I attended both of these meeting and there was only one "pro-gas" person who attended. He stated that "there are no chemicals in the water".....and you guys say we don't get our facts straight?

I was driving by he Wilson site on Scenic. Not only is that pit there, (for what?) - but they have put up a blast wall. Like the ones they put around drill sites. What is that for? What is going behind he wall?

Do they have to obtain permits for anything? Homeowners do for fences, pools, etc. Again, industrial sites with industrial rules do not belong in neighborhoods with residential rules.

Wilson's site is changing.....

Does anyone know what's going on at the Hilliard site? Did they dismantle and remove the rig and wall because the drilling is complete? Or is it because they've given up since the leases expired?

Our guess is they are waiting for the decisions on the Rule 37 exceptions.

Wait, I'm confused, Cherokee Horn told us years ago that drilling would only take 30 days, we would barely notice they were there, and then they would never come back.
Was that a lie?

I posted my question in the wrong blog post, my apologies. Guess we'll have to wait and see what they do regarding the Rule 37 exceptions.

To me it seems sill, though, that everything would be torn down if they were going to finish drilling later. Perhaps it's my hopeful thinking, but perhaps they're just pulling out of this drilling site because it won't be worthwhile to them.

Then again, who can understand these drilling companies's rationale anyway.

They're not pulling out and it will still be valuable to them, but I will be enjoying the new dog park @ Hilliard field I heard about.
