Now if we could just get an air
monitor in Deafstone County.
They have approved it in the
budget 2 times,and caved. I
suspect 'conflict of interest'.
Allison is Wise County given Aruba Petroleum's behavior and investigations by the TCEQ and Trinity Ground Water Conservation District should at least be considered as a runner up for a continuous air monitor. If the TCEQ agrees we will gladly allow them to place it on our property.

Thank goodness for Sen. Wendy Davis!!!
I think Allison would blow every other area off the charts. The air looks like a densely populated area during the summer now thanks to the CAD trio (Chesapeke, Aruba, Devon).
I have an office on the 2nd floor of a building at 380 and I-35 facing west and I cannot tell where the land ends and the bad air begins on many days.
As bad as we think we have it in towns like Denton, Corinth, Flower Mound, Bartonville, Argyle, and Double Oak at least we have a voice.
Wise County does not care and Allison is an unincorparated part of Decatur so it is like the WILD WILD WEST out there.
Where is the newpaper coverage when they flare, dump waste into Denton Creek, kill cattle, torment families, and ruin property values?
You know what I have come to realize during this struggle?
IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT ME OR MY NEIGHBORHOOD BUT EVERYONE WHO'S LIFE IS IMPACTED IN A NEGATIVE WAY BY GREED!
The sooner we all start acting like one community the sooner we will make great progress in improving our quality of life.
The pollution from uncontrolled and unregulated gas well drilling know no county or state lines.
We need the feds to step in. We need consistent rules that apply to everyone.
You're correct TxSharon. The feds need to take over in Tx as a national example. Federalize the WCEQ or simply padlock the doors!
