This was a Star Telegram comment by Rosemary Wong near my zip code back in 2011. The link no longer works, and on TAD records I cannot find an owner by that name on Trent St in Arlington (she has probably sold or assumed an alias name in her comment). HELP IF YOU HAVE INFO OR LIVE ON TRENT ST AND ALSO NOTICED THIS>>>>>thanks. This isn’t the first time Arlington homeowners have seen ground related damage in the Barnett Shale.
“….This controversial procedure of applying explosives and causing a chemical reaction to turn rock into liquid needs to stop. I have a rent house that before all of these procedures happened, was a nice house. Now, I have cracks in the foundation, and cracks in the yard, and a brown sludge that smells like paint is seeping out of the cracks. I know I can’t be the only one on Trent Drive with this problem. Chaney slipped in the loop hole for these oil companies to do what ever they want. Finally, the EPA is looking into this issue after thousands of complaints of contaminating the water supplies of towns, farms and rural individuals, and hindering their agriculture production and causing medical problems.
It should not be called ‘ developing ‘ if the outcome is destructive to the heath and welfare of the community.”
So I did an open records request but the city shows they didn’t respond to a call on Trenet Street…

In regards to you open records request our records do not indicate that the City of Arlington, Public Works went out to investigate a complaint of an issue with cracked cement with brown sludge seeping on Trent St.
Well I guess thats that…
HERE IS INFO ABOUT DRILLING MUD SEEPING IN THIS VALLEY GROVE HOME in Ohio on this LINK..
The bad thing about drilling mud is that Bromide can get into the water supply (see this PA Penn State report) and then if it gets treated with ozone as a disinfectant..then it turns into Bromate…read here about when Arlington started seeing Bromate…yep a year or so after we started drilling…go figure.
