DWG/Elkins/Veterans – Work Scope: New Well Hookup and Pad Rebuild
Continue work on separators and separator containment. We will be working
Roustabouts on location – Dressing out separators, building containment and
installing containment walls, landing separators, digging and installing flow lines.
Companies: Affirm (roustabouts and welder), Renegade (crane), Global Logic
Equipment: Crane, Backhoe
XTO has completed the shallow excavation and lined the area for the
produced water tank containment. Beginning Monday, Sept. 8th, XTO will set
the production tanks and begin the plumbing work for the steel piping
between the wells, separators and produced water tanks. The following should
be expected: truck traffic, welding, grinding and related pipefitting activities
while XTO installs and pressure test these vessels over the next two weeks.
XTO Oil & Gas Update and Notice:
Recently, XTO drilled five new wells at the well site. The next step is to
complete the wells by hydraulically fracturing them, which requires access to
fresh water. XTO will construct a temporary storage tank to store up to 43,000
barrels of fresh water and will purchase the water from the City. The water
will come from the city’s water supply and will be distributed through fire
hydrants. No water will be used from Pappy Elkins Lake.
XTO will prepare a 200’ x 200’ area in the northeast corner of Elkins Park to
install the tank. The specific location is the open field area at the corner of
Elkins and Roosevelt between the City marquee and the baseball diamond.
The City Council has limited the time the tank can exist to 12 weeks from the
date of installation. If an extension beyond the 12 weeks is required, XTO
must come back to the City Council for approval. Please click on the below
links for further information. For XTO lease information and past oil and
gas correspondence, please go to the City Council tab (where agendas and
minutes are located) and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Water restriction notice:
The primary focus of Stage 1 actions is to significantly reduce outdoor
watering, which can account for as much as 50 percent of the daily residential
water used during the summer. Stage 1 limits outdoor watering with an
irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler to a maximum of two assigned days per
week for all customers. Residential customers whose addresses end in odd
numbers (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) are permitted to water lawn and landscapes only on
Sundays and Thursdays. Addresses ending in even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8 or 0) may
water on Saturdays and Wednesdays only. Non-residential customers, including
apartments, businesses, parks and common areas, can water only on Tuesday
and Fridays. No watering is allowed on Mondays.
The time of day restriction, which prohibits outdoor watering with sprinklers
between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., continues to be in effect.
Watering by hand-held hose, drip irrigation or soaker hose is allowed at any
time. Residents are encouraged to limit such watering to a maximum of two
hours per day.
Other Stage 1 measures include the following.
- Vehicle washing is limited to the use of hand-held buckets and a hose with a positive shutoff valve. Vehicles may be washed at any time at a carwash.
- No hosing of buildings or other structures for purposes other than fire protection.
- Encouraging no hosing of paved areas, such as sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc.
- Encouraging hotels, restaurants and bars to serve water only upon request.
- Establishing new turf is discouraged, and a variance is required to do so.
