There was standing room only Thursday evening at the Yorktown Library as concerned citizens of Yorktown and Nordheim, as well as neighboring residents of Kenedy and Karnes City, gathered in a town meeting to hear health concerns on oilfield waste disposals. They were also there to hear information on attempts to deny Pyote Reclamation Systems, L.L.C. proposed reclamation facilities near Nordheim and Yorktown.
Pyote Reclamation Systems, L.L.C. filed a permit application with the Railroad Commission of Texas to construct a reclamation facility on 204 acres on Hohn Road, less than a half mile from Nordheim, and another facility of 574 acres, 3.5 miles north east from Nordheim and approximately 4 miles from Yorktown, on Eckhardt Road.
Members of Concerned About Pollution (CAP) invited Wilma Subra of New Iberia, La., chemist and consultant on toxic chemicals and oilfield waste materials, to make a presentation on waste disposal operations and their impact on air, water, soil and human health for those living near them.
