Important Reminder: Flower Mound Town Council Meeting, Thursday Night, Dec. 17th

This is a reminder about the the Town Council Meeting tomorrow night, December 17th, 6:00pm at Town Hall.

Recently in the news, the Town of Dish has asked for a Congressional Investigation into how the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Railroad Commission have handled air quality concerns in the Barnett Shale. More information on the effects of the toxic air here in the Barnett Shale area come in daily.

It is important that you SHOW UP AND WRITE LETTERS to the Town Council to support a moratorium on Natural Gas Production until TCEQ and the EPA completes their study of the Barnett Shale Air Quality.

Remember applications for 18 gas wells and a compressor station were received by the Town in the last 30 days. Also, Williams is proposing the Waste Water Collection Facility and waste water pipelines.

There is no limit to the amount of Tanks and Compressors at this Waste Water Collection Facility which they can have, only space limitations.These pipelines will be buried 4 feet underground, may allow portions of residential property to be condemned through eminent domain, and will be pressurized to move the toxic chemicals from anywhere the Company, in this case, William Production, has a well site back to the collection facility. The Town cannot limit the distance so, Flower Mound could become the point of collection for other communities.

The first proposed site is within a 2 mile radius of 4775 Residences (see map). Dr. Armendariz, formerly with SMU and now with the EPA, conducted a recent study indicating that most of the barnett shale air quality issues come from tank batteries and compressor stations.

Again, we can't stress enough how important it is for you to show up to protect your family, health, quality of life and property values.
