Blue Ridge Landfill

The Shadow Creek Ranch MUDs received over 100 emails from residents who are concerned about the Blue Ridge Landfill.  These emails were forwarded to the TCEQ Regional and Executive Director as well as city, county, and state representatives. In addition, the SCR MUDs have taken the following actions:

  • SCR MUD Directors (one from each Board), along with City of Pearland representatives and State Representative Ed Thompson, attended a TCEQ hearing in Austin, Texas on July 7, 2017, regarding approval of the TCEQ Agreed Order Docket No. 2016-1923-AIR-E issued to the Landfill and to speak on behalf of residents’ desire for a swift and satisfactory resolution to the Landfill odor nuisance.
  • SCR MUDs engaged special counsel to file comments to the Agreed Order and to monitor TCEQ enforcement of the Order
  • SCR MUDs continue to advocate resident attendance at Pearland City Council meetings via the SCR MUD website and notices published in the monthly newsletters: The Connection and the Shadow Creek Ranch Area Newsletter
  • At the request of State Representative Ed Thompson, a BFB MUD 1 Director, Heather Zayas, spoke on behalf of SCR residents to Texas lawmakers at a House Environmental Subcommittee hearing on April 24, 2018 regarding the effects of living near the Blue Ridge Landfill.
