MSD 17-1 Brownfields Near Veridian NEVER 2 B Cleaned Up FYI email council TODAY!

Friends don’t let friends pollute and yes maybe they do! Search HERE at this link to see if YOU live by an MSD/Brownfields

Speech for council meet:
Please deny or at least table MSD 17-1 until a study can be done to see how appropriately Arlington has been spending its 2013 $400,000 federal grant funds on actual clean up verses nice payouts in environmental consulting fees to Terracon and Modern Geosciences?
The requestor of this MSD 17-1 is the now closed “Shred Tech company”…..
shred tech
but please note in the city records the actual name of the owner  of 12700 & 12710 Calloway Cemetery Rd which TAD records show to be owned by Mr. Clyde Godfrey….
godfrey msd king shows Shred Tech was categorized under sand mining….

And if shredding “only God knows what” or mining sand made Mr Godfrey $200K a year, and if the value of his property leans towards a million dollars,  surely he could afford to clean up his own mess?
So what is nearby his property? ….
Account Number:    08384576
Property Location:    12650 CALLOWAY CEMETERY RD, ARLINGTON, 76118
From Google Earth road building kinda looks like sand mining too…

Cylex Business Directory shows Clyde’s 12700 Calloway Cemetery Rd businesses to be related to waste management.  People have wondered if there was a dump on the east side of Collins? Do we now have our answer?

A 2015 snap shot nearby at Clyde Godfrey Equipment Company nearby at 12798 Calloway Cemetery shows what looks like a frac sand hauling truck leaving the area, but that could be again from a neighboring business….

In a 2015 pic link, driving by looks like a red frac sand hauling truck to me at the edge of this pic, but this truck could be related to asphalt construction too.

Frac Sand processing has flocculent and acrylamide contamination issues as reported on THIS link…. although I have not seen what Brownfield contaminants of concern relate to the MSD 17-1

Regardless of which type and levels of toxins were found, and how much was contributed by nearby businesses is still NOT reason for a free pass to forever forgive Brownfields clean up especially near the Arlington Viridian.

I will now ask council to think hard if over the years any MSD agenda item was ever NOT approved? Can you recall MAKING someone clean up their own mess?

If you approve this tonight, TCEQ will rubber stamp this I’m sure.

How convenient Clyde’s brothers own the family business, that has three locations. #failedCollateral

In 2013  I blogged that there were 281 water wells within  5 miles of a legally abandoned Benzene contaminated area near the Cowboy Stadium near my home.

Note as long as the city offers potable water from our municipality AND notify people with water wells in a 5 mile radius, if approved no one can drill for potable water….legally. Personally I’ve seen the notification letter to water well owners and to me it does NOT spell out the real dangers involved:

  1. Leaving contaminants that persist in the ground endanger drinking water sources because….water mains and pipes going into your homes can fail. For example Benzene is the Houdini of hydrocarbons and in Arlington we have trenchless digging to use NON-metal piping that is pigged into existing failed metal piping. YOUR Arlington municipal water may LEAVE the treatment plant as potable, but when traveling through contaminated soils with HDPE or PVC piping, chemicals leaching into the plastic piping cannot be guaranteed to be potable by the time it hits your lips!

  2. One day we may need “all ground water sources on deck”  in the future. So never say never to precious underground water sources if surface water gets ruined with major EVENTS.
  3. No contaminates should get a free pass in Brownfields clean up especially when the federal government offers to assist……

I don’t see that there will be too much protest tonight as a FB page of someone in Arlington also named Clyde Godfrey seems to be FRIENDS with Robert Kembel of the Viridian!….

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.
