$11 million cost revealed with new Arlington TX Rangers Stadium

In ramped up times of “811-fail-to-call-before-they-dig”, we hear about excavation accidents during construction. The City of Arlington is building a new baseball stadium and other related entertainment venues and will dig the living hell out of the area installing new sewer lines to the tune of $11 million dollars. The city blogger says that the relocation project is being paid for by the Texas Rangers, but it’s hard to believe that in retrospect of the prior misleading Keep Our Rangers campaign. ADDITIONALLY,  per the terms of the Master Agreement, the City committed to paying for up to $500 million, and the Rangers pay for the over runs. So why did the article say the Rangers were paying for the utilities relocation?

I commented about the 811 phone number as a joke but digging so close to two drill sites and in our densely populated area is no joke….

Towntalk reports  that recent federal pipeline safety regulations Title 49 CFR 192.383, require that all public utilities notify all natural gas customers of new excess flow valve (EFV) requirements. “Effective April 14, 2017 EFV installation requirements were expanded to include new or replaced service lines to single family residences, multifamily residences and small commercial customers with natural gas volumes not exceeding 1,000 standard cubic feet per hour (SCFH) and operate at a pressure above 10 pounds per square inch gauge (PSIG). Existing customers also have the right to request the installation of an EFV on their service line if it meets the specified conditions of the rule”.

“An excess flow valve (EFV) is a safety device designed to automatically limit the flow of natural gas when the flow of gas through the device exceeds a predetermined level. If the service line is broken or severed, the EFV activates to limit or stop the flow of gas”.

If you live in a gas drilling town like I do in Arlington Gasland TX, another source of natural gas releasing could be in your backyard drill site…in the case of an uncontrolled release there….you have to wait for your emergency response team to hit the red button emergency manual shut off valve at your pad site. I’ve been advised not to do this on my own or I could be liable for trespassing.  Gee in times of an emergency, do we have time for waiting?  https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2014/10/07/arlington-neighborhood-citizen-designated-red-button-pushers-needed-in-emergencies/

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.
