Rio Hondo citizens meet over proposed waste facility plans

More than 100 people crammed into Rio Hondo's City Commission Room on Thursday, Jan. 18.

The public meeting was held in regards to a proposed liquid waste facility on the Arroyo Colorado. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality hosted the meeting.

A company wants to partner with the city's waste water department to build a facility in the area. Opponents fear wildlife will be impacted by the waste it dumps in the water.

There are still more steps before a decision is in on whether the project gets the green light.
