Here are some pictures of a Barnett Shale Class II Commercial Injection Well. This is what Fort Worth residents are fighting to keep out of their neighborhoods.
Never, ever, has this injection well had an attendant present. All class II commercial injection wells are required to have a 24 hour attendant on duty every day. Since the Texas Railroad Commission is required to inspect class II injection wells one might think this situation would be corrected but it’s been this way for years now.
I know the well is still in operation because I’ve taken several pictures from the road of trucks dumping.
Wise County has 27 commercial injection wells and 3 more have been permitted. That’s more than any other Texas County. Two of those wells have already failed.
So Cowtown, how would you like to have one of these in your backyard?
