Wash, rinse, repeat. Benzene is not the only toxin of concern in the Barnett Shale.
And we don’t really know what all is in our air because,according to this WFAA report, they only conducted testing on 44 sites not the 94 they mentioned previously.
Scientists revealed potentially hazardous levels of benzene were found in the air at or near about half of the 44 facilities included in the study.
TCEQ loves to juggle the numbers. The truth is: 21 of the 44 sites that were actually tested had high levels of benzene.
