Make sure you step out yer back door and yell “HEY DANGER! GO PUT YER RESPIRATOR MASK ON” and then git your mask on and go back and watch yer TV. Don’t foret yer dog may need a mask too.

Here is the link to the CDC/NIOSH study released 8/21/14 on the Benzene exposure to workers during flowback.

In my comment I speak of how closed, pressurized, ventless flowback tanks should be the energy standard, not open hatch tanks.

State Impact reports today how some Benzene threshold limits may not apply to the oil & gas workers…

“As a known carcinogen, benzene exposures in the workplace are limited by federal regulations under OSHA. But some oil and gas production activities are exempt from those standards.

….HEY WORKERS tell yer blood cells to ignore ol’ Ben …hmmph!

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.
