Harris County Files Lawsuit Against Waste Pit Polluters!

Fishing the River...The citizens of Harris County no longer feel secure while swimming in the San Jacinto River. The citizens of Harris County no longer trust that the fish they catch from the San Jacinto River are safe to eat.  The citizens of Harris County can no longer enjoy camping, picnicking or eating fish or blue crabs in the San Jacinto River free from fear. The citizens of Harris County have lost the ability to enjoy the San Jacinto River and Harris County and its residents have been severely impacted as a result...

That is the language that Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan uses in his petition which seeks penalties of up to $25,000 a day dating to 1965 from defendants McGinnis Industrial Maintenance Co.,  Waste Management Inc., Waste Management of Texas and International Paper Co.

Residents take the San Jacinto Waste Pits matter into their own hands

Deadly CatchGiven the lack of appropriate signage warning about the presence of dioxins in the waters of the San Jacinto River, community members gathered last Saturday, at River Terrace Park in Channelview, to put up homemade signs in order to inform visitors about the risks of consuming fish caught on those waters.

This park, located just south of I-10 and Baylor, has become a very popular fishing spot that not only attracts local residents but also visitors from all the Houston metroplex area.
