update On July 22, 2016 the news reported a large fire at Traders Village in Grand Prairie TX and instantly I thought about the close proximity of the Baker Hughes business next door.
I alerted the AFD to make sure they were aware of a possible additional threat should the fire spread in that direction…Baker Hughes supports fracking businesses and they MAY be storing hazmat items.

Original blog was about how Baker Hughes denies washing frack tanks near Traders Village…..
This story speaks of frack tank washing emissions trespassing onto a residential area and breaking up a birthday party.
I also recall at story of a widow whose husband eventually died from exposures from frack tank washing.
If you do a Google Earth satellite image internet search on address 2710 N Forum in Grand Prairie TX you may still see what I feel is compelling evidence, however in response to the TCEQ complaint, they called the City Of Grand Prairie and asked them to investigate.
I received a call from this young sounding lady from the city who said they went out and all they saw was this algae residue and that Baker Hughes says they do not wash vehicles/tanks etc. there.
Guess someone needs to go and test the soil…I have blogged about Colloids and how frack waste fluids leach heavy metals naturally present in the dirt to make frack on crack that can go into our storm water run off.
BTW another Baker Hughes facility on Cooper near the DWF Midstream Arlington Compressor Station smelled really funky and the TCEQ did an investigation but found nothing…again…they never do..this industry is totally pristine and perfect ya know.
Baker Hughes has liquid processing services that also include the removal of the residue left after the reusable components are pulled from the waste stream. They do acid washes, matrix acidizing, or acid fracturing and handle other chemicals like corrosion inhibitors.
