Air quality testing finds no issues

Another round of air quality tests shows that Flower Mound residents can breathe easy.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality released the results Tuesday from two air studies conducted on January 21.

 Air samples collected utilizing canisters at two locations near gas well operations owned by Williams Energy show levels of benzene and other volatile organic compounds within safe exposure limits.

One site returned 0.16 parts-per-billion of benzene and the other site returned 0.17ppb, well below the long-term benzene exposure limit of 1 part-per-million suggested by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

A similar study conducted by TCEQ officials on January 13 at two natural gas compressor station facilities in Flower Mound yielded similar results.
