Texas sinkholes

Strange Sounds
Over 4,000 square miles in Texas are sinking in giant holes where new lakes are forming

It began with sinkholes. Two of them, gaping mouths to nowhere opening up as if to swallow the town of Wink, Texas. As they expanded, there were fears they might collide, morphing into one giant void and swallowing up the city. Now, an unprecedented study reveals Wink and its vast sinkholes are just a tiny part of a much bigger problem. . . .

Gulf Coast drinking water may be impacted by this Texas toxic waste plan

Altair hazardous waste landfill should be closely reviewed

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.
