They must be fracking-waste-related-spilling so reliably often …how bout’ let’s just make it easier to report it monthly (instead of within 24 hours)  wow!

And if the drillers start treating more waste water, (cause injection wells = too many frack quakes), then it will be easier for them too?

SB 912: Volume-Based Exemptions for Certain Accidental Discharges
The rulemaking would implement SB 912 by amending 30 TAC Chapters 305 and 327. Specifically, volume-based exemption from reporting requirements for certain accidental discharges or spills from wastewater facilities.

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.
