DNR knows the aquifer is contaminated by Texas Brine

They say so in their new complaint.

In that missive DNR gave to Texas Brine yesterday – they put out an add-on to their earlier State of Emergency Declaration. It’s called ‘third amendment’ and is all directed at Texas Brine.

 Other juicy bits include these factoids:

P.2, part 8  –  The aquifer is contaminated by natural gas and is threatened by CUDE (!!!)

P.4, part 4  –  They FEAR THE CAVERN WILL COMPLETLY COLLAPSE (!!!)

P.4, parts 7 & 8 – They ORDER Texas Brine to produce a plan for water testing at the cavern and give it to DNR by  OCT. 19.
    They ORDER Texas Brine to get a groundwater vent well going where 10 feet of gas collected by OCT. 25.

ooo, ooo! Will they do it? Bets, anyone? See sidebar for our ULTIMATUM COUNTDOWN!

Somehow missed that stuff in this week’s community meeting!
