2013 EPA Emissions data on Arlington General Motors

Here is some of the most recent data available from the EPA TRI (Toxic Release Inventory) self reported emissions/waste info for the Arlington GM plant.

Note this doesn’t include the onsite gas wells as that is Chesapeake’s footprint. Also this data only includes the plant expansion emissions that started the last quarter of 2013.

My take away is that the violations found are ambiguous.

Why do I concern myself with GM emissions? Cause I pleaded with our City Council not to approve gaswells near an already high emissons area here and they didn’t listen to me. So now I look and broadcast all area emissions that my family has to breathe..here are some impressive numbers…

  •  2013 toxic waste generated & shipped to other areas in Texas was 622 tons of which almost 80% was shipped off to Ferndale TX  in US short tons…

 Xylene (280 tons per year)

 1,2,4-Trimethybenzene (115 tpy)

Ethylbenzene (95 tpy)

note…Benzene (.33 ton or 660 lbs) was shipped to Denton TX

  •  2013 toxic air release big hitters (87% of the  192.5 tons) were…

Xylene (57.5 tpy)

 1,2,4-Trimethybenzene (48 tpy)

N-Butyl Alcohol (42.5 tpy)

Ethylbenzene (20 tpy)

Benzene (.66 or 1,311 lbs)

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.
