You may want to keep the TCEQ complaint info handy

We may be getting fracked again here in FloMo so don't forget to keep the TCEQ odor and health complaint info handy.

In 2010, we found close to 60 odor and health complaints on the TCEQ website made by residents right here in Flower Mound. No violations have been issued to date. We understand it can be disappointing at times. Our advice is keep calling and reporting. Even if the odor or symptoms go away by the time the TCEQ shows up. Log times, symptoms, and description of odors.

Persistence pays off. Just this year, the TCEQ issued fines for air quality violations against an energy company drilling on the Barnett Shale. In one of the articles below, it states that the fines issued in March of this year were the first ever on the BS. Recently another was issued.

Click here and here to read about these cases.

The TCEQ complaint info is located on the right had side of the blog.
