In some areas along my daily commute the fumes from gas wells are so horrendous they permeate my car when I drive through and I have to hold my breath. Often I even put my hand over my mouth and nose. One area is across from a large trailer park where families live. Today the fumes were particularly strong so I stopped to snap a couple of pictures. That’s when I met some of the residents of the trailer park.
They said the fumes get so strong they wake up from a sound sleep at night. There are children living in that area! They play outside.
I promised the mother that I would try to notify someone who might be able to help. Of course, these people can’t afford a lawyer. That’s why this wretched place is across the street from their homes. They’re just collateral damage.
If they could afford a lawyer, maybe they could sue for lost use of their property.
I wonder how long it will be before this happens in Fort Worth. It WILL happen.
