Subject: {NCTCA} Texas info on…research relating to Oil & Gas Activity and Impacts
Thank you for the video link, I have updated my blog to add that to my response to Nick’s coverage in the Oil & Gas Journal, where I disagreed that Texas had its act together with fracking rules related to NORM. I also mention the risk to drinking water via spills and how trucks carrying produced water to injection wells need tighter manifest regulations. This can be accomplished by re-classifying O&G waste as TENORM so it becomes regulated under the Clean Water Act to reverse its current exemption from tighter regs via the Halliburton Loophole.  https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2018/04/24/sais-researchers-find-frack-water-oversight-gaps-clap-clap-told-ya/
Additionally (without having seen the video yet) I’m sure you guys covered ?? the risk to drinking water relating to microbes proliferating near drill sites that are ARE resistant to traditional forms of disinfection such as chlorine? I think its our good luck to find this out because chemical attempts to clean up O&G production waste waters worsens the toxicity in TTHMS etc..which I call “frack on crack”. Please take a look at UTA Clear’s work in using what I call “good” microbes (a NON-chemical way) to reduce TOC and prevent frack on crack….https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2018/04/06/erin-brockovich-visited-north-tx-is-the-arlington-connection-to-increased-thms-fracking-induced-microbial-proliferation/
Thank you and please pass this info on as appropriate.

Dear Kim,
 
Thank you for your interest in my team’s presentation at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in conjunction with SAIS and Clean Water Action (CWA). Nick Snow from the Oil & Gas Journal kindly wrote a news article covering our presentation.
 
I am Joniel Cha, a graduate Masters Student at Johns Hopkins University studying Economics and Energy, Resources & Environment. In addition to this report, I wrote a White Paper on the Management of Dams with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
 
I worked with the SAIS/CWA team covering oil & gas activity and impacts in the United States. My focus area covered oil and gas activity in the state of Colorado.
 
The JHU SAIS staff kindly recorded our presentation. Please find the link here: https://youtu.be/TCp-lHO6xZ8?t=1966

Oil and Gas Retrieval: Environmental Risks and Impacts on Water An overview of conventional vs. unconventional retrieval, waste pits, TENORM, and case study …
 
 
If you would like, please feel free to watch the presentation in its entirety, with four presentations:
 
  • Unconventional vs. Conventional Oil and Gas Activities: Differences in Definition and Regulation
  • TENORM: Analysis of Potential Exposure and Regulation
  • The Prevalence and Dangers of Disposal into Open Pits in Texas
  • Colorado Case Study: Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing
 
Additionally, please feel free to distribute this widely among your networks and colleagues, and anyone who may be of interest.
 
I am currently finalizing my report, and any feedback you and your colleagues may have would be most helpful.
Hopefully my report will be published, and I will be more than happy to send it to you.
 
Thank you very much again! I look forward to hearing from you.
 
Sincerely,
Joniel

Subject: Need local control rule added to gaswell ordinance-SAIS researchers find gaps in unconventional oil, gas regulations
This article makes it sound like Texas has regulations concerning radionuclides, but I’ve blogged on the contrary…
Can someone help me find the report (see article on the report below) that the Oil & Gas Journal reported on entitled, “SAIS researchers find gaps in unconventional oil, gas regulations”.   UPDATE here is a youtube video of the presentation, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCp-lHO6xZ8&feature=youtu.be&t=1966 
I have also found a loophole where the truck manifests are laxed in carrying produced water which is exempt from Clean Water Act where Class II O&G related injection wells are not as stringent as others…..by definition ALL O&G produced water that has been brought to the surface by man’s technology contains TENORM and should fall under more stringent regulations for disposal in trucking it to the disposal wells. US DOT = 7 mths response on NORM vs TENORM truck fracking exemptions
Victoria (a responsive councilperson thus far), WE need to reclassify the produced water being trucked out to injection wells as TENORM so as warrant more stringent truck manifest accountability for amounts/truck weight that leave the site and that the same amounts/truck weight arrive at the injection well and no spillage has occurred along the way. Maybe we can amend our gas well ordinance to specify that? It is an above ground activity that is under local control and doesn’t interfere with HB40. Can you get with staff to add this to our ordinance?
Thanks

SAIS researchers find gaps in unconventional oil, gas regulations

Differences in terminology and oversight approaches have created marked gaps in government regulation of growing unconventional oil and gas activity in the US, a research team of four graduate students at Johns Hopkins University’s School for Advanced International Studies reported on Apr. 19.

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.
