Employees of RRC lose jobs VS TCEQ find jobs – difference is Violations Found…Or Not

After reading about two terminated workers at the RRC who actually tried to do their job, I thought about that lone TCEQ rep that actually reported smelling a natural gas & pesticide odor and experienced health effects while on an investigation at a compressor station in Dalworthington Gardens a few years ago.
The dump valve was stuck open at the DWG Compressor Station TWICE back in the summer of 2011.  After the investigation, I spoke with Kijun Hong at TCEQ. He said the handheld (TVA) registered 1,229 ppm Volatile Organic Compounds (ref ACL 1108073 8/18/11). He admitted over the phone when asked that he had health effects of a sore throat and burning eyes. I told him if I was his mamma I’d make him get a BTEX test. Two years later Kijun went to work for Access Midsream …he job hopped over to the industry side. I have a list of those incestuous job hoppers on this link HERE.

The dump valve was stuck open again as four days later yet ANOTHER TCEQ inspector, Jonathan Powell, came out to investigate; so the problem wasn’t fixed.

In both stuck dump valve cases NO VIOLATION or NUISANCE VIOLATIONS were found.
Jonathan Powell sucked it up real good as health effects were not specified on the report.  Four months later Jonathan was the gas well inspector for the City of Flower Mound!
Moral of the story…
FIND NO VIOLATIONS at TCEQ and go on to work for the industry or as a city gas well inspector……
…….find violations as an RRC employee and…LOSE YER JOB!  
Now dat’s TexASS proud!
Need an Arlington example? Odors were logged two miles away on 1/31/2013 in the Entertainment District. Five fire trucks, one ambulance dispatch and field notes from our city gaswell inspector, Jessica Minley, (who used to work for the TCEQ as a field inspector) of a “burnt oil odor (strong offensive)”, and yet the TCEQ nor the City of Arlington found a violation.


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.
