Thought about buying in Flower Mound but I heard 75028 has bad air pollution due to natural gas drilling. Any thoughts? Our other site is Frisco.

Here are a couple of recent articles you will find interesting

Then the Fort Worth Star Telegram did a piece that most people tested that had toxins in them, were smokers.

Do your due dilligence. Definitely raises questions.

The issue of air quality in Flower Mound has gained some recent attention and there are a number of individuals fighting to halt all drilling for gas in this area. The drilling sites are heavily regulated and meet all the requirements of the State environmental commissions. This issue has been studied and there is no evidence at this time to suggest we have bad air. I've lived in Flower Mound for 13 years, having moved here from Dallas, and I promise you the air is much better here, as there is significantly less traffic and automotive air polution. Flower Mound is very family friendly with ample open space. I encourage you to dig a little deeper and don't let this recent press influence your decision. Our schools are exemplary and location to DFW International Airport is ideal. Lakes on both sides of us provide great recreation. Frisco is very nice but basically rooftops as far as the eye can see. You'll be competing with builders for many years, should you need to sell, and you're paying a toll, everytime you leave home. I would welcome the opportunity to meet and show you all that Flower Mound has to offer. Take a good look at both and make your decision based on the facts.

Dallas/Fort Worth has bad air, in general. The whole region. Wash your car and see how long the window stays clean. I drive all over DFW and cannot make it a single day without them getting filthy again. We kick up so much dirt and allergens into the air due to construction of roads, homes, and commercial growth. That's progress for you. I don't think a whole lot of people are taking other factors like natural gas drilling and vehicle emissions into account yet. You could be ahead of your time, or overthinking it. The jury may never be back on that one. I've never noticed a bit of difference, personally, between the air in Flower Mound or Frisco, and I work outside just about every day.

I have not heard via media any alert I own property in Coppell with gas drilling.

RECOMMEND the following:
a. Contact City direct
b. Your source of info. ask them where they obtained their info. would you forward me a copy

NOTE:
In order search for a home you need be qualified for a home loan. Lender letter is critical on how a Realtor can work on your behalf. Any sales offer you must submit with lender approval statements.

I've never heard that, but you can check out:

http://www.flower-mound.com/env_resources/env_resources_airq…

I would call the city's environmental department and speak with them to see if it is a real concern.
While there is less or no drilling in Frisco, that could change at any time. I mean who knew about
the Barnett Shale 5 years ago?
