A frack site at 2365 S Jennings St. is ONE THOUSAND FEET from an EPA designated Cadmium and Nickel superfund site at 2301 S Main St in Ft Worth TX …. suprised?http://www.epa.gov/earth1r6/6sf/pdffiles/pesses-tx.pdf
Dale Henry, a retired Petrolem Engineer, said fracking is more seismic taunting than injection wells-see video. Frackquakes near this superfund site could possibly get that Cadmium moving into fractures and then into the Paluxy (more shallow) ground water which is part of Ft Worth’s drinking supplies.
Reports state that injection wells are to be credited with seismic frackquakes. One ballzie Ft Worth councilman wanted to have an exception to the Ft Worth injection well moratorium. He wanted to allow an injection well in the Hillwood Alliance industrial area to provide relief to roads being damaged by all the ‘truck fracking traffic’ hauling heavy ass water to injection wells to the unincorporated (unprotected) areas in north Ft Worth. But the WFAA news heading was updated and reads …
“Fort Worth Council votes to maintain injection well moratorium”.
Here is a link to Chesapeake’s injection well info for the Barnett Shale area.
Back in 2012 the City of Ft Worth weighed the pros and cons of inner city injection wells. I have blogged about the Brentwood inner city injection well that also did (does?) a Chesapeake pilot program (2008) to use the waste heat from the compressors to evaporate the waste water piped in from other nearby padsites. I have had issues in them NOT USING SCRUBBERS to evaporate that toxic waste water. I recall then Senator Davis speaking at an energy hearing concerned that polyethylene piping moving produced water is not regulated. I’m not sure if the piping was ever completed with the nearby padsites and I’m not sure if the evaporation units are still at that Brentwood location or not.
So where is this Brentwood site that is a combination of gas well pad site/compressor station/Salt Water Injection well /evaporation site? It is located on East First St next to the old Arc Park in Ft Worth.
The Brentwood INJECTION WELL site is five miles from the Cadmium superfund site….
…and the Cadmium superfund site is 5.6 miles from our drinking water holding source at Lake Arlington…poor Lake Arlington….click here to see some sickly looking fish.
