Here are some short videos.

Fish Creek Neighbor says
As usual, our City has a ready explanation, blaming it on the weather. It’s time for the Fish Creek Neighbors to put aside some of that gas royalty money to pay for our own independent testing.
fwiw – we had a pretty sizable fish kill in the pond fed by Rush Creek in our neighborhood last week – nothing that we know of is going on at the pad site, which is downstream of the site anyway.
Do you know if any pipeline construction was happening during that time? TCEQ reported a fish kill in North Richland Hills last year caused by the laying of gas gathering pipelines. The pipelines pose just as great a danger as the pad sites, if not more danger. They are going in everywhere.
Good question. I’ve seen some disturbing pictures of pipeline laying and recently learned they use chemicals like surfactants and who knows what else for that process.
