Subject: {NCTCA} Re: Irish Dr. Geralyn McCarron video on health effects for people near gas wells
 “Geralyn McCarron is an Irish GP who practices in Brisbane. This well qualified medic (Bachelor of Medicine , Bachelor of Surgery, Bachelor of the Art of Obstetrics, Fellow of the Australian College of General Practitioners, Member of the National Toxics Networks, Member of Doctors for the Environment Australia) decided to undertake some research in a small rural residential community five hours drive from Brisbane. This rural-based community is surrounded by shale gas fields – comprising approximately 600 wells. There is deliberate venting and flaring of gas and there are fugitive gases coming directly out of the ground. What Dr McCarron found in this small community shocked her. She said: “There is a back ground level of illness which is way above anything you would expect. In addition, there are severe exacerbations where many people are very ill at the same time. These are usually associated with odor events, changes in wind direction and temperature inversions.”

Subject: peer reviewed study adds concerns f/Lake Arlington casing laterals/Enervest Rice plume
The work was released Monday, 9/15/14 (yesterday) by The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Here is the technical report….
 WFAA covered this story today and last night too.
Newsweek covered this … “What we don’t know right now is whether methane is an early warning of other chemicals to come,” Jackson says—that would likely depend on the type of well damage that was causing the methane leak in the first place. ‘If you have a crack in the steel casing, it is an open pipeline, if you will.’ Methane would escape first, and then other chemicals would seep out over time, Jackson says. If the flaw is only in the cement casing, however, it would be less likely that other chemicals could escape. In short, methane in water doesn’t always mean other more nefarious chemicals will arrive there too. But in some cases, it might.”
And Yahoo/Associated Press also covered this story…. “Both the cement and steel casings can fail because of damage during installation, corrosion, design flaws or age — known as “well integrity problems.” Methane gas will escape through any openings.”Trace amounts of noble gases helped determine how fast the gas bubbled into drinking water supplies. Naturally rising methane should have about 10,000 times more helium than the gas polluting the drinking water wells, Darrah said. But the helium, neon and argon suggest the methane zipped to the surface via a fracking well, and then leaked out into groundwater….“Somehow, these gases managed to get to the surface without going through any water or rock, and in some cases, we could actually document well integrity was the problem,” Darrah said.
My question for Buzz  is what statements can you make to Arlington residents to alleviate water contamination fears?
I’ve been waiting for Ms Simmons to comment on Urban Drilling’s surface equipment and truck exhaust pollution’s effect on our health…when will that statement ever happen?
Today (I suspect at the Rice drill site), I saw a large black plume of smoke near the water tower when I was at Cooper and 303. I left Collin a message but refrained from calling 911 cause when I got down the hill, the plume was gone. And when I got to the drill site, a water evacuation truck was waiting to be let in. There was a stank in the air and the usual dead trees north of the wall.
Please make some comforting statements to be published on your website, thanks.

Subject: on the IFC language adoption did you mean to say MAY NOT?
What you said in the meeting to amend before the final reading was that wells MAY be drilled closer than 300 feet from places where people gather (which is less safe than the IFC standards)…..also this “if feasible” language you also added is yet another loophole for the drillers to do what they want..that would allow for larger drilling zones even closer to people.
This is bad timing in light of more info coming out on birth defects and correlation to well densities to expectant mothers and subsequent birth defects higher risk rates. https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2014/08/31/why-natural-news-is-an-alarmist-publication-and-to-be-fractd-checked/
Please clarify if you meant to say MAY NOT, thanks. If this is true and the other council members didn’t catch what you were doing…this needs to be fixed. Any Christian leader would know better than to put this activity that close to people.

For those who have jobs in environmental waste treatment, disposal, risk etc, please read the information presented here.

Subject: Fw: Two newfound water risks related to drilling-the Arlington Bromate connection & COLLOIDS
Dear P&Z this letter is also directed to you as the first line of defense.  In the last gas well ordinance update, existing gas well padsites with already established drilling zones (plus first well approved) now have administrative approval for all future gas well permitts in Arlington with no public comment. Also at the bottom of this blog post is information how recent activity to add International Fire Code language was loopholed by Councilman Shepard as to how close gas wells can be (less than 300 feet). Please be aware of this recent activity.
Also public comment on non-agenda City Council meeting items are no longer being broadcast. As public scrutiny grows against Urban Drilling, Arlington residents have fewer ways to voice public concerns while efforts to drill even closer to people is up for final vote. FYI.

Regarding Urban Drilling Water Quality risks.. Bromide and Colloids
The study appeared this week in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts….
“However, the presence of various fatty acid phthalate esters in the Barnett and Marcellus produced waters can be related to their use in drilling fluids and breaker additives rather than their presence in connate fluids. Halogen containing compounds are found in each of the water samples, and although the fluorocarbon compounds identified are used as tracers, the presence of chlorocarbons and organobromides formed as a consequence of using chlorine containing oxidants (to remove bacteria from source water), suggests that industry should concentrate on non-chemical treatments of frac and produced waters.”   I blogged about seeing bromate showing up in our Arlington Water Quality Reports AFTER Urban Drilling came in (bromate is created when bromide mixes with ozone used for Arlington water purification processes). So bromide can be coming from the drilling phase and the produced water treatment phases.
COLLOIDS going into storm water runoff is another new found hazard as drilling fluid effluents leach out heavy metals from the soil.  I have pictures from the last June’s rain storm that showed the Truman drill site risks to Johnson Creek.
ATTN: City Leaders it is within your power through Home Rule to protect our air and drinking water from high impact industrial activities in the interest of property values and public health risks.  Do not approve any more drilling zones, drill site expansions or SUP’s.
P.S. Regarding Urban Drilling Air Quality risks…
From Journal of Environmental Monitoring… We identify nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds (VOC), ozone, hazardous air pollutants (HAP), and methane as pollutants of concern related to O & NG activities. These pollutants can contribute to air quality concerns and they may be regulated in ambient air, due to human health or climate forcing concerns. Close to well pads, emissions are concentrated and exposure to a wide range of pollutants is possible. Public health protection is improved when emissions are controlled and facilities are located away from where people live.
PSS. If the workers have proven Benzene risk…who is watching out for the people living near Benzene exposures?
You have officially been notified of FOUR good reasons to KILL the Urban Drilling projects in Arlington-thank you for taking the time to read the evidence presented to you for your future decisions as I will post this letter on my blog.

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.
