I took some pictures of a Barnett Shale Class II Commercial Injection Well near me. This site was inspected and found to be safe and in compliance by the Texas Railroad Commission a few days before I took these pictures.
I watched and waited and took more pictures.
Brandon Evans wrote, Commercial disposal well raises concerns, for the Wise County Messenger. His investigations found evidence in the nearby creek bed of the same spillage found at the site.
A friend took more pictures and did some investigations.
Today I got the results of the latest inspection report. Since the well is still out of compliance, the Texas Railroad Commission district office is taking the following actions:
Pursuant to the provisions of Statewise Rule 9(6)(A)(i, iii) this district office is filing a request for a hearing to cancel the disposal permit issued to the subject lease. Additionally a severance is being issued against the lease for failure to comply with the cited rules.
Apparently there will be one less place for Barnett Shale operators to dump their toxic soup.
