Air & Water Quality
DISH, Texas Air Monitoring Report by Wolf Eagle Environmental
Wolf Eagle Environmental Engineers and Consultants, LLC (“Wolf Eagle”) was retained by Mayor Calvin Tillman and the people of DISH, Texas (“Client”) to perform an Ambient Air Monitoring Analysis study in the Town of DISH. The purpose of the study is to characterize the ambient air quality in the Town of DISH. DISH (previously called Clark) is located in Denton County, Texas and has a population of approximately 200 people.
DISH is a bedroom community located between the cities of Ponder and Justin in Denton County, Texas. It is comprised of primarily residential homes on acreage surrounded by rural atmosphere. Many of the residents have horse breeding farms. Recent gas well development and erection of numerous compression stations have residents concerned about the environmental impact on the Town, residents, livestock, as well as concerns for impact on property value. The Barnett Shale geologic formation runs under the Town of DISH. Development of the gas industry in a residential area can cause degradation of Quality of Life (QOL), general annoyance to human populations, as well as noise, air, water, soil contamination and vibrational disturbance of foundations of buildings. Recently, seismic anomalies have been seen in the areas of North Texas where gas drilling and exploration activities were ongoing. These are inconsistent historically with seismic activity. Research is currently in progress to assess whether drilling has been a precursor to the recent seismic activity.
