The City works with the gas well operators to determine a truck route that will have the least impact on traffic as part of the SUP. The gas well operator must use only the streets designated on the approved truck route, and must pay a road damage remediation fee.
Gas wells in production do not create much noise. A gas well may occasionally need the use of a lift compressor to maintain production, but City regulations require that any noise from the compressor above the legal limit must be mitigated.
Cuttings are particles of formation obtained from a well during drilling operations. They are brought to the surface by circulating mud-laden fluid. The cuttings that are created will be transported by truck off location to an approved disposal system. All of the disposal sites have been approved & monitored by the Texas Railroad Commission.
