Day Four of Chesapeake contaminated air spill, residents sick, local media told to keep quiet
Local media has been given the red light on covering day four of an air venting operation in Arlington, Texas by Chesapeake Energy. Our contacts have told us that no one has from Chesapeake,TCEQ, or local media have responded to reports of the contaminatedair spill or the reported illnesses from residents in Arlington.
TXSHARON has been receiving numerous calls and emails from area residents who have been suffering from the ill effects as a result of the air spill. They have told Sharon that the City of Arlington and Chesapeake have ignored all calls and not responded to any emergency notifications. TCEQ has refused to come out to the site.
Some have thought that the process known as ‘green completion’ was being practiced but due to the large amounts of illness reports, there has been speculation that the toxicity of the air spill is great enough to cause some of the reported ill effects.
TXSHARON along with staff is keeping close tabs on the situation and will continue to update the situation.
