Hey Harris Finley & Bogle gas industry protectors…   I  C  U  !

I wonder how understaffed TXDOT and USDOT is in enforcing what little regulations there are on some brine hauling and other radioactive waste around?

…A funny thing (NOT) happened along the way to Denton…. AGAIN (see the final paragraph of this post for how we got fracked the last time we traveled to Denton) 

Yesterday we were on the way to the “Ban Fracking (in Denton) Petition Porch Party” and I saw that this truck company is not doing too good in keeping their load…AGAIN 

Turns out this is the SAME TRUCK (#124) from last month as identified in both videos!


Salty brine fluid is bad for our roads.

Spilling toxic, radioactive, chemically & BTEX ladened fluids is harmful to our lungs, storm water runoff/crops, pets, chickens, cattle etc ….any questions?

Here is the April 4 2014 vid truck brine spill that involved health effects claimed….

Below is the video I took on May 4 2014, which I felt like I had to keep clearing my throat afterwards.

And here is a south Texas spill job….

As usual below are the related emails (I bold faced for emphasis) for the world and the attorneys (and the fraidy frackers too) to see …this is cheaper than Open Record$ Request$ too.

Looks like the Ft Worth city attorney needs to be informed that their 911 dispatch or their gas drilling dept called the truck company to pull their own guy over….I wished they would have gotten txDOT to pull him over so that a ticket could have been issued! Geesh-this is yet another example of how the local gov works for the drilling industry! But at least he was stopped fast!

I called 3 Star and I gave her the time and location and she asked me if I called (yesterday) and I said “no” and she said someone called them and they found that driver and pulled him over immediately. I asked if he got a ticket and she “we pulled him over not DOT”. She said the driver didn’t know it was stuck and that “it” wasn’t completely closed, but that the managers have delt with him. I was thanked and she encouraged us to continue to call them as “we do not know what is going on in the back of the trucks when we’re driving”.

I wished 911 would have gotten DOT to pull them over instead of calling them…now no one is issuing them a ticket…!!

Re: Gas Production water being drained

Ms. Feil,

I can assure you that I know who I work for. There is no attempt by me, as the City Attorney, or City staff to shift any responsibility the City has to the State. City staff, including the Gas Division and the Police Department, is investigating this issue to determine the best and most effective entity to address the release of this material.

Subject: happened again w/3star daylighting truck yesterday Re: Gas Production water being drained

We were on our way to the Denton petition drive porch party yesterday on Sunday 5/4 (that channel 11 covered last night) and I took this footage at 820 and I35…he kept going westbound and we took I35 n towards Flowermound/Argyle. I called 911 and have no idea if they caught up to him to ticket him…this was around 12:23. The 911 operator transferred me to Ft Worth 911 call center. Those gaskets wear out fast…they need to replace them more often…with ozone eating rubber…this summer will be a brine loser to the roads and run off 4 sure! I expect Ft Worth and Arlington city officials to figure out a way to protect us from this industry…please let me know how you plan to do this…I have concerns that the trip log tickets are NOT being verified at the injection well disposal sites for amts that left the pad sites to HAVE to match up to the amounts upon arrival for injection. If they don’t match up a spill report is in order.

This is a public health issue that no one is addressing…it must be initiated through HOME RULE laws cause we cannot wait every two years for the legislature to convine only to toss out any regs for the oil and gas industry.

Any amount of Benzene and NORM is not in the interest of public health…no spill is too small when these carcinogens are concerned.

Ref  April 4 video of brine spilling on Barnettshale roadway in Ft Worth…

I have searched for ways to find out who is gatekeeping the amt of brine that leaves a site to match up with what is rec’d at injection company…TCEQ Yvette Vaughn 817 588 5672 said that once it leaves the site and is enroute, that USDOT or TXDOT is responsible while it is on the road…I got a call back from either TXDOT or the EPA gal (Francis Verhallen 214 665 2172) who said due to the classification of injection wells (Class II) that the brine is nonwaste, therefore classified as not being hazardous so that manifests are not required instead “trip logs” are kept on all commercial loads …that depending on the company the self regulating process is

1) The driver signs a log or

2) driver keeps the log w/him.

The injection well company keeps records of what comes in….my other notes say “load tickets to file at injection wells” but I’m not clear that the trip tickets show a quantity that leaves the site that is filed and verified at the injection well company…I was told that the injection well company keeps up with how much is coming in cause that is “money” to them…but somehow I don’t believe anybody would blow a whistle on a paying customer…ya know?

We need HOME RULE to be the first line of denfense on making sure what leaves those sites are verified against what the injection well sites receive and that needs to be part of the permit process in our ordinances as run off affects our water and produce etc….public health.

RE: Gas Production water being drained onto I-30 City response more I have several concerns about this. 

It looks like the city attorney is bending over backward to shift the responsibility to the state. The pollution of the air/land/water inside a city is the proper concern of the level of government closest to the people affected, not the state. This is what the concept of home rule is all about, and it is why from the earliest days of our federal government, home rule was a specific right that was allocated downward from the federal government to the states and then further passed to the municipalities by state laws. No one knows better than the people who live in a municipality what is a nuisance, a threat to public health, public safety, and a threat to property values in the community, and it is a breach of this fundamental concept to allow government levels above that which is closest to the affected humans/taxpayers/property owners/residents to rule on permission to engage in heavy industrial enterprises that have the capacity to inflict danger to public health, public safety, and property values inside a municipality. That is the reason zoning power is vested in the municipality.

Also, I, for one, am fed up with the circle-the-wagons-against-the-will-of-the-people mentality that we have seen in the FW city government since the O&G industry targeted us. The city government is meant to serve the voters–not the City Council, the Chamber of Commerce, and those who want permission to operate as they choose without fear of public scrutiny. The client of the city government is the body of voting residents. The City Attorney serves the people, not the city council. Any concerned citizen should be able to access any of the reasoning within the city government that leads to any action affecting the public perception of health, safety, and nuisance level inside the city limits.

Sarah Fullenwider’s idea of who she works for needs to be corrected.

Chief, CVE Officer Tucker contacted the 3 Star Daylighting Company out of Lipan Texas. Officer Tucker spoke with the dispatch manager and he advised the company was already aware of the complaint as well as the accompanying YOU TUBE Video. The dispatch manager stated the truck was not purposely dumping its load on the freeway as the complainant assumed. The truck had a faulty gasket that was allowing gas well waste water to seep out. Upon the truck return to the lot, the driver notified the company of the problem and it was immediately repaired. Officer Trucker advised the dispatch manager our CVE Unit could have pulled the truck over put them out of service and issued a citation. The dispatch manager stated he knew and understood they could have been cited for the violation. The Fort Worth Traffic Division will contact the complainant of the outcome and ask in the future to call 911 so our CVE Unit can respond.

This is outrageous. I demand that this company, this operator, and the well operator who he services be prosecuted to the full extent of the law– whatever that is.

Mayor and Council and Staff. I am sending you this video for your attention and again your awareness of these potentials in our city. This event as documented was on I-30 just West of University Dr. this month 4/5/2014. I am not sure why this citizen did not call 911 and I suppose some would say that she was wrong in attempting to document this event with her cell phone while driving down 1-30. However that being said, I have often heard from many sources that THIS IS a practice that many haulers use to disperse gas operation waste water to reduce costs of disposal fees. I once heard this first hand from a person who is a driver for one of the prominent hauling companies. I’d met him at a social event and as conversation went to ” Hey what do you do for a living? ” of each other he said ” Oh I work as a trucker hauling equipment in gas field and now drive hauling waste water from storage tanks. Well as my inquiring mind tends to always seek knowledge in this field of interest. I asked about suck things as ” Do you all drive regular routes ? ” How many sites to fill a tanker for disposal ? ” To that question and well maybe because I had yet to be totally honest about my activism on this topic of gas extraction activities, or maybe because we were both enjoying a few beers, he replied ” Well that depends on how much we pick up actually gets to a disposal site.” When prodded ” What do you mean ? ” He claimed they are instructed to allow this activity of dispersion especially late at night by the operators of these trucking companies. When I asked was he not concerned about what he was doing? He replied he felt compelled to do as told or be fired and He had been out of work for 2 years prior to getting this job after he got his CDL license to take advantage of the industry development opportunities.

I have been told by others as I continue to do my hobby as President of NCTCA like stories of dispersing gas production waste in rural areas and even into creeks and streams that flow to our drinking water reservoirs. Alarming to me and I would hope to you. We must wonder How often this is occurring ? What could be the environmental and water resources risks ? never mind what could this chemical laced waste do to future road deterioration ? The Industry doing this saves costs now pollutes water road damage and WHO will pay the cost later ? Again this is my FYI to you. My concerns passed on to you. This was the first documented event I was privy to and although I too had concerns for the way this was done by this citizen I was somewhat glad she had proof it did. Note there should be enough information about who when truck number etc for someone to take action. I am fairly sure we can find out the name of individual that witnessed and recorded this event. If any of you would care to comment back that would be appreciated.



We made it to the Denton porch party and it was a success….here are some pics.

I am thanking “YOU” the reader in advance 2 act here today by contacting your reps at all levels of government to ask them how they can better regulate and NOT allow the industry to slowly poison us.

Kevin L commented on FB after seeing this post “as I was leaving Dallas a couple of months ago, I saw a truck with the chemical containers leaking all over the freeway going south. It had stopped on the side of the road, but not before poisoning at least a couple of miles of freeway”

IMG_1038 IMG_1040 10314710_618357531584985_6698390919725438407_n I really hate going to Denton….The last time I went there to UNT (for a presentation on proximity of pad sites in location to schools verses other areas), we had to drive through a fracking fog of silica dust that smelled like burnt pig poop…I immediately got disoriented driving with such sudden low visibility and then I became mentally confused as to which lane I was in – I had arrhythmia & pounding heart beat issues for the following three days.

Here is a PA video that speaks to how trucks spill their brine on the roads by Terry Greenwood RIP

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.
