Residents say gas well fracking polluted air in Colleyville, Southlake

Private residents took air samples during Titan Operating’s hydraulic fracturing of a natural gas well between the two cities. According to a news release Tuesday morning from Earthworks’ Oil and Gas Accountability Project, an environmental organization, the tests found emissions of toxic chemicals, including some that were over Texas state guidelines for long- or short-term exposures.

“We paid for tests because we can’t depend on the city or the fracking industry,” Colleyville resident Kim Davis said in the release. “The tests confirmed our worst fears, while Colleyville ignored their own tests to let fracking continue. Apparently the city represents Titan and the gas industry instead of local residents.”

No word yet from Colleyville or Southlake officials, Fort Worth-based Titan Operating LLC, or the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, which sets the health-effects screening levels that the group cited.
