Shiloh Wilk: We took the list down to Dallas City Hall when they were making the final decision, and we got replies from many officials.
A new gas drilling permit could allow up to 20 gas wells including storage tanks, pipelines, and other facilities to operate for 20 years or more on the field just across the Trinity River from North Hills Prep. These wells could allow over 75-100 tons of pollutants into the air annually. North Hills Prep is North-West of the drilling facilities, and is down wind. The pollutants and toxins released from these wells WILL affect North Hills and the residences surrounding it. Toxins released this way can and have caused Leukemia, severe Asthma, rashes, headaches, nosebleeds, and more. They have affected populations FURTHER from wells drilled this way than North Hills is. Last year, the City Plan Commission voted 7-5 against this permit. The gas company and City Hall were not pleased with this result and are now engineering a second "do-over" vote. Only a strong showing of concerned parents and citizens can stop this rollback of a victory we've already won.

Please stop the proposed drilling and processing of natural gas next to North Hills Preparatory School in Irving, Texas. The toxins given off by the wells in such a close proximity to schools and residences will put the wellbeing of many men, women, and children in the area at risk.
THEY TURNED DOWN THE PERMITS! IT'S DONE! THANKS A TON EVERYONE. We took a physical copy of all of your signatures down to city hall when they were deciding on the fate of the oil wells, and they turned the oil wells down. Thanks again.
