Who do you call when there is an emergency situation at a Barnett Shale gas facility? Have you ever noticed there are no emergency numbers? The first responders can’t help unless the facility blows up. Who do you call when there is a massive release and you are unable to breathe?
There was a massive release at the Williams Gas Processing Plant in Argyle a few nights ago. The neighbors had no one to call and no way to get relief from the cloying odors that were making them sick and causing muscle pain.
I noticed, when I did the analysis of TCEQ’s response to Barnett Shale odor complaints that quite a few people have to leave their homes regularly and stay in a hotel or with neighbors. That’s pathetic.
