On July 6, 2016 Pintail Landfill initiated a new landfill permitting process on a portion of the 723-acre tract it owns in Northwest Waller County off Highway 6 by submitting parts I and II of the state-approved landfill application with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
The site for this new landfill application is on a portion of the overall tract for which a prior landfill application was submitted. The prior application was deemed technically complete and a draft permit was prepared by the TCEQ. During the contested case hearing process, Pintail representatives requested that the application be remanded to TCEQ for further evaluation based on changes in the groundwater elevations at the site. The administrative law judges agreed with Pintail’s representatives and remanded the application to TCEQ, who then returned the application to Pintail in October 2015.
Since that time, Pintail and its project team have continued to monitor the site and evaluate all options. This new landfill application is the result of such study.
Pintail is confident that the new application meets all applicable design and location standards. Additional information about the project and application review process will be forthcoming after TCEQ responds to the application.
