Truman 1H & 2H permit for two gaswells near the ATT Stadium near the Arlington Entertainment District $29,000 total.

TIPRO oil & gas association was one a few entities that filed a lawsuit against our city for imposing an emergency readiness response fee per well of $2,400 annually.

In TIPRO’s closing remarks from Hastings ….“The City of Arlington already imposes the highest fees for oil and natural gas operations in North Texas. Operators paid $1.8 million in city fees in 2011 alone and the City received $2.5 million in mineral ad valorem revenues. And the City of Arlington received an additional $105 million in bonuses and royalties over a five years period ending in 2011″.

April 14, 2015 just days after an evacuation event at the LABC drillsite, the city gave a report following the fire chief’s briefing council on the gas well incident….

The report on the potential buildout was that Arlington has room for 7-9 more NEW padsites (to our already existing 54 padsites), and this means we can have up to 900 more gas wells if the economics allow.

Here is the second city update on June 16 2015 LABC starting at LABC link.

So if the price of natural gas goes up the frackers will be back. And while it will be good money for the city coffers, our town will not be recognized as remotely liveable.

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.
