update Lake Texoma at risk for floating crude and waste water tanks carried off by flooding in Oklahoma!
update 6/22/15 2499 is closed to the north all the way to Lakeside Pkwy….whew…those drill sites are on the other side further north and east of Lakeside Pkwy.
update 6/21/15 here is an aerial view of the Lake Grapevine flooded area that threatens flooding the nearby drill sites and compressor station…drill site effluents don’t mix with drinking water supplies at Lake Grapevine.
Happening NOW two miles away from Mother Nature’s wrath at Lake Grapevine is TWO MILES TOO CLOSE. HB 40 expressly forbids any local authorities to mandate shutting in wells and demanding that the site owners empty all their storage tanks of toxic fluids and fill them with clean water so they don’t float away.
Anytime any surface spill at any of these sites have soaked onto the site or silently ran off to adjacent areas, the storm waters reconstitute those toxins who, studies have shown have a COLLOID effect which leaches normally occurring heavy metals from the ground and you have this exponentially FRACK ON CRACK toxic storm water run off risk.
Mix that with sewer leak risks in that area, and unknown multiple, cumulative effects up the level of toxins!
I wonder what the largest record setting Brownfields is now that we frack seemingly everywhere? #LakeGrapevineFrackedArea?
Lets hope if Lake Grapevine communicates with the local natural gas mining and compression infrastructures that the water flow continues away from that drinking water reservoir!
NO…. dilution is not the solution either….
Keep in mind that one teaspoon of Benzene contaminates about 261,000 gallons of water…
