Arlington Levitt overdone with lawn chemicals?

I’m a dancing fool at the Arlington Levitt Pavilion, but last season I got this nosebleed and don’t know if it is from the fracking site nearby, the overdone lawn with chemicals, or people spraying (unneeded) mosquito spray. If you are concerned, you can email them too.

Subject: 3 health concerns at the Levitt in Arlington TX

Hi, my name is Kim Feil and I regularly attend the Arlington TX Levitt shows. I have some health concerns to bring to your attention.
1) There needs to be (like a smoking and vaping section) a designated mosquito spraying area to be considerate of others nearby that the wind carries to others breathing in pesticides could trigger someone sensitive to an asthma attack.
2) Since I have never EVER seen a mosquito there, I believe the reason is probably that the lawn seems overdone with chemical applications…children should not be allowed to be barefoot as a rule. Please have someone ask the city to quell down all those chemicals on the lawn, that would be appreciated….or at least announce that the lawn application suffices for a dose of bug spray if you are in the grassy areas.
3) I had a nose bleed (see pic below) at the Arlington Levitt last season which is downwind from the UTA padsite of natural gas wells, storage tanks, and lift compressors.
Not that anybody can stop the gas drilling train except the economics of it, and knowing that Chesapeake Energy has been a sponsor as well the ATF fund of the Arlington Levitt…there comes a time when people in leadership positions (like at the Levitt) should take a stand on urban drilling that includes contacting Arlington officials asking them to overturn Texas HB40 (a ban on fracking bans).
Since compressor blowdowns and storage tanks in the dry gas north TX (Barnett Shale) area are not mitigated with emission control devices, legally Levitt goers are subjected to emission events as well as ongoing releases unabated up to 25 tpy VOC’s PER PADSITE (and in a non-attainment area to ozone).
Thank you for your time & attention in these three matters.

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.
