Newly constructed medical office building adjacent to the Rocking Horse Gas Drill Site located near the intersection of South Collins Street and Caplin Drive in Arlington, TX.
This Moat-like frac pond used to be where the newly constructed medical office building is now located. We hope they tamped down the soil well enough. Arlington's Mayor and the developer wanted Chesapeake to remove the frac pond in order to develop that land. Click here to see that Epic City Council meeting where Mayor Cluck tells Charles Davis of Chesapeake that they can drill 80 wells there if they want to. (Mr. Davis is no longer employed by Chesapeake.)
From the side door to the retaining wall we counted 25 footsteps which equates to roughly 21 feet! We did not measure the additional few feet from the edge of the wall to the edge of the padside, but it appears to be less than 20 feet.
- A 600 foot setback is far from being protective; however, if this setback applies to existing developments, it should also apply for future ones. Otherwise, we just have another gaping loophole big enough for a Mack truck to drive through. Just because something is legal doesn't make it morally right. Where are all the right-wing Christian legislators when we need them most?
