UPDATE 2/13/2019 Video has details too…
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcnzp9yYS2o
I suspect it is Balmorhea Fishing Resort and RV Spaces
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.

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…..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”.
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!!”
