  XTO NOTICE, May 21, 2015:

   May 21. 2015
   Dalworthington Gardens, Texas
   A brief release of natural gas occurred at the Elkins padsite earlier today as a  

   result of normal wear on the wellhead choke.
   At approximately 8:30 AM an XTO lease operator received a text from a 

   contract gas well inspector advising of a neighbor’s complaint about    

   operations 

   at the Elkins pad. Shortly thereafter the XTO lease operator arrived at the

   location and determined that through normal flow of production at the Elkins

   #1H the wellhead choke had cut through a small portion of the choke body  

   causing a brief release of natural gas and the activation of the automatic

   shut-in control system. After the brief release a loud sound of gas flowing from

   the separator to the on-site compressor may have been experienced but no 

   release occurred after the well was automatically shut in. A Dalworthington

   Gardens public safety officer arrived at the location with the XTO lease

   operator and tested the area around the wells with a gas meter to ensure that

   the release was contained and no dangerous conditions existed. At no time

   during the event was there a risk to the health or safety of the nearby

   residents.
   XTO will replace the choke and resume production operations as soon as 

   practical.

 Water/Drought Update

  The following information is from the Tarrant Regional Water District.

  North Texas continues to be in the grips of severe to extreme drought  

  conditions.  Rainfall for 2014 was close to 15 inches below average resulting in

  one of the driest years on record. 

  The Tarrant County District reservoir storage is currently holding at 61.5%. For

  now, rains and low customer demands are helping to keep lake levels above

  the Stage 2 drought trigger of 60%.

  However, the probability that we will reach the 60% drought trigger within the

  coming weeks remains high.  

  Stage 2 drought restrictions have the same water use limitations as in Stage 1,

  with the exception of landscape irrigation being limited to no more than once

  per week. A preliminary landscape irrigation schedule has been included in the

  attached water supply update. Please click below, for further information and

  the update. Tarrant County Water/Drought update

   Gardens. XTO is also resuming production of the existing gas wells at this site.

   Currently, two of the new wells are flowing to the sales meter, and XTO

   expects to begin production for the other two new wells on Oct. 9  During

   these activities, you may experience an elevated sound level, muffled sounds

   of engines and some trucks accessing and exiting the site. These fully

   supervised activities are completely normal with this phase of production

   operations. XTO expects to conclude the activities as soon as practical.

  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.
