Management

7. Dan Fernandez, D Fernandez & Associates

8. Steven George, Green Star Environmental

9. Glen Dixon, Citizens Environmental Committee

10. John Darling, Arlington Conservation Council

11. Alma Martinez, North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG)

12. Robert Knezek, Southwest Action Team (SWAT)

13. Chris Boehle, General Motors

14. Larry Wallace, Peyco Southwest Realty, Arlington Chamber of Commerce

I wonder if any of these folks care that gas well sites are now included on the list of future potential sites needing federal funding or state blessings from clean up when we are sitting on $80 million in gas drilling revenues?

**On page 2 here is an excerpt….. “Council discussed agenda items 6 and 7 regarding the MSDs requested by Terracon Consultants. City of Arlington Deputy City Manager Bob Byrd came before (Pantego) Council to present Arlington’s position on MSDs. Mr Byrd stated that the City of Arlington feels that approving the MSDs are beneficial to economic development. He stated that the MSDs that have come before Arlington’s Council previously for approval have had exhaustive research performed on the ground in the vicinity of each location and each underground plume is well documented. The City of Arlington agrees that leaving pollution sitting underground is undeserible but they would rather see developed property than empty fields.

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.
