This reader submitted photo shows emissions coming from a Chesapeake Energy well site.
Well site emissions in Booger County. Wonder if the TCEQ could detect this stuff?
At the big meeting in Flower Mound Thursday, one woman who spoke said that drilling belongs in the rural areas not in neighborhoods. Well, thanks a lot! There are neighborhoods in rural areas too and Flower Mound was once a rural area. People live in the country, we grow your food and the food your food eats. We moved to the country for peace and quite to raise our families and our animals. People who live in the country do not want to be poisoned with toxic chemicals and water! Drilling practices in the rural areas are MUCH worse than the sterile operations that so shock you in the city!
Where do you draw the line? Do you actually think contaminated water and air will abide by your wishes and not flow or blow past the boundaries of your municipality? We all share the same air and water.
Why not work together to clean up these process EVERYWHERE so that no family’s health and safety are threatened in the production of the energy that we all use.
