Joint statement from Mayor Jerry Mouton & Commissioner Adrian Garcia in Response to latest developments in Ohio train derailment water disposal:

Harris County, TX — Today, Deer Park Mayor Jerry Mouton and Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia were made aware that wastewater from the Ohio train derailment fire will once again be disposed of by Texas Molecular, a Deer Park-area company. 

Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia joins Deer Park Mayor Jerry Mouton in issuing the following statement:

“We both (Harris County Precinct 2 and the City of Deer Park) have been informed that the EPA has authorized water from the Ohio train derailment to once again be sent to a local business in our area for proper handling and disposal. From discussions and review of the details, Texas Molecular has been immensely transparent and we have no more cause for concern than we would any other day. Our offices have been in regular contact with Texas Molecular since the very beginning, and based on their transparency and demonstrated expertise, as well as permitted compliance in the field of waste disposal, we are confident in their ability to dispose of the water safely. This is much like their work after the 2019 ITC fire when no one expressed concern about how that same type of firefighting water would be handled. This is what Texans do; we help our neighbors in need. While the incident happened over a thousand miles away, our friends in Ohio are neighbors nonetheless, and we stand ready to assist them in their recovery.”
