Blue Ridge Landfill

The Shadow Creek Ranch MUDs (Brazoria County MUD No. 26 and Brazoria-Fort Bend County MUD No. 1) continue to monitor efforts by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to eliminate noxious odors in our community. The TCEQ has investigated Blue Ridge Landfill (BLR), and has identified that to be the cause of the odor nuisance in West Pearland. According to a recent TCEQ Notice of Enforcement, BLR is not in compliance with its permit. The MUDs notified our State Senator and Representative, new Fort Bend County Commissioner Precinct No. 1 Vincent Morales, and the Pearland City Council and Mayor of the MUDs’ desires for a swift and satisfactory resolution so residents may continue to enjoy the many benefits of living in Shadow Creek Ranch, odor free.

The City of Pearland formed an ad hoc committee called The Odor Task Force. The City maintains a webpage with documentation on BLR from the TCEQ and information on how to report resident odor complaints. Anyone interested in updates for the odor nuisance is encouraged to visit the following link:
