Well Water June 9, 2010 from Runner Susan on Vimeo.
I don’t like much head on my beer and I want none on my water!
Just another mystery brought to the Barnett Shale by Hydraulic Fracturing.

Is that beer?
Tim Ruggiero says
I think Runner is just jealous of our igniting bubbles. I admire her determination to out-do us on Gas Well Drilling Gone Bad. Beer is on me. Actually it looks like you have a pitcher of it already. Ok, I'm going to see what I can find around here to trump this. Given the fact that the operator out here at my place seems to look for new ways to ruin or posion things, It should be a short search. Keep it tuned here, folks, I'll be right back.
They use surfactants in hydraulic fracturing. 2-BE is a clear, odorless surfactant that foams and lubricates the fracking. It's a frack lube 🙂 It causes adrenal tumors. Adrenal function can effect your thyroid and cause reproductive issues.
Have you seen the photos of Runner Susan's hair? That looks like a thyroid issue to me. Same with her dog.
Tim, I have faith in you; or maybe my faith should be in Aruba
Tim Ruggiero says
No faith required- at least on the part of Abooba. It's a given they'll screw up-just a question of what.
More than 6 months after completion of drilling, neither our neighbors or us has seen any real effort to repair the land, clean anything up or 'reclaim' the land for our 'normal use and enjoyment'.
Pinnochio told my neighbor in a recent temperature check that it was too late to plant any grass or trees, we'd have to wait till October. There was some idiot on a tractor spreading grass seed on our respective properties just days before. Again. The grass is growing nicely where I seeded it several weeks AFTER Aruba's first attempt at seeding 'their' site, our former horse pasture.
Im no landscaper, but I think when you spread grass seed on dirt and rock in the hot sun, and rely entirely on rainfall for irrigation, you wind up with dirt and rock and a painful few blades of grass. At least that's what Im looking at when I look out our window.
Looks like our well water in Booger County a year or so ago. Well permanently damaged.
