Will LABC church officials comment to EPA on frack spill?

There is an opportunity for anybody to make public comments regarding the risks to water with fracking, but you need to sign up right away at email address hanlon.edward@epa.gov as there are a limited number of 3 minute speaking slots on this telephone conference.
Here is an example right here in Colleyville TX…
Anybody worried about drilling’s air pollution fallout as acid rain getting into drinking water supplies can testify too.
Here is an audio days after the infamous LABC spill…..

Subject: LABC opportunity to telephone comment on gaswell release March 7 EPA hydraulic fracturing water quality teleconference
Please take the opportunity to have a representative from LABC church witness how the fracking fluids were released into your environment. Even though the testing said no significant impact to the water ways…that is misleading because no one tested for radionuclides. This medical paper was released last summer and you need to be aware of this….
Thank you in advance for your important testimony, please forward this on as appropriate to those you know have personally been affected by the LABC gaswell releases last year.
Sincerely,
Kim Feil

Subject: Please register me for the March 7 EPA hydraulic fracturing water quality teleconference

 

Hello, please register me a slot for the upcoming teleconference. Since my last contact with you in 2013, I have been looking at TTHM’s in Arlington and Ft Worth’s drinking water and have blogged on the correlations with increases in Arlington with the advent of urban drilling and the decrease in Ft Worth since dramatic decrease in drilling (while both towns are still under the federal standards). I hope to have time to speak about the other issues with recycling waste water (what I call frack on crack) and reusing it for other uses and how the RRC does not ask the drillers to screen for NORM when releasing waste waters whether accidental or not.

While this is not peer reviewed, I note in this post how the City of Arlington’s annual water report on our municipally treated water started reporting effulents like radiation and Bromate since the advent of our urban drilling with over 60 padsites in a 99sq mile area.  Below is the info on what needs to be further investigated as we have two water treatment plants and I need someone to look at the individual plant’s readings to see if they averaged away any exceedances of Bromate. We originally only reported one radioactive effulent, Beta/Photon Emitters, (back in 2001),  but by 2004 we now report Gross Alpha Particles and Radium 228 for a total of three effulents for radioactivity.
 
 
We also have/had? a problem with Bromate…
Above photo is 2007 City of Arlington Water Quality Report where Bromate is first reported. See that the Maximum level reported is a whopping 8ppb (MCL Max Contaminant Limit=10) OUCH…to my recollection, active drilling (and spilling?) started in 2006.
Here is the link to Arlington’s 2001-2012 drinking water reports.…BromIDE is in drilling mud and when it goes through the ozonation process, that forms BromATE.
Then Bromate isn’t reported again until 2011 & 2012, but by then it has dropped to being less than half of the MCL with both years reported at the ave,min,&max = <5ppb…..gee what happened around then…the drilling (and spilling?) slowed down quite a bit….hmmm….but what about the years 2008,2009 & 2010 when we still had alot of active drilling? If it was detected, it is reportable to the public because Bromate is regulated…..maybe it was just averaged away?…..
 Compliance is based on a calculated running annual average of the quarterly averages”….
I’ve taken some advanced statistics courses, and to me this stinks of watering down the spiking events…I guess I’ll just do an open records and have them break this down by treatment plants and individual test data so I can see what these numbers were before they got “averaged to death”. I hope this “averaging to death” doesn’t literally happen to any Arlington residents who may have been exposed to unsafe levels of Bromate.

Subject: ozonation staging to reduce Bromate in our drinking water
Mr Westbrook, since this recent article…
I looked at our 2009 water report and Bromate was not on there, but by 2011 and 2012, I now see it.
Since Bromide is in drilling muds and a recent City Council meeting on the Eden site shows a 2010 photo of a drilling mud accident that never made it into our incident reports has me concerned that more Bromide is getting into our drinking water source then when it goes through our disinfecting ozonation process, it then becomes a reportable contaminate called Bromate.
Below is info that shows how to reduce our Bromate exposure…how is the city working to reduce Bromate in their staging of the ozonation?

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.
