EPA investigates TCEQ lack of response in Gardendale

Posted: February 22, 2013 in Uncategorized

After 2 years of complaining about noxious gas in Gardendale, the EPA finally ‘got wind’ of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s lack of enforcement. Now, the federal agency is looking into why Windsor/Hurt and Berry Petroleum either have not or will not control the fugitive emissions allowed to escape onto resident’s properties.

If these companies insist on developing oil and gas near neighborhoods, then these companies will face regulatory and civil action for their negligent acts…it’s their choice.
