Mansfield's Gas Well Drilling and Production Ordinances do not reflect protective technology or science that is available. While other Texas Cities have updated their gas well ordinances to include this new science, Mansfield still remains out of step with that change. Mansfield is already saturated with 206 drilled gaswells with another 306 permitted to drill. This activity has brought increase in nuisance odors, traffic, noise, and air pollution. Concerns have emerged regarding safety, excess water consumption, aesthetics of neighborhoods and property values. We have to work together to develop a progressive community with proactive ordinances, protect citizen rights and be a place for future generations to thrive.

Proposed Changes:

- 1500-Foot Buffer Zone for Homes, Schools, Daycare Centers, Parks, and Nursing Homes

- All Electric Wells and Compressors

- State-of-the-Art Air Pollution Controls for Current and Future Wells

- Continuous Air and Water Monitoring

- Better Enforcement and Emergency Response
