During the first week of 2018 TCEQ approved $1,197,351 in environmental fines.

Violations included the following areas:  industrial waste water discharge, air permitting, solid waste, multi-media (ie: combination of violations), PST (petroleum storage tanks), waste sludge, and one for a deep well disposal site.

This is a stark reminder of what can happen to Texas companies who fail to manage their environmental compliance regulations.
