Blue Ridge Landfill

The Shadow Creek Ranch MUDs sent a Board Director from each MUD to Austin on July 7 to speak to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (“TCEQ”) during a hearing to approve an Order issued to Blue Ridge Landfill (BRL) to reduce odors coming from the landfill. MUD Directors were joined by City of Pearland representatives and State Representative Ed Thompson to speak on behalf of residents’ desire for a swift and satisfactory resolution. The City also has filed a lawsuit against BRL.
