   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.

  Construction notice from City of Arlington

    Some DWG citizens might use this route, so the city wanted everyone to

    be aware:

    Due to the construction of the Arbrook-Melear Drainage Project, City of

    Arlington Project No. 90001, we will be closing Melear Drive.  The road

    closure is scheduled to occur on April 21, 2014 and last through June 19, 2014.

    Melear Drive from Point Trail to Treetop Trail will be closed.  Just south of

    Point Trail we will be completely excavating the roadway and will be

    removing the existing culvert and installing 2 new culverts.  We will also be

    replacing the water line and the sanitary sewer line in this area while we

    have it excavated.  Once we are done, we will be rebuilding the road. 

    Weather permitting all this work will be completed within the 60 day road

    closure window.

  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.
