Arlington Library Replacement Facade: go log cabin look ….#mostTalkedBout

Hey if we can frack in people’s back yards, then we could slam the worlds largest log cabin looking building smack dab downtown as yet another tourist attraction destination…prefab wood of course!

Pictured below is a 1964 photo from offbeatOregan.com …notice in one of the pics what looks like our old library in the background….a good omen.  Plus it would tie in the wooden electricity polls in the area.

I wonder if the prefab’s rubber grout would be frackquake friendly?

Yesterday I took this footage of how much care goes into our airshed…they were wetting down the wrong stuff…people standing about and allowing that…just  like a fracker ya know….

Kim,

This is a developer project so I’m not directly involved. I have been trying to provide you the direct contacts on the project who can provide the specific answers. Nathan who works for Reed Engineering prepared the report identifying the locations of the asbestos. Terracon is the actual contractor removing the asbestos. This is a very normal process to have a different entity actually removing the asbestos.  If Nathan can’t confirm the status of the asbestos removal he should be able to give you the contact person at Terracon who can provide that information.

Hope this helps.

I thought you said the asbestos was already removed, but Nathan is saying its still there left….
sounds like Reed contracted the asbestos work out to another entity (see attached asbestos license)…and yet he refers to Catalyst Urban as his client…these layers of accountability are confusing me…at the end of the day all I want to know is…was/is the asbestos remediation being done correctly?
Who could I forward this email string to that would know about asbestos remediation?
PS why does the physical signage by the library sidewalk benches say Terracon if Reed-Environmental is doing the work?
PSS Why isn’t Reed-Environmentals asbestos inspector, Fernando Gomez involved in this?

Hi Kim-

The plastic that is flapping in the wind is solely for rain protection. We don’t want a rain storm or other wet event washing our materials onto the ground. The asbestos that is being removed is contained within the plastic wrapped along the scaffolding. Attached are some photos of wrapped materials from a few days ago, as well as text messaging regarding the rain protection aspect. Also attached is my license for the consulting aspect. We don’t not do the actual abatement.

This is a link that tells you who can do what. And here is a link that you can search and see our listing on the state website as well as the abatement contractor (Hester Environmental) dba Team Environmental.

Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reports or other information without our clients permission (Catalyst Urban), and the final report won’t even be completed until the project is completed (maybe 2 more weeks?). If there is something in the report you need to know about, you can feel free to call me and I will be happy to talk to you about it. Or I will be back onsite at some point between 1 and 3 today if you want call or I can come by.

Hi, my name is Kim Feil and I live on the other side of the railroad tracks downwind from when all that asbestos remediation was taking place. One thing I observed was that the plastic always seemed to be flapping in the wind. Do you have any photos of when the plastic was ever tightly in place?
Also please send me a copy your DSHS license to remediate asbestos, your initial survey report, and subsequent diaries and final report for the asbestos remediation.
Thank you
Kim Feil

It is my understanding they have made site visits and Reed sends them reports. You can verify all of that with Reed Engineering.

Kim, the TCEQ does not regulate that. I suggest you contact the Texas Department of State Health Services.  www.dshs.state.tx.us/default.shtm

Kim,
Reed Engineering who works for the Developer of this project has to certify to TCEQ that the asbestos was removed. TCEQ also has an inspector in the area who I assume made periodic site visits to ensure compliance.
Hope this helps.

When did they mediate the asbestos? It seems that every time I saw that plastic that it was flapping in the wind….made me feel like it was supposed to be air tight?

Kim,
Got your phone message and I have contacted CD&P about the need to ensure this site is being watered down to minimize the dust.
Hope this helps.
Keith

So I did an Open Records Request W022394-070715 for… “A certification document from the asbestos remediation company of the % removed from the Arlington library prior to the demolition. Any correspondence on the success or failure of the plastic containment sheets that seemed to always be flapping in the wind.”

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.
