The possibility of using 402 acres west of Chappell Hill in Washington County to turn bio-solid waste into fertilizer has some residents concerned, worried and angry.
To answer questions from property owners, officials with the company, K-3BMI along with representatives from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality attend a public meeting Tuesday night.
A K-3BMI spokesperson explained how a thin layer of non-toxic and non-explosive bio-waste would eventually be transformed into fertilizer.
Despite the safety assurances made by the company, some Chappell Hill property owners and farmers expressed concerns that run-off from the fertilizer making process could contaminate fields and harm crops.
An attorney for TCEQ says before any decision is made, a public hearing will be scheduled.
