The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) have re-opened all waterways impacted by the Garland paint plant fire response for unrestricted use. Sampling points that span the 53 miles of impacted waterways showed results below site-specific cleanup levels over a five-day period. Sherwin-Williams also completed a five-day flushing of dechlorinated fresh water into storm drains, stream 2C4 and Duck Creek.

Throughout the cleanup efforts, more than 1.5 million gallons of water were pumped from impacted waterways filling 75 tanks. The water is being moved to state and federally-approved facilities for disposal. Two earthen dams built to help mitigate the spread of contaminants have also been deconstructed.
