Irving-based ExxonMobil may use fracking in its day-to-day business, but its chairman and CEO doesn't want it in his Denton County neighborhood.

Rex Tillerson has joined a lawsuit to stop construction of a water tower near his $1.3 million estate on Dove Creek Road. That water would be used in fracking, a process to drill oil and gas.

Tillerson even appeared at a Bartonville Town Council meeting to speak against it.

The lawsuit claims the project would create a noise nuisance and traffic hazards.

Bartonville is eight miles south of Denton.
