FLORESVILLE -- County Attorney Russell Wilson filed a protest, with the Texas Railroad Commission, against a permit application, for a Commercial Oil and Gas Separation Facility, in Wilson County. The permit application, by HJ Integrity Investments, of Nacodoches, seeks permission to build a “washout pit,” where wastes would be removed from oil field trucks, on U.S. Highway 97, six miles West of Stockdale. The wastes would be stored at the site, then trucked somewhere else for final disposal.

The protest points out more than a dozen required items, from plats, to storm water runoff plans, to plans for inspection and monitoring, that were not included in the application. The Texas Railroad Commission has already received other protests regarding the application, and may hold a public hearing, in Wilson County, about it.

“The surge in drilling because of the Eagle Ford Shale means a lot of dirty oil field trucks, and they have to be cleaned out somewhere.” Wilson said. “But the public is entitled to know that the cleaning facility is designed and run in a way that keeps oil field waste in it, and doesn’t let it escape.”
