On March 1, 2016 Reeves County Water Improvement District Number 1 (RCWID) board members unanimously agreed to a water purchase agreement presented by Houston-based Apache Corporation. The agreement entitles Apache to buy up to 400,000 barrels of water from Lake Balmorhea to use for its nearby drilling operations.Lake Balmorhea, San Solomon Springs & six other nearby springs are all interconnected – so if they contaminate one, they’ll all be contaminated. frown emoticon

UPDATE this picture is said to be happening NOW at the San Solomon Springs in Balmorhea…so sad…

There is an oasis in the desert in Balmorhea TX. It is the worlds largest spring fed swimming pool. But alas nothing is sacred…..http://marfapublicradio.org/blog/residents-considering-possibility-of-more-drilling-in-the-balmorhea-area/. The article says that a rig popped up in Balmorhea in late 2015. It also said, “Texas Railroad Commission records show the company had 17 new drilling permits approved across the Permian Basin in March, with three permits in Reeves County approved on Wednesday”.

Thank you Perry Cozzen for this beautiful photo of San Solomon Springs.

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.
