Sanitary Sewer Line Overflows in Fort Worth
Arlington Reports No Risk to Local Water Supply

Fort Worth Water Utility officials today reported that an overflow occurred early Tuesday morning at the site of a sewer line relocation project resulting in an overflow into Lake Arlington.

Quicksilver Resources Inc. is relocating a Fort Worth 54-inch sewer line in order to place a gas well pad site near Lake Arlington. The construction contractor, W. R. Hodgson, had installed plugs in the sewer line and put bypass pumping in place as part of its line relocation work.

The pumps were unable to keep up with the flow volume and resulted in sewage overflowing into a creek that flows into Lake Arlington. Corrective measures were taken. The creek is being damned to contain a portion of the spill, and this will be returned to the sanitary sewer system.

The City of Fort Worth has notified the City of Arlington and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality of the overflow.

Arlington Water Utilities Director Julie Hunt reinforced this message Tuesday afternoon to Arlington water customers.

“This overflow does not pose any danger to Arlington’s drinking water supply,” she said. “We continue to monitor the water quality in Lake Arlington to ensure that it is safe before being treated.”

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires wastewater system operators to notify the news media and public officials when large discharges occur from the sanitary sewer collection system. According to the TCEQ, the public should avoid contact with affected streams, ponds and lakes.

1/20/2016 UPDATE….when the lights go out in a power outage…you may also get FRACKQUAKES when they (the injection well pumps) all automatically come back on! See here for Oklahoma frackquake story.

Yesterday I viewed the Texas law for waste treatment plant’s back up plans during a power outage…Screen shot 2015-12-29 at 2.26.22 PMScreen shot 2015-12-29 at 2.26.30 PMScreen shot 2015-12-29 at 2.26.41 PM

 

And while I was reading that……” this “… was happening in Missouri…..

Fenton Wastewater Treatment Plant Shutdown

Published on Tuesday, December 29, 2015

“It is believed that the recent heavy rainfall and the rising Meramec River caused the treatment plant inflow to exceed capacity, which resulted in water overflowing the plant controls and causing a power outage to the entire treatment plant. This plant is designed for 6.75 million gallons per day (MGD) of flow; at the time the overflow occurred, it was treating nearly 24 MGD.

Sewage that would normally be treated at this wastewater treatment plant is not being treated at this time. Sewage is being diverted into nearby rivers and streams”. 

 

Am I psychic or what?
Last month I was sent a picture of a flooded drill site by Trinity River which is in the area of the …wait for it…..

Ft Worth Village Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant…could the Trinity actually make it there next time around and cause a major power outage and then all that sewer would…go…somewhere?
I have blogged in the recent past about our Lake Arlington (drinking water aquifer) getting Ft Worth’s poop in the last two big rain storms. I also snuck in some flooded drill site and fenceline pics.
And I have blogged about the implications to public safety with higher risks when we lose power…like the time two drill sites spewed in Arlington and DWG at the same time when we lost power.
And I have blogged about the cold weather risks/emission events (Edderville horror for retired lady trapped in her home near a spewing twice drill site) with frack sites when the weather freezes and makes travel ‘issues” near these drill sites…. and I’ve blogged about the interdependency issue with NG powering the plants that produce our
May my worst fears never come to fruition as mother nature helps us frack ourselves – stop using fossil fuels and switch to electric or hybrid cars and solar/wind energy. I have my electricity provider only bill me for 100% wind- you can too!

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.
