With all due respect the issue of fracking safety is not the same as devaluing of property due to fracking. The same thing could apply ot having a power line put through your property, which happened to me, who wants to live beside a 365,000 V power line? I'm not saying fracking is safe, just pointing out the difference. It is a shame that fracking is turning many areas into industrial zones whether or not it pollutes the water table as well. Obviously you need lots of $$ to sue for loss of property value I would imagine.

The big corporations are trying to do this here in the UK too, they are being met with hoards of protesters sitting in making sure they can't start work. What happened to the progression of green energy? I hope these greedy disgusting excuses for humans realise that they will be leaving such an irreversibly poisoned planet for their grandchildren.
The story is not about Fracking its about the eyesore that the Water tower which the water company wants to erect, to supply the oil companies with water for fracking purposes, its bit like the wind farm of the Connecticut coast with the Kennedy family who had invested in the company but when that company said we want to place them in your line of sight the kennedy's said no you will spoil our view and we will not let you do that by court order.
this water company is trying to make an extra buck by building this tower in the area they can sell a barrel of water for .25-.70 cents and fracking needs anywhere from 400,000 - 2,000,000 barrels of water to complete the process the water company saw a place where they can make a profit the exxon ceo- big bad oil man doesn't want his view disfigured by a WATER TOWER THIS COURT CASE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FRACKING PROCESS UNDER GROUND Y'all are not on the right track.edit on 25-2-2014 by Brit-Tex because: (no reason given)
Is this really about fracking?
In addition to supplying water to the community the tower would sell water for hydraulic fracking
I think talklikeapirat is right in asking this. The water tower in question is simply STORING the water that will potentially be sold to those who will be fracking. I can't find any information pointing any fracking activities to a location near Tillerson's (or Armey's) property.
Mr. Tillerson, 61 years old, moved to Bartonville in 2001 and became CEO in 2006. Since 2007, companies have fracked at least nine shale wells within a mile of the Tillerson home, according to Texas regulatory and real-estate records.
The last to do so was XTO Energy Inc., in August 2009, according to Texas regulators. Mr. Tillerson had just begun talks for Exxon to acquire XTO. Four months later, Exxon swallowed its smaller rival for $25 billion, becoming America's biggest gas producer.
