HOW TO REPORT A CONCERN
Lax or nonexistent monitoring of drill sites is, unfortunately, the norm. As such, citizen and bystander reporting and monitoring are critical.
WHAT TO REPORT
Visible emissions & pollution
WHAT TO INCLUDE IN YOUR REPORT
If possible and/or relevant, include the following information in your report:
time, date, and duration of odors
any health impacts
if you couldn't enjoy your property
HOW TO MAKE A REPORT
It is important you make your report both to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and to the City of Arlington. You can report to TCEQ via phone, email, or an online form. Reports to the city should be made to the gas well department. It is never a bad idea to also inform your council person that you have made a report.
