Bryan to Again Push for CS to Begin Major Methane Project

Bryan's city council will again call for a major landfill project that it says College Station is stalling on.

A Bryan Texas Utilities bid to convert methane from the Rock Prairie landfill into power was accepted months ago, but Bryan leaders say College Station is taking no action on the contract.

Bryan leaders call the project one of the biggest green initiatives ever in the region, and say it would be akin to planting 2,200 trees a year for 15 years. The project would also save $40,000 a month.

Previously, College Station leaders said they are continuing discussions with Bryan to put together a contract both sides can agree on.

The two sides have been embroiled in legal action over the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency, the landfill operation the two cities co-own. Bryan sued College Station, saying they were not being allowed in on key decisions concerning the agency.

The two sides have come to some agreements, but talks continue to resolve the matter fully.

Recently, both cities signed off on a construction contract which will go to create the Twin Oaks landfill in Grimes County. The Rock Prairie landfill will be full in about a year-and-a-half.
