Coincidentally, that is the same height as a fracking drill tower. They even said that it would not have guide wires. That led me to believe that it was going to be planted quite deep into the ground. My house would have been within 500 feet of the tower.



    You lose some and you win some.
    pretty darn stupid,id have no problems with them fracking outside city limits,so long as it wasnt a danger to the areas water,but inside city limits is a little too far.

    What difference does it make?

    Oh, well! So much that insignificant little crusade, based on bull****.

    Looks like Denton's town government doesn't have the power to ban anything.

    Another demonstration of the empirical reality that the democratic process is very much an illusion. Self government is very much an illusion.

    More like: liberty has prevailed, once again. Who are these anti-fracers to put property rights up to a vote, based on lies?

    There are 270 wells inside the Denton city linits. Life hasn't ceased to exist, as predicted.

    You are just showing the parking lot. You need to have one of these to drill down a mile and a half, then drill horizontally.

    None of those 270 wells is currently fracking. They are older gas and oil straight line wells. Very few of them have been producing anything in quite some time.

    According to the anti-fracer website, those are working wells and I bet most were fraced to make them producable. You understand that fracing isn't an ongoing process, right?

    1) It's hardly mistakable for a communications tower.

    2) That's a drilling rig. It is moved off location before the fracing is done.

    3) No, that's not the, "parking lot".

    See the crane? That's the wellhead, there in the middle of the location.

    Here's another view:
