Does this information not exist in a spreadsheet to compare the raw water intake year over year?
Below is a copy of a recent communication….

Kim:  We monitor raw water at our intake on Lake Arlington twice per year. The testing includes VOC’s, metals, pesticides, and phosphate. We routinely monitor for Ph, temperature, etc.  The raw water sample information is not on our website but is provided when requested by a resident.

Hello Mr Pishkur below is an article from WWI…with the last round of Arlington flooding at Lake Arlington (and it being a piping issue on the Ft Worth side) of the sewer breach, I’m not sure how relevant this article is about a product that helps concrete be waterproof, but the subject of cement rot did come up as a concern for gas well casings at the Arlington sponsored gas well forum…no one was able to answer any water quality concern questions. Here is the video in its entirety. It is two hours long but if you can let it run while you work you can then see how and why we fear the worst for eventual long term liveablity issues in Arlington’s Urban Drilling embrace. Collin Gregory may not have passed on those questions to you, but it would be appreciated if the city webpage from the water department had a link covering concerns of having surface and subsurface gaswell infrastructures near/under Lake Arlington.
Perhaps a list of what we have started to screen for since the advent of Urban Drilling?
A link to those “passed” test results.
Anything that shows we are not “business as usual” post urban drilling and maybe something that shows pro activeness like…new detectors added-what they screen for etc.
Thanks
Kim

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.
