EagleRidge ignores fracking worker safety

October 16, 2013 • Sharon Wilson

We already know that EagleRidge is a terrible neighbor!

  1. An EagleRidge Operating worker was indicted in June 2012 on a felony charge of illegally dumping. City employees visiting the company’s well site in the 3100 block of Airport Road found a pump forcing contaminated water into a tributary of Hickory Creek. LINK
  2. EagleRidge was operating wells in Denton without a permit. LINK
  3. EagleRidge had a blowout in Denton that got "sanitized." LINK But it didn't stay "sanitized." LINK
  4. EagleRidge is drilling in a Denton neighborhood less than 200 feet from homes.
  5. EagleRidge is drilling in Mansfield and polluting air, violating sound ordinances and dividing neighbors. LINK
