We have a slight water shortage in Texas. The worst drought in recorded history.
But there is no shortage of water at the High Point Church in Arlington. They have a great big duck pond full of water that comes from an Arlington fire hydrant. And the pastor says they have some “Super Natural Gas.” You can watch a video and see pictures of the duck pond in PART 1 of the tale of “Fracking with Holy Water” at Westerchester Gasette blog.
When that duck pond–full to the brim of High Point Church’s holy water–started going down, down, down, local residents got suspicious and decided to follow the shiny pipe road. The water flows into the church’s lake from an Arlington city fire hydrant and is then pumped out of the church’s lake by a Chesapeake Energy water pump. Then it makes its way to
Grand Prairie where there is a moratorium on using city water to frack because…see map above another location in Arlington. So the church is acting as some kind of water middle man for a profit? We’re not sure. Weird. Don’t miss PART 2 of Fracking with Holy Water. It’s a nice piece of citizen journalism.
I would like to know what kind of profit that holy Water is bringing.
