Texas Commission on Environmental Quality update

Recommended Posts

From Cohen enewsletter

Council Member Cohen and Council Member Costello received an update from Director Earl Lott of the Waste Permits Division with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regarding the Southwaste grease recycling facility in District C. The Council Members have advocated that, given the history of odor complaints the City of Houston has received regarding this facility, Southwaste should be required to eliminate all nuisance odors for a minimum of six months before being granted an increase in processing capacity. In a victory for the neighborhood, Mr. Lott confirmed that “the odor control equipment will be in operation for at least six months prior to any resolution of the permit amendment application. This should provide ample opportunities to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the odor control equipment.”
