    Were there monitors/sensors on this well and if so what were the recorded emissions over a 48 hour period? Same question for ground water quality if applicable. Seems if you’re going to build a case for or against Gas well drilling, fracking, and continued production in an area, it would be good to have supporting evidence over a sampling of wells over a set period of time.

    If the EPA is showing this video, I can assure you that they know much more about this site than they are telling.

    Until we have factual data about emissions our case will not be won in the court that has decision making power. Public opinion based on “????” is just that, questionable. I grew up on a farm just North (4 miles) of Midlothian (moved here in 1949 pre Cement Plants) and now live on that same farm and am 2 miles due North of Holsum Cement. I feel the shock waves every day about 2:30 PM from blasting in their quarry to free up more rock. I drink well water (unfiltered with no additives) from the Eagle Ford formation about 850 down. I walk 4 1/2 miles a day in 55 minuets on my path at the farm in the middle of the afternoon. I also feed many species of wild birds (some South American) and animals (squirrels, rabbits, coons, and possum) that congregate in my back yard. I have plenty of fire ants but notice that we no longer have “Horned Toads”. I seem to have everything else we’ve always had with the addition of “Pot Belly pigs” and Ferrel Hogs. I find life no different than from 60 years ago except for the increased road traffic and Airplane noise. If my air and environment are being polluted I feel it’s more because of tail pipe emissions than Industry. Guess that’s the price we pay for having such a great place to live.

    Come on down for a walk in nature. By the way, I walk with 5 lb. weights in each hand and barefoot. I know, I just lost all credibility, however, I am pretty healthy for a 70 year old.
    Happy Trails.
