Texas Soil and Water Conservation District concerned about landfills over recharge zones
from The Vindicator
Planning and constructing a landfill over any aquifer recharge zone is a big no-no according to Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDS). SWCD directors representing 216 Texas SWCDS attending their 72nd Annual Meeting October 29-31 in Bastrop approved a resolution to seek legislation that would bar the construction of a landfill over an aquifer recharge zone. "To place a landfill over an aquifer recharge zone is not only negligent and irresponsible, but it increases the risk of contamination to major regional sources of water," said Russell Bading, Chairman of the Comal-Guadalupe Soil and Water Conservation District that sponsored the resolution.
