From the Mayor of DISH, Texas
I have previously mentioned that we have major concerns about what is in our air here in DISH, TX, because of the 11 natural gas compressors and 3 metering stations that have invaded us here. We have purchased a natural gas detection unit, and we find that we have natural gas lingering on a pretty regular basis. There has been some air studies conducted in the Barnett Shale which have shown many air quality issues, one of which is the smog. As also previously mentioned, I am not some left wing extremist that opposes all energy production. I like my air conditioning this time of year, and really enjoy the heat on the cold winter mornings.
I also have never been put into the position that the natural gas industry and more specifically the natural gas pipeline industry has put me in here in DISH. I still believe we need energy exploration, but we need to do it right, and the manner in which it is being accomplished here, would be appalling to any logical person if the truth gets out there. You may get this vision, by only looking at the massive compressor station facility we have here. I have not found a single person, who believes what they have done to us is fair or reasonable, not even those who work in this industry.
