City of Arlington Indemnity / hold harmless lease language = no accountability


Lessor=City of Arlington

Below is parts of lease #14-002 (that was approved 12/16/14) for the minerals under OUR public owned city parks.

First we ask Chesapeake not to make a fracking mess…

Screen shot 2014-12-16 at 1.41.13 PMThen we ask Chesapeake not to sue us (the city) if their workers get hurt on the frack jobs…

Screen shot 2014-12-16 at 1.42.05 PMThen we ask Chesapeake to hold the city gas well inspectors harmless in the course of their inspections…Screen shot 2014-12-16 at 1.43.29 PM Screen shot 2014-12-16 at 1.43.39 PMThen below is more indemnification language (in an ordinance specific to each drill) site that holds harmless the actual City Council members that vote to permit these drill sites…

So when our city council members DO NOT vote in a manner that is protective to the public’s health…ie… The Precautionary Principle,

there is NO fracking ACCOUNTABILITY!


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.
