This is tragic. It’s not Tourettes’ but it’s a Tourettes’ like malady.

Sorry, but putting a gas well near schools is criminal.

Checked Google Earth about this last week and one of those wells and the condensate tank is 155 feet from the corner of the school building. 155 FEET!!
In the Google Earth shot you can clearly see kids milling around within 175′ like they out are having a fire drill or something. Condensate tanks vent 24/7/365 directly to the atmosphere.

That’s insane. Clearly putting profits over public safety.

I’ve also heard through unofficial sources that there are compressor stations in the area as well. They are subject to condensate vents and frequent “blow downs” used to purge the pipelines of unwanted gasses and moisture.
