RGISC's Comments to TCEQ about the Pescadito Environmental Resource Center (Proposed Landfill)
Last night (May 3), the RGISC Board of Directors met for 3.5 hours on the proposed municipal and industrial waste landfill.
The Board heard from both sides and asked questions from both sides.
Afterward, the Board voted to stand by its letter and comments to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and not support this project due to numerous environmental and public health concerns.
