Email Action Item-Will State Force City to Remove Disposal Well Ban in Arlington via HB40?


Thanks to two Arlington citizens for this info!


Thanks FishCreekMonitor for the pic

UPDATE March 1 2017: Turns out they want to drill this disposal well where the red flag is on the west side of Lake Arlington (our drinking water reservoir). Look at the laterals already UNDER the lake. We don’t need any seismic activity, leaks, or spills near there or anywhere.

It remains to be seen if the state will force the city to remove their injection well ban via HB40.

January of 2016 I asked the city to buy up these padsite when they were being auctioned, but my request fell on deaf ears…now karma is biting back.  I hate it when I’m right….we lost the chance to shut in these wells permanently by our drinking water source, Lake Arlington……now we are on track to get an injection well over there thanks to the new owners, Blueridge!

And dRIP to the finance company founder, Richard Rainwater, that backed Bluestone for the 245 million to buy those Quicksilver assets.

Please email  the state…,

Here is a template.
Dear Ms. Jimenez,

My name is_________and my address is_____________,

I am writing to protest the permitting of Bluestone Natural Resources wastewater disposal well with Tracking number 46045 in Newark East field for Cravens lease well number 1.

U R G E N T !!! Bluestone Natural Resources, who bought the Quicksilver pad sites around Lake Arlington, signed a ten year agreement* last year with operators of the Lake Arlington Compressor Station (near our drinking water source) to have them process their natural gas. They are bound to production numbers and expensive compression prices during a time when the oil & gas sector pricing is low.

Naturally, Bluestone is probably looking to cut waste disposal costs by drilling an injection disposal well so they can more affordably dump BTEX, heavy metals, & NORM ladened produced water waste** in Arlington instead of trucking this stuff to disposal wells further outside the city limits like in Venus TX.

Please email ASAP at the below email addresses*** asking in so many words….

Attention Arlington City Council Members and Mayor:

I am writing to request that you uphold our current ordinance on disposal wells in Arlington.  Currently we have a ban on disposing natural gas waste waters that involves forcing dangerous fluids under the ground that risk spills, leaks, and earthquakes. Please keep us, our property and our drinking water safe, thank you.

————EventBrite Link————

And then lets pray that HB41 (the state) won’t override them and force us to force these dangerous fluids under the ground in our town and risk spills, leaks, and earthquakes.

Form W14 ($250 fee per well) to request disposal well is on this link.

*, “Under its agreement with BlueStone, Crestwood will provide natural gas gathering and processing services for a decade using a fixed-fee and percent of proceeds fee structure. BlueStone, in turn, has provided production assurances to Crestwood and agreed to return all currently shut-in wells to production by July 1. BlueStone also agreed not to shut in or choke back production for economic reasons through the end of 2018.

The agreement covers the Alliance, Cowtown and Lake Arlington systems in the Barnett Shale..”

**What is in disposal waste?


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.
