Kim: The commentary on the water – energy nexus is nothing new and is not correlated specifically to the Fracking phenomena. We all know nexus is a fancy word for interconnection or linkage. I have personal experience discussing this nexus in relation to the waters of the Great Lakes during the negotiations of the Great Lakes Pact between multiple Midwest states and Canada. The issue there was the power industry (electric generation) uses upwards of 75% of all the water that is taken from the Great Lakes while the focus was on the 17% of the water being used by people at their homes. It was shocking for some to learn the real facts related to what accounted for the majority of the withdrawals. The other side of the water- energy nexus is that not only are large amounts of water used in the power generation process but that water utilities use significant energy to operation treatment facilities for fresh water and wastewater along with that of system booster and lift stations. The two are interconnected and optimizing that situation has long been an area of discussion and focus for many. It will continue to be a balancing act for utilities and legislators.

Subject: For P&Z recap comments/clarifications/request for workshop
Lake Arlington Natural Gas Waste Storage Tanks Infrared … and here is a video by a school…
Here is part of what I spoke on last night at the P&Z hearing…..
We lost $12 million in Truman drill site surface valuations over a 5 year period. Netting the subsurface mineral valuations is a more convoluted story because the historic Apple Nine ownership mineral valuations were purged when ownership changed to Chesapeake. The same story applys to Carrizo in having sold to Enervest.
I have asked Roger Venables for info on mineral valuations, but am told it is not available. So here is the Perr surface devaluation information….
Enervest owns the 6.6 acre lot to the north with the old empty night club valued at $2.76 sq ft that has followed the market increase rate (+15% from 2011 figures at $2.40). The actual padsite of 6.3 acres lost 36% of its 2012 value and is now at $1.75 sq ft.
Similarly the Chesapeake padsite adjacent to the Perr site at 2913 S Cooper has 8.3 acres commercial vacant at $1.70 sq ft.
Contrast that to the frontage property on Cooper street at the Race Trac gasoline station that sits on 1.4 acres that has a whopper value of $24 sq ft.
Across from the Rac Trac, (2904 S Cooper), the Avis shop has less than three quarters of an acre at $12 sq ft.
Nearby at 2805 Cooper, the tiny parcel (.2 acre) Espita Cleaning Service at is at $17 sq ft, & the Graham Station (across from the drill site) has 2.7 acres at $6 sq ft.
At 2915 S Cooper, the AG Realty owner has 4 acres at $3 sq ft and sits between both drill sites.
The Chesapeake padsite near Green Oaks/Cooper (TAD 41588940) and near our municipal air port (TAD# 41583590), both are AT SEVEN CENTS a sq ft.
(The Ederville drill site is also at seven cents a sq ft)
How low can it go….?
Our padsite properties have the least value, since these properties are already “established” why not keep drilling? I’ll tell you why….let us figure how much it would cost to truck in water in the event of widespread water contamination due to the huge shale play buildout.
It has already started to affect our Big Mac seismicity attack status, and earthquakes risk damage to our casings. The existing wells may have unknown leaks that can take years to show itself, so lets not rush to allow more drilling when the science is just starting to catch up.
Ground water pollution can travel about a mile a year in general…nature needs 200 years to attenuate the pollution and we can’t wait that long.
East of the drill sites is the medical district. In looking at the Parkside Place with its nine quadraplex owners, that $30 sq ft ($7.8 million value) could go south along with the rest of Arlington jobs & property values if we don’t have water.
Yesterday I was at 303 & Cooper and saw black (smoke signal like) plumes to the east by the water tower near the Enervest Rice drill site…by the time I got down the hill, the plumes were gone…my son & I saw identical plumes like that from the Enervest UTA site one morning.
P&Z was told not to keep health and environmental reasoning in their deliberations, but a young 22 year old woman NW of (downwind less than a mile of these two drill sites) was diagnosed with thyroid cancer around the same time of her aunt who lives two blocks away (with breast cancer) at the same time the family dog did. I submit to you that the people less than 300 feet away in the KOA campground need to be protected…that they are categorized as being outside of a “protected use” is unconscionable….
A lot is unknown about our Mc Donald Happy Land /Urban Drilling experiment we are in-no health or environmental impact study has been done…the gas can wait…our health and water supplies can not.
