Back on the City of Arlington’s 2001 Drinking Water Report we only reported one detectable radioactive effulent called Beta/Photon Emitters.
But in 2004, we added Gross Alpha Particles AND Radium 228.
Look at the photos of my recent blog of a produced water spill that could impact Richland Chambers Reservoir, which is where we pipe in our water into Lake Arlington.
Those pictures show the sheer volume of fracking holes that have gone through our water tables. This buildout looks like that whole area has been drilled out for quite some time now….I wonder how long it takes for a surface spill or a bad casing to get into our water supplies which are then piped into our drinking water source here in the Dallas Ft Worth area?
AND NOW the Seaway Pipeline started carrying a probably tarsands like oil through a repurposed pipeline. They reversed the flow’s direction. This TOO is a threat (spill?) to both the Cedarcreek (leak?) AND Richland Chambers Reservoirs (HELP!) that supply much of the DFW with their drinking water….a lone commentor for this Reuters story wrote in regards to when the nasty stuff arrives to be refined…
“Houston’s air has always been polluted as the oil companies release their hazardous waste into the air at 3am.
Now with the rush of greed, their lies a larger cloud smelling of oil 24 hours a day with more headaches for he children living here.
You smell oil and lead and many other cancer causing chemicals in the air as you drive around this poverty zone filled with police stations, bail bondmen, and kidney dialysis clinics on every corner. This place represents a waste land for anyone willing to come here and witness the destruction of humanity firsthand.
I welcome any environmentalist to witness this at least once in their lives on how not to run a city. All you need to do is smell the cancer causing smells and witness how large a headache you get.”
Here is a link to a 2012 map of pipeline projects.
I hope the crude actally makes it to it’s destination and doesn’t spill or leak/migrate into our drinking water….”hope” is such a helpless feeling kinda word isn’t it?
As far this commentor is concerned he speaks of innocent fenceline folks….he’s not even taking into account the downwinders like you and me…TCEQ posted today….“Thursday 11/14/13
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enoughfor PM2.5 to reach “Moderate” levels in parts of Southeast Texas, mainly near and downwind of LARGE INDUSTRIAL SOURCES and any wildfires….”
Learn more about why the Seaway Pipelines is sooooo bad for DFW drinkers here where they detail which water bodies they pass near or U N D E R!
As usual I’ll post the letter that I sent our water department….

“According to the public map viewer on the Texas Railroad Commission site, the 30″ Seaway pipeline (T4#05161) takes the following route through Texas:
Lake Lavon is a major water source for Dallas. Cedar Creek and Richland Chambers are major sources for Fort Worth and the Tarrant Regional Water District.“
