Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) Rules for Huckabay (Erath Co) Texas in N Barba Disposal Well Case

3 October 2007 at 10:16:46 AM

Letter to the editor in the Stephenville paper

Dear Editor,

It’s not over til it’s over, BUT, it IS finally over. As most people have already heard, we received notice that the Texas RRC had received a request to withdraw its permit application for a Commercial Oil and Gas Waste Disposal Well at Huckabay, TX from the legal firm representing N Barba Enterprises.

The request for withdrawal “with prejudice” has been granted by the RRC examiners who heard the case. This ruling means that N Barba Ent cannot file another permit application at this location.

This is the end result of which we, the citizens of Erath County and all who benefit from the Trinity Aquifer, have been trying to achieve for almost a year.

Everyone should be considered a winner for this. In this instance, this is a strong step for protecting our precious water supply. The system worked and though it was a slow process, the correct decision was made.

Many people worked hard and many long hours getting organized and preparing for the hearing in Austin.

Thanks go to many including Bill Gordon along with ECCCW for the continual attention and alerts regarding the oil and gas industry in their quest to do whatever, wherever they choose, irregardless of the imposition of the area residents. Sid Miller, our state representative, Joe Cooper, Middle Trinity Water District, Tab Thompson, Erath County Judge, Mark Murphy, Stephenville City Councilman, first with letters of protest, then speaking at the hearing in Austin. Randy Lowe, Erath County Commissioner for his show of support. Troy Frasier, TX State Senator, for his letter of support. Cheryl Floyd, Superintendent of Huckabay ISD, bringing resolutions from Huckabay ISD, Stephenville ISD, and Morgan Mill ISD along with other concerned residents speaking at the hearing including another resolution from the Foster’s Home for Children submitted by Glenn Newberry. All the resolutions were against the endangerment of our water supply and many expressed concerns over traffic safety issues regarding the potential of approx 200 semi trucks on Hwy 108 daily. To Alex Fambro who was leader of the opposition group. Cameron Fambro, Hydrologist, who has extensive knowledge of the Trinity Aquifer and his exquisite testimony at the hearing. Also to our attorney, Lloyd Mueninck, who never said that we couldn’t win.

Thanks to all the efforts of support of economic, time, work and emotional support by area citizens and especially to the good folks who took time out of their schedules to make the trip to Austin for the hearing itself.

It took everyone’s involvement to get this positive ending.

Thanks to all,

Roger & Bonnie Pack
