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.

Then at the end of May in 2015 we had flooding and I received the PIR from the City of Ft Worth on the Kaltenbrun sewer overflow…
….and then again at the end of November 2015 we had yet another Kaltenbrun sewer overflow….

How many years does sewage have to communicate into our drinking water source before the city takes a stand?

This issue has been raised with the City of Fort Worth. The TCEQ was notified per standard practice. The City of Arlington also from time to time has sewer overflows (which are reported monthly to TCEQ) that flow into streams. I do not believe legal action is warranted at this time against Fort Worth or Arlington for extraordinary rain fall events which surcharge or damage wastewater piping and thus create sanitary overflows into adjacent bodies of water.

I attended a watershed meeting in Burleson and asked about this sewer problem they keep having at Kaltenbrun and they say they are (will be?) working on it.
Please advise on their time schedule or another plan of (legal) action, thanks.

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.
