The lady that took the video messaged me “….the supervisor didn’t appreciate it (this video) very much that even though I didn’t mention anyone’s name. He didn’t like it that it was posted because it’s saying that he’s not doing his job. Because he needs to be testing the water. Getting water samples and sending them to get tested and it wasn’t my intention to get him involved. My thoughts is that he should have known about this if it was already happening. My son feels that he might retaliate against him…because he wasn’t told about this. But like I told my son is the supervisor of the lake should have known already”

///////////The TexWells UTA Clear response …”We are unaware of anyone having methane in their water in Balmorhea. If you can please forward these folks on to us then we will gladly help them out please have them email me at and I’ll be happy to go out there and test their water for free as part of our study

Here is the song I wrote about Balmorhea, the Oasis in West Texas….

“No this has nothing to do with the pool. The lake is 4 to 5 miles give or take. The city of Balmorhea is 4 miles from the pool. The lake is 2 miles southeast from Balmorhea. The lake has properties around the lake that people can rent out. Most people that live there have mobile homes or small homes there at the lake.”

Would you be able to provide any more specific location information? Before I pass this on to our District Office folks, I would need to tell them where to look.

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



video from UTA CLEAR

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….. 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.

A Facebook post says, “The Water District has entered into a contract with Apache to sell ‘surface water’ from the lake for up to 10 wells!!”  

Here is the FB page to like -contact Jeff Davis County Underground Water Conservation District Janet Adams General Manager P.O. Box 1203. Fort Davis, Texas 79734. Telephone:(432) 426-3441.

Also contact TX Wildlife & Fisheries-but don’t expect much from that entity …

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.
