Now that our first fracking nuisance suit was won recently….I’d like to go back in time to revisit what a nuisance it was when frack water went into Lake Arlington (our drinking water reservoir) over night. One of the Quick Silver padsites from the FT Worth side had an oopsy when they didn’t close the valve off and the tank overfilled and ran off in unknown amounts into the lake on July 14-15 in 2010.
Seven months later you can see the look on our mayor’s face when he found out about the spill…..priceless….wanna watch it? OK go to this link http://arlingtontx.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=2 then scroll to the afternoon meeting of 2/22/2011 at around 41 minutes into the video when (Meth) Mel (former) councilman asks why our drinking water reservoir was added to a list of protected uses for a 600 ft setback.
Settle down ya’ll the two year statue of limitations has lapsed….oh well…I’m sure your health wasn’t harmed? Wanna learn more about your award winning best TASTE water that you drink here in Arlington? Click here.
