RRC says Urban Drilling towns can regulate emission control devices – lets make ’em DO IT!

So ANY resolutions we may ask of our towns should include that at the very least our municipalities regulate emission control devices by MANDATING Best Available Control Technologies and processes- not best accepted practices which equates to least expensive, rural methods of drilling.

The RRC allows the municipalities to regulate emission control devices.

“Odors and Air Contaminants: The Railroad Commission of Texas does not have regulatory authority over odors or air contaminants. However, for a well within the city limits, the city may enact ordinances regarding odors or other nuisances”.
 
This is the “closed top” flowback tanks that our ordinance should mandate along with the scrubber systems described in the below email.
They need to employ these too when drilling out the plugs if stale water is expected to foul the area like it did in the Entertainment District at the end of January 2013.

Kim,
The storage tanks have a pressure relief valve set at 1 PSI. The tanks are not built as pressure vessels and have the vent installed. The vent can be removed and have a venting system set up to a scrubber or other type of system to eliminate VOC prior to releasing to the atmosphere.
Thank You,

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.
