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″
RIP Derek Main … you touched so many lives.
