"I'm disappointed when well-educated, responsible parties that know what they're dealing with, fail to take the actions that are required to protect the environment, because it's preventable, and even if it is not preventable, it is curable."
Tim Ruggiero says
I'm even more disappointed in the fact that the TRRC has not been made well aware of the problems, they did absolutly nothing but wink and nod to their Industry friends when it came time for accountability and clean up.
Sounds a lot like how the TCEQ behaves. Are these two agencies competing to see who can be more corrupt?
Aside from my allegations of corruption from the agencies, the lack of response, follow up and enforcement by both of these agencies is very telling about how they really operate.
The time has come for the EPA to fimrly take control of the TRRC and the TCEQ. Step one is to conduct a federal level investigation and imprison those officals who are corrupt. Step two is to dismantle both the TRRC and TCEQ.
Right on Tim above. The RRC is the most ruthless and unprotective of both agencies. The WCEQ is totally worthless, but more polite about it. I agree, both should be sold off at public auction–save tax money.
The big question is how many other towns like Beeville are out there? You can bet this is happening in other areas of Texas. This is scary.
