Update 4/21/2015 Joel responded to my question “did they get compensation for their water being ruined?”
Last August in 2014 in a Denton Record Chronicle article called “Alarming Find” that reported high arsenic levels in private water wells near fracking. I became acquainted with a commenter named Joel Fuhr who used to live in the area, but now resides in Colorado.
Here is how our conversation went publicly and then privately on Facebook…..

Through a casual phone conversation with a TCEQ rep, they mentioned that just the surface equipment shaking the ground has seen higher turbidity and then later it settles back down…that surface equipment also is what has been claimed to have cracked a business’ foundation completely in half near the Lynn Smith drill site in Pantego. The business owner was stricken in her parking lot during flowback and had to have the EMT’s assist her…she was vomiting and her blood pressure soared due to strong odors/gasses whatever it was they called it stale water….
Joel Fuhr ·my friend built a small brick home just north of ponder. they drilled a new well. fracking near their well destroyed their water. the oil company was still supplying water to that house last I heard. that should be one of the wells they test.
Joel also have them email email@example.com to see if they will come out and test the well … I noticed this morning that Sanger has Arsenic (below the limits) but they do access water wells for their public supply. https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2014/09/04/first-glance-sanger-tx-water-quality-sux/

the house I mentioned is approximately 2 miles north of ponder. it is three or four miles south of 380. there is a turn off to a large old time story house just south of them. their driveway has three or four houses on it. they are in a like red brick home. the reason why I have to tell you all this is because both of them have passed away. I’m in Nebraska and they are dead so no one is going to email. Janet died of hepatitis and Joseph of diabetes Both too young.
Is worth a Google to find the address and see if they are on the list. If not they have the example you are looking for in ruined well water.
