130 Environmental Park Permit Application Goes to TCEQ Commission for Final Approval

May 22, 2017

LOCKHART, TX – May 22, 2017 – On May 10, 2017, the Administrative Law Judges (ALJ’s) again rejected the opponent’s arguments related to the sufficiency of the permit application and reaffirmed their prior findings of fact and conclusions of law.  The ALJ’s continue to recommend that the permit be granted by the TCEQ Commissioners.

The release of the letter by the ALJ’s effectively ends this important step in the permitting process. The 130 Environmental Park Facility Application has been deemed technically complete by the TCEQ professional staff and, after an exhaustive hearing in front of independent judges, been recommended for approval.  The final step in the permitting process is action by the TCEQ Commissioners.   It is expected that the application will be on a Commission agenda this summer.

“We are pleased that the ALJ’s did not change any of their substantive findings or conclusions despite the extensive and repetitive arguments made by the opponents in the case,”  said David Green, President of 130 Environmental Park. “We remain confident in the environmental integrity of the proposed facility and its compliance with all relevant standards and we now look forward to completing the final step in the TCEQ permitting process.”

“It is also our hope that we can continue to work with Caldwell County on entering into a Host Agreement that will benefit the Community,” Green said. “We are grateful for the efforts of the leaders of the County Commissioners Court to initiate a process to discuss the Host Agreement and change the relationship with the County.”
