Council rejects additional drilling under our Lake Arlington drinking reservoir

Here is a city hall video taken the day before the vote of 11/10/15 explaining what was being voted on and discussed in executive session…. #soMuchBetterThanHandNotes

Two gaswell related city owned land items were voted on at once…the first one being described in this video is the Chesapeake one and the second one is the “Vantage-request  to be drilling-two laterals under the drinking water reservoir, Lake Arlington”, one…



Thanks WFAA! Here is the link and some screen snap pics of the video…

Subject: Can we have Public Comment before the executive vote for more drilling under Lake Arlington?
Molly or Mary, after the LABC drill site spill, we aren’t that impressed with Vantage even though that LABC incident was from a materials failure…..when Quicksilver spilled into Lake Arlington on the Ft Worth side several years ago, that was real upsetting too.
Stuart Young said that Vantage is accessing the minerals from a padsite that is west of 287 that is to reach under the lake.
If surface spillage into the lake is not to be a risk, the seismic issues are worrisome nonetheless.

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.
