Tetra Tech’s “update” for 8-13 looks like really OLD information.
Texas Brine put out a “factsheet” on the CPT stuff dated Aug. 15th. They changed their tune about “swamp gas” and mention methane. They have no incident action plan . . . the last one they thought of was a week ago. They are not collecting samples of anything to send to labs for analysis. See p. 4 here (8-13 letter to the Conservation Commissioner). Further the letter admits
they are doing NO TESTING OF:
- Well gas
- underslab samples
- Indoor air
- tilt meters
- InSAR reflector
- stability surveying
- perimeter (of Lake FUBAR) survey
- source water
- industrial well water
- testing for chloride, alkalinity, dissolved gases etc.
