Bluff Dale, Texas Meeting on Waste Injection Wells-Fight Them!

20 December 2006 at 1:00:39 PM

We weren't able to make it due to inclement, very foggy weather, but the Stephenville paper has an article.

A standing room only crowd listened intently late Tuesday as the leader of a Wise County citizens group told the gathering to never give up when trying to stop companies from locating potential water contaminating oil and gas waste disposal wells in Erath County.

“Folks don’t give up. Please don’t give up. Because if you do, they’re going to walk all over you,” said Jim Popp, chairman of the Board of Directors for Wise County’s “Texas Citizens For A Safe Future And Clean Water.” ...

Appearing at a “Town Hall” meeting in the Bluff Dale Fire Hall, Popp relayed the woes his group has endured in trying to fight oil and gas waste disposal wells. He also gave examples of how the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC), which regulates the oil and gas industry, has been more of a hindrance than a help.

“You’re dealing with one of the most corrupt systems in the United States,” Popp said, referring to the RRC and how the RRC is set up solely to “protect and serve oil and gas.”

He also pointed out that it isn't saltwater that gets injected, it's TOXIC WASTE.
