Liveable Arlington has led campaigns for years to stop setback waivers that reduce distance between gas wells and protected uses like homes, schools, preschools.
SAVE LAKE ARLINGTON
Our Save Lake Arlington campaign in 2017 involved close to 3,000 Arlington and Fort Worth residents in the hearing process for a wastewater injection well planned for the shore of Lake Arlington. The campaign succeeded in stopping the well.
STOPPING DRILLING NEXT TO PRESCHOOLS
In 2020 we led a multi-racial, diverse coalition to stop the permitting of three new gas wells next to an Arlington preschool. The campaign was hailed as an important environmental justice win and widely covered by national media.
