More Air Quality Tests For Fort Worth

More air quality tests are planned for Fort Worth. This time Mayor Moncrief wants extensive testing of the air and the use of city revenue from gas drilling to fund the testing. Many residents have lost faith in the TCEQ after the last set of air testing was performed in the Barnett Shale area. A city spokesperson had this to say.

If there's evidence of a pollution problem, the City Council may be willing to rewrite the city's natural gas drilling ordinance to further protect residents.

"If the ordinance needs to be rewritten, I believe the council and the mayor are ready to do that," city spokesman Jason Lamers said.

We can only hope that this set of testing will be done properly.
