A couple residents of Park Place Acre Villa are interested in finding out what the point was of this fleet of Boone Exploration seismic vibrator vehicles rolling up Detroit St. and Findlay St. this week — and areas further east of the Gulfgate-area neighborhood earlier. After a few phone calls, a representative of council member Robert Gallegos reportedly showed up to talk to the crew from Premier Geophysical Services, which has been conducting seismic testing in the area.
For their tests, workers were attaching monitoring equipment to the corners of house foundations. “[There’s] no clear answer what all this is for,” writes one Swamplot tipster, who claims to have heard 2 separate explanations — that crews are looking for oil or minerals.
