SKULL CREEK - UPDATE
Some 31 landowners have petitioned to join a lawsuit against Inland Environmental & Remediation, the alleged polluter of Skull Creek - a tributary of the Colorado River. See details here.
Inland Environmental is currently under a court order to ensure that contamination doesn't reach the Colorado River tributary.
The order was negotiated between Inland and the Texas Attorney General's Office. The AG's office declined to provide a status report to LCRBC.
