Rain Happens – Installed Drains Allowed at Toxic Arlington Urban Drilling Pad Sites

UPDATE Dec 5 2017: The triple threat to drinking water identified when Biocides, Chlorine, and Antibiotics FAIL 

At our busiest intersection in Arlington, the corner of Collins and Division what connects our Entertainment District to to our Downtown area is a lovely drill site tucked away behind a fence…that no one wants to develop the frontage on (that lost $12 million in surface taxable value in a five year period). By chance I captured this Google Earth image and reported it as a possible spill. (*see below correspondence from AFD/city staff).truman spill? truman spill2Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 9.41.00 AM Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 9.46.00 AMYes that is hotel less than 100 feet away.Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 9.48.00 AMThe ATT Cowboys Stadium is 2,600 feet away-even closer for tailgaters.Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 9.49.12 AMI

I’m one of those residents who are aware of the risks in living by a drill site. Above I show where I live in proximity (which is about 1,700 feet to the west). Click here to see the last flood we had in June of 2014. Note back then how the drill site looked when Johnson Creek was rushing over the street near this drill site. But for this blog, lets concentrate on if this Google Earth time shot is of a spill or just rain (see below pics of rainwater on the roof and on Division street) water mixed with frack on crack (learn about colloids here).Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 9.55.13 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.00.11 AMGoing west on Division, I will now take you on a frack tour after a rainstorm to see how the other drill sites held their effluent waters that go into our storm drainage ditches without any environmental testing..yep!Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.01.05 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.01.33 AMSee the storm drain vent in the above pic near that fence?Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.01.47 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.02.18 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.02.55 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.03.54 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.04.20 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.06.25 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.06.40 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.07.14 AMOh look below at the pricey Oakridge private school…spreading the luv to rich kids..Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.07.45 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.08.24 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.08.46 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.09.53 AMOK R U ready to see whats on the south side of Division/Lancaster by our drinking water reservoir called Lake Arlington? We will first look at the compressor stations and then travel on the west side (the Ft Worth) side of the lake where some five summers ago Quick Silver spilled their produced water into our drinking water source…yep it happened click here for the details.Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.10.25 AMEwe…whats coming off those tanks? Well here is a TCEQ FLIR video….enjoy my son’s music while you gawk at the 24/7 poisons that probably fallout into our Lake Arlington.Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.11.04 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.11.44 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.12.11 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.12.17 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.12.45 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.13.06 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.13.58 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.15.04 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.15.39 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.16.43 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.17.53 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.18.05 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.18.32 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.19.09 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.19.30 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.20.45 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.21.06 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.24.15 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.24.33 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.24.52 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.25.23 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.27.36 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.28.58 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.29.21 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.30.43 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.31.25 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.31.53 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.34.20 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.34.44 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.35.27 AMNext I will take you to whats east of our drinking water reservoir by Jewell Dr where on April 11 & 12 of 2015, Vantage lost control over a fracking operation at lake Arlington Baptist Church and all that frack water waste flowed into the nearby creek to the east-thankfully not to the west (pic below shows Lake Arlington 1 mile away to the west) …… click here for that choice of ongoing LABC coverage. Click here for a recent video testimony of the radioactive nature/water contamination of this frack on crack crap (TENORM). Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.37.33 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.38.49 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.40.06 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.41.10 AMAbove is the Lake Arlington Baptist Church soccer field where the children played within the week following that 1/8 mile LABC evacuation…labc fail kid pic after spillAnother site we will visit today in the below picture is back near where this blog started…at a drill site near our Entertainment District. Only this one is on the General Motors site where no one monitors the multiple, cumulative effect of mixing effluents. This frack on crack unknown concoction is probably synergistically poisoning our visitors and those northward at the Viridian depending on the meteorological conditions that affect where the fallout occurs.Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.43.28 AMAbove pic is the GM onsite Chesapeake padsite(s).Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.43.55 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.44.30 AM…note in the above GM pic the storm drain that goes into Johnson Creek? And below is the triangle showing the two drill sites that strangle our longterm business model in being the entertainment mecca of the metroplex…you cannot mix industry with family friendly….but our local government said hell yeah we can…and they did…and the blood money earned on gas leases (one hundred million dollars) in the Tomorrow Fund cannot fix the cancer cluster risks we face tomorrow…how appropriate they named it that.Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.47.13 AMThere is another drill site east of 360 flanking of Six Flags…..see belowScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.49.13 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.49.33 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.50.32 AMNote that every day numerous trucks come to evacuate the tanks so they don’t overflow. The emissions from off loading are real…those are called exposure events of BTEX/VOC’s which worsen ozone readings-ozone frys our lungs. Don’t count on our city to invest any of those Tomorrow Funds for FLIR camera to show you those storage tank and truck off loading emission events or those compressor blow down / maintenance events..nope they don’t want you to know. But Texas Sharon went to one of our south east drill sites and took this footage…click here.Screen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.51.11 AMScreen shot 2015-05-02 at 10.54.12 AMYes the ATT Stadium/Truman Chesapeake drill site is close to our Downtown area near UTA…I didn’t bother to break your heart to show you the on campus Carrizo-now Enervest drill site...google that for yourself…no point in showing you that one cause it is on state land and therefore, our city staff does not inspect that one.

So whether that fluid is rain water mixed with drill site Colloids…none of it should be going into our storm drains….that has to change…what will you readers do to help change this?

*UPDATE on inquiry…

Ms. Feil,
Engine 1 visited the Truman site and found no issues. There was a small area of water in one corner that was rain water.

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.

    Move away and stop using any products from drilling products. Jump on your bicycle. Burn a candle. But, no, you like turning on your lights don’t you and firing up that computer of yours. As for Viridian. What can I say. Who would want to live next to already existing dump and cement factory. Don’t buy a house next to those places. Be a smart consumer and let the developers regret trying to develop that land. Trucks off loading tanks? Yea. Lots of gas being produced at those wells. I guess you would rather we now down and be controlled by the Middle East and not produce our own energy. No, don’t say clean energy either because I’ve seen arguments against even windmills killing all the birds. No one is ever happy. Oh, don’t forget about the cows farting over at the Masionic home. You need to get rid of them also cos they are polluting the air. This is a free country. We need to produce our energy. It is amazing all the neighbors complain about these rigs but all the workers are doing just fine…so I say, just like if a big Walmart opened in your back yard and you didn’t like it. Move. You don’t like energy production just stop using it. Make some candles.

    • MY THOUGHTS IN CAPS>>Move away and stop using any products from drilling products HEMP CAN RPLACE PLASTICS, BUT IT TAKES WATER TO GROW HEMP AND FRACKING RISKS QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF WATER. Jump on your bicycle NOT WHEN CARS WITH EMISSIONS SHARE THE ROAD-NOT GONNA BOGART EXHAUST FUMES. Burn a candle ISAID NO FUMES. But, no, you like turning on your lights don’t you and firing up that computer of yours HELL YES AND MY ELECTRIC BILL COMES FROM 100% WIND. As for Viridian. What can I say. Who would want to live next to already existing dump and cement factory. Don’t buy a house next to those places. Be a smart consumer and let the developers regret trying to develop that land. Trucks off loading tanks? Yea. Lots of gas being produced at those wells. I guess you would rather we now down and be controlled by the Middle East and not produce our own energy WE CAN PRODUCE OUR OWN RENEWABLES BUT IF WE VALUE OUR AMERICAN ENERGY SOURCES, THEN WHY ARE WE TRING TO EXPORT IT. No, don’t say clean energy either because I’ve seen arguments against even windmills killing all the birds THEY HAVE THOSE ROTER BLADE-LESS ONES NOW. No one is ever happy.BUT TECHNOLOGY IMPROVES AND MAKES ANTIQUATED DINOSAUR FOSSIL FOOF FUELS BECOME ON THE FAST TRACK TO BEING OBSOLETE Oh, don’t forget about the cows farting over at the Masionic home. You need to get rid of them also cos they are polluting the air.I LIKE TO EAT COWS BUT NOT POISONED ONES GRAZING NEAR FRACK SITES This is a free country. We need to produce our energy.AGREED It is amazing all the neighbors complain about these rigs but all the workers are doing just fine..YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE WHISTLE BLOWERS BUT THEY ARE OUT THERE.so I say, just like if a big Walmart opened in your back yard and you didn’t like it. Move.I WAS HERE FIRST You don’t like energy production just stop using it I HAVE. Make some candles.NO NEED TO HAVE COMBUSTION PRODUCTS WITH RENEWABLES!
