This PROGRAM is in response to when we found out after the fact that pharmaceuticals were in Arlington’s drinking water….I guess we have to wait and see what kind of PROGRAM Arlington initiates after the “FRACK” is found in our drinking water…oh wait, there already was a frack spill in Lake Arlington…and also by coincidence? our TTHM’s have almost tripled since urban drilling…hmmm we don’t seem to get getting with the PROGRAM to take HB40 to the Supreme Court to ban a ban on fracking bans!
