Oh, My.

So here's Part 2 of the story about an Arlington Church's business deal with Chesapeake:

Wednesday, August 31, 2011
High Point Church's Lake

Sunday, September 4, 2011 High Point Church's Lake

Large Hose Hooked Up to Metered Fire Hydrant
Near High Point Church's Padsite on E. Arbrook 
NW Corner of Highway 360 and Interstate 20

Is It a Very Scary Industrial Accident?

Nope.  It's a Ginormous Water Pump. And It's
Sucking Water Out of This Church's Lake

Re-Plenishing the High Point Church's Lake and/or FRAC Pond From that Arlington, TX Fire Hydrant

So, Where is the Water Going?

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

Musical Interlude

Oh, My

Follow, Follow, Follow, Follow

Follow the Yellow Brick...

Follow the Yellow Brick...

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

We're Off to See the Wizard

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!!

Ugh. There's No Place Like Home.
~The End~

Click here to see Part 1 of this story. You won't want to miss that, either.


  1. We're not in Kansas anymore!

  2. Is that a barrel of fracing chemicals next to the 'ginormous' pump?

  3. I think Glenda is back in Kansas but I sure could use those ruby slippers right about now.

  4. No, that's not the chemicals. The 'ginormous' pump is at the beginning of the yellow brick road ~ at the High Point Church.

    It's pumping the water from the Lake at the Church into those pipes that are travelling quite a distance, under Interstate 20, south along the 360 frontage road and eventually making its way to an entirely different Pad Site site on Bardin Road. (See the signage.)

    Lots of fracking chemicals were over there, for sure. It seems to have been quite the journey for this precious water that can never, ever be used again. Amen.

  5. So, did Chesapeake pay less to the Church than they would to the City since they could negotiate a lower price with the Church?

    Is this like helping the poor shale gas driller who needed a handout? This must be in that new Bible.

  6. Highpoint church should be fined for violating Water Restrictions during drought. When they grant the right for their lake to be drained by a gas producer, they violate the law when they refill it. If the lake is fed by certain creeks, etc, they could be violating laws by purposely draining the lake.

  7. @Faith: I don't think this particular body of water is fed by creeks or other bodies of water. It appears to be a stand-alone stock pond. There is definitely something amiss...being irresponsible with our precious water during this Drought should be a huge issue no doubt!!
