Get yer water well tested $10 bring sample to Crowley TX on 8/18/16

Being on the steering committee for the Village Creek-Lake Arlington Watershed Protection Plan has its perks….

  1. register to attend TWON,
  2. pick up a FREE test kit,
  3. watch an online video of how to obtain your sample,
  4. the night before or the day of take your sample and
  5. bring to Crowley Recreation Center on 8/18/16 and pay $10 to have it analyzed for nitrates, total dissolved solids, and bacteria.

One scarey thing I have learned is that the headwaters originate in Johnson County albeit dry and not much flowing going on….the flow goes north FYI.

Here is the email I received, please let others with water wells know about this ….

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.
