On the eve of a huge vote by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, there is potentially dangerous new information about the proposed Green Group Dump in Caldwell County.
Dolcefino Consulting has learned Green Group never secured the water they need to control dust and fight fire that plague landfills.
Worse, the company may have misled the State Office of Administration Hearings on their capacity to fully protect health and safety.
Green Group has paraded around a letter from the privately owned, Polonia Water Supply, saying they would accept the dump as a customer if they met their rules. Green Group says it needs up to 300,000 gallons of water a month, in part to help control dust.
Unfortunately, the company never formally applied to be a customer. Polonia Water President tells Dolcefino Consulting they might not approve letting their water be used for dust control.
Worse, their water can’t be used to fight fires. There are 8,300 landfill fires a year, and some have burned for years.
“It will be shocking for the TCEQ to approve a landfill without assurance there will be a water supply to fight fires and control dust” says Wayne Dolcefino, President of Dolcefino Consulting.
“This is a company with a history, and Texas should say, No Thank You.”
Dolcefino Consulting will be on hand Wednesday morning, September 6 when the TCEQ meets, you can watch the permit hearing live at:http://www.texasadmin.com/tx/tceq/agenda_meeting/20170906/ or at Facebook Livehttps://www.facebook.com/DolcefinoCommunicationsLlc/
