These pictures were posted on Facebook on February 5 2016 note the nasty fumes and note the silos that hold the frac sand.

I commented on the city breaking ground video for The Commons….

“What? no frack well derrick in the back drop…come on!…What up and coming young intelligent person wants to pay high dollar rent near a natural gas production site and have BTEX spewing 24/7? Our good city never bothered to do a health and environmental impact study on Urban Drilling prior to allowing us to become an industrialized town….#nosebleeds R US #guinea fracked pigs … Funny how our previous councilman, Mel Le Blanc, boasted at the council meeting for the (failed to pass) N Center Street padsite to “look at the Viridian padsite example where high end homes will co-exist with existing gas wells” …wrong….those two LOBF Range Resource padsites were sold off to Legends and then plugged and abandoned….hah! Mr Kembel did try to oppose the Enervest drill site expansion at the Commons, but council wasn’t going for it…at least he tried…now to see the chips fall where they may. Good thing the Viridian was sold off cause if the price of natural gas goes back up and some gullable mineral owner thinks threre’s gas there…well Viridian homeowners might just get a little derrick action and then we’ll get to see if ol Mel LeBlanc was right about that “peacefully co-existing with gas wells” thang. Heres a link to some pics of the rig up near where the Commons will be… And here is a February 6 2016 posting of even more recent fracking FUME activity at Rolling Hills Country Club which is near where the Commons will be….(aka this blog post)”


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.
