Subject: welcome Dimos, now please research Barnett Shale health changes since drilling started
Heres hoping Duane Dimos (new UTA research lead) will help facilitate student RESEARCH studies of Barnett Shale urban drilling health statistics of young-aged heart attacks, leukemias, myelomas, neuro/glio blastomas, asthma, COPD, & “young deaths from ‘natural’ causes”.
We need to view these stats as a percentage of population and compare pre-drilling to post-drilling numbers so we know how bad the uptick really may be.
You would want to parse out the nationwide uptick in lung ailments in general in ozone non-attainment areas but add back any changes in drilling areas.
Melanie Sattler has done some gas well padsite dispersion modeling in the past for the Ft Worth area and may be able to give guidance on the “fall out” zone for the zip codes to query if you limit the study to just Arlington.
I suggest zip codes where existing stationary sources of pollution are where gas wells have been added like at the Exelon (Hadley) Power Plant near Lake Arlington, General Motors, Arlington airport, by the dump/Viridian, and by the water treatment plants. That way we could kill two birds with one stone to find out how synergistic pollution may be when we mix gas well and compressor station emissions with existing pollution sources.  Multiple, cumulative pollution is unknown and therefore unregulated so UTArlington could be credited with chasing down this important data.
Near Lake Arlington is Martin Highschool, and there seems to be a high noise area where people feel there is a cancer cluster.
PS Did you know we have 22 on campus gas wells?

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.
