Betty’s cat vomited in car driving by DWG Compressor Station / Dimmit FLIR tells all

A resident of Pantego Texas has a cat that likes to jump in the car and go for a ride…but one day that was a really bad idea…

The dump valve was stuck in the open position twice the summer of 2011 at the Dalworthington Gardens compressor station. Betty, Harriet Iry’s friend, went looking for the odor and her cat, Lu Lu (who habitually jumps in the car for a ride) started vomiting in the car.

And while she was aiming to go Pappy Elkins, could no longer stay in the car and had to turn around. I called her today and asked if Lu Lu had a history of vomiting and hairballs and she said that was the only time Lu Lu has EVER thrown up. She also told me that when she complained, the city wanted to check her gas line at her home.

So three years later in checking in on her, she told me that she can no longer drive by that compressor station anymore and has to use a different route to get around that area.

To collaborate this DWG Compressor Station’s history of emissions, my son’s friend, JJ’s dad, told me on the phone that once he drove on 303 (the road between the station and Camp Thurman) right into a holy god awful odor-and his windows were rolled up….did I mention it was next to Camp Thurman? I’ve blogged about that before and how they don’t like the negative PR of my pointing this out.

…that DWG station is across the street south of Camp Thurman. In one or both investigations the TCEQ inspector was sickened…and a TCEQ inspector at the Pantego site may have been sickened too when a lift job was underway-the TVA recorded off the chart amts (1,140 ppm)…so three events and I recall two different inspectors reporting on the report of health effects. One of the inspectors,Kijon, took a job elsewhere after that.

In the above Dimmit county video, a rancher rented his own FLIR infrared camera cause by the time TCEQ would come out they would be too late to the emission event….if you watch this video, it sounds like when they “called” TCEQ, that that it itself fixed the problem…I asked in my mind….after TCEQ got the complaint, did they then call the operator and …

1) tell them to look at their electronic pressure readings/remote shut in well, or

2) did the driller send a company rep out to fix the issue before TCEQ’s inspection?

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.
