Report Description


To simulate how I obtained the photos….

  1. click on the NCR report above, and
  2. click on the satellite of the map, and
  3. zoom in to see the production site,
  4. then go west to be horrified at the sheer magnitude of all the padsites/earth holes/pincushion, then
  5. go north along I45 to see the Richland Chambers Reservoir.

Unknown is how long before all the surface and subsurface longterm spills and water migration patterns of fossil fuel mining and production will affect our drinking water although I suspect it already has

No joke though, this is a HORRORable thing to have happened on Halloween at the Adams (family?) site….I’ll email our city water director this link so he is informed.

The name Anadarko reminds me of doomsday ridden Donnie Darko…no joke there either.

Here’s a Happy Belated Halloween video for you complete with costumes during a survey off what folks thought of Fossil Fuel Sponcered Green Energy attempts…..


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.

  1. so, is the recent switch to the benbrook lake reservoir a result of this spill? Our water here in arlington tastes terrible the last few days. they are giving out the official reason as the switch to benbrook and the addition of geosmin in our water, due to the weather being cold since this a naturally-occurring bacteria, and commonly attributed to the ‘wet dirt’ smell after a rainstorm. Hmmm, i say. the water tastes bad. This all smells fishy to me.
