Someone help Dish, TX already!

We've told you about them before, and their mayor that will stop at nothing to try and protect his residents. Too bad there aren't more like him.

TXSharon has a couple of posts and several comments about the independent air quality study done in Dish, TX that you can't afford to miss, no matter where you live.

“Air analysis in the Town of DISH confirmed the presence in high concentrations of carcinogenic and neurotoxin compounds in ambient air near and/or on residential properties.” The report further indicated that many of the compounds in the air exceeded the Short-term and Long-term Effects Screening Levels (ESLs) according to Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regulations.

Mayor Tillman tried every avenue available with state agencies--TCEQ and TRC--but they continually found no problem with DISH air quality.

It's time for the EPA to intervene in Texas!

Calvin Tillman
Mayor, DISH, TX
(940) 453-3640

Please note: DISH, TX is in the middle of the D/FW Metroplex. It's windy here.

And the question is - WHO's next?

Thank you for posting. The answer is: It's already too late. The same chemicals have been found in air throughout the Barnett Shale including in Fort Worth. They may exist to a lesser degree in some areas but they do exist.

And if it's in the air, it's in the water. What's left of it anyway.
