They call it landfarming and industry is on the honor system to test the waste for toxicity and radioactivity. The permitting process is manipulated putting the public and our vital natural resources at risk.
Yesterday I took some pictures of “landfarming” in Denton County. This one is between Ponder and DISH.
This one is across the street from UNT’s Athletic Facility.
Arkansas ended up with contaminated water from landfarming the way we do it in Texas. They don’t do it that way anymore but, of course, we still do.
