PAI Clients’ Work in the Brazos River Basin Featured in Texas Observer Story

William Phillips Environmental News, Wastewater, Water Pollution

Perales, Allmon & Ice clients, Granbury Fresh and Victoria Calder, are featured in a recent Texas Observer article by Kathryn Jones. Granbury Fresh and Dr. Calder, the organization’s President, have opposed a new wastewater treatment facility to be built by the City of Granbury since the City first applied for its discharge permit in 2019. TCEQ Commissioners voted to issue the permit in October of 2022, and our firm, along with Michael J. Booth of Booth & Associates, P.C., has since filed a lawsuit in Travis County District Court against TCEQ for the errors it made in processing the City’s permit application.

Granbury Fresh is also one of the 22 organizations represented by Perales, Allmon & Ice, Earthjustice, and Environmental Integrity Project, who, in September of 2021, petitioned the EPA to fix Texas’ water quality permitting program, or take over the program if Texas does not fix the problems itself. The Texas Observer article also mentions this effort.
