Samples from Dish in the lab
State picks 28 residents at random to test for possible toxic exposure

State officials agreed to biological sampling after the town of Dish paid for its own air quality study. Chemist Wilma Subra, together with the Oil and Gas Accountability Project and its Texas chapter, followed that study with a survey that showed many of the health symptoms residents were experiencing could be associated with exposure to toxic substances.
The testing procedures used by TDSHS were questioned at the Town Hall meeting. Many in attendance lacked faith that state testing would be conducted in an impartial manner without industry influence. You can read about the testing methods in the Denton Record Chronicle article.
