By Phil Wilson LCRA General Manager The Bay City Tribune

” . .. The proposed location of the hazardous waste landfill is within the Chicot Aquifer, which is part of the larger Gulf Coast Aquifer. The Chicot Aquifer is used as a potential source of water for drinking water, livestock and irrigation purposes. There is a real potential for a possible hydraulic connection between the shallow aquifer at the proposed landfill site and the Colorado River. “
