An open house and town hall meeting has been scheduled for this Thursday to discuss a proposed natural gas compression station site and wastewater facility in the Bartonville/Argyle area.
The event, to be hosted by State Representative Tan Parker and Denton County Commissioner Andy Eads, will take place this Thursday, Jan. 28, at Harpool Middle School in Lantana.
Bosque Disposal Systems has a permit request before the Texas Railroad Commission for the construction of an injection well to dispose of recovered water used in natural gas drilling on a seven acre site at Jeter and Frenchtown Roads, just outside of Bartonville in unincorporated Denton County.
The proposed wastewater facility sits near one of Bartonville Water’s major freshwater wells that currently produces 1,000 gallons of water per minute, and another freshwater well is under construction nearby, according to a letter sent to the Railroad Commission from Bartonville Water General Manager Jim Leggieri.
In addition, Williams Energy has plans to install several compression stations at the site.
Compression stations have come under scrutiny in recent months due to air quality concerns in the western Denton County town of DISH.
“This is an obvious concern for neighbors and the local water supply corporations,” said Denton County Commissioner Andy Eads.
State agencies will be present to address and educate residents regarding the state’s permitting processes, as well as answer questions pertaining to air and water quality issues associated with drilling in the Barnett Shale.
