UTA Dino Diggers asked to provide info on alleged buried jet fuel tanks near Viridian Arlington

RIP Derek J. Main, as featured in this video, who led the Arlington Archosaur Site dig.
If anyone that participated in the UTA Dino Dig near the Viridian project has any information regarding alleged buried Jet Fuel Tanks, or if anyone has info on the actual remediation and clean up, please email me so I can update this story, thanks.

Tony Tennant wrote of this aerial pic of the AAS dino dig site on FB … “Used to pass by people noodling catfish out of some of those tanks down there, riding by on bicycle, waving and grinning.”

update 9/1/2013 spoke to Irving area resident who has lived north of the site since the 1970’s and he said there are 10 ft round, spill looking dead zone ares that nuthn’ grows in…this is east of Birds Fort.
I made a video of concern in the Viridian project a while back. there was two natural gas pad sites in that area that were plugged and abandonded that concerned me even before I heard about the alleged buried jet fuel tanks.

I am trying to find a list of underground, unremediated jet fuel storage tanks in the area of the Viridian project In Arlington. I am trying to verify if any Underground Storage Tanks preceeded your 1996 Approval Program and still remain.  A guy from the dino dig in that area told me of them allegedly still buried there.  Unfortunately, the person who told me this may be the UTA dig lead guy who was found deceased in a home accident….we are still awaiting the coroners report.
Here is a map of the addresses…you can see how some homes have already been built and more are planned to the north of Blue Lake Blvd just to the east of Collins St
Per the The Arlington Archosaur Site dissertation document….
“The AAS is situated in a field, south of Trinity Blvd and east of South Main St at the intersection of Calloway Cemetery Rd. and Main. The fossils occur on a hillside where the Woodbine Formation is exposed in outcrops facing south. AAS coordinates: N 32 ̊48.635 and W 097 ̊ 04.757″
Derek J Main  RIP
RIP Derek Main … you touched so many lives.

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.

    There are no aviation storage tanks on this land. The black area you described is in fact a burn area that was caused by a tractor mowing. I personally observed the drilling and the cleanup of the pad sites and in my opinion this was handled correctly. I have heard nothing from any of the things you are talking about the land from the crew of Arlington Archosaur Site. Thanks Art
