TCEQ fine results in extra cleanup for city residents

October 9, 2013

By Carla Noah Stutsman

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has assessed the city of Azle penalties totaling $14,000 for two violations of the city’s waste water treatment plant permit.

However, the city has agreed to perform a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) – in this case, a one-day city-wide cleanup (in addition to the two cleanups the city typically holds annually) – rather than pay the fine to the TCEQ.
