Stronger Enforcement from TCEQ in the Barnett Shale

The TCEQ is hiring six new inspectors just to work in the DFW area. Along with the addition of the inspectors, there will be new standards for the inspections and enforcement. Senator Wendy Davis made the announcement yesterday in a press conference. She said this was a step in the right direction.

Davis said the new measures are a step in the right direction.
“Is that enough? No. Does it take us to a better place than where we are today? Yes,”

here to read the article in the Fort Worth Business Press.

Just recently the TCEQ took enforcement action against Aruba Petroleum out at the Ruggiero's Ranch in Decatur as
previously posted.
