Joe Pool Lake = Gasland Lake
This is Joe Pool Lake in Southwestern Dallas County. See the large black shapes we have drawn on the right hand side? Those are proposed drill sites. The top one is application Z090-226 that is waiting on approval in Dallas City Hall. The lower shape highlights proposed drill sites near the entrance to the park/lake. So while you camp, swim, and boat, you can get some gas too. Methane, Formaldehyde, Benzene, and many more contaminants. Z090-226 comes before the city planning commission in February, 2011. Everything else you see is CURRENT DRILLING GOING ON THE SHORES OF JOE POOL LAKE.
What do you think will eventually happen to the quality of Joe Pool Lake water? Since the City of Dallas wants to make this a source of water for us by 2014, what guarantees will we have to the purity of that water. Would you care to swim or ski in it next summer? Remember, this is just current drilling. Thoughts?
