Fulson Drill Site, Arlington, TX
Operated by Chesapeake
One week has passed since the walls came down, and we are still hearing the hum. The hum is waking us up at night, and the hum is causing pain in our heads and eardrums. Since our city was unable to figure out where that noise was coming from, we decided to take a peek for ourselves. This short video allows you to hear it. This is a generator for spot lights. Why couldn't our city figure this out and correct the nuisance? It's not rocket science.
Can these new industrial noises be causing health problems in individuals, specifically dizziness? We are hearing many reports of unexplained dizziness from Arlington residents since the onset of urban drilling. It appears that this 'shale gas syndrome' shares some similarities with wind turbine syndrome in that exposure to low frequency noise can cause vibroacoustic disease.
The industry never warned us about all of this. All they said was that we would never know they were here.
