The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ) are overseeing the pumping and remediation of impacted waterways in the area around the Sherwin-Williams Shiloh Road Plant fire response in Garland, TX.
Analysis of water sampling data shows that contaminant concentrations and detections have decreased throughout the week. It has been determined it is safe to release the waters being held by the retention dam in Duck Creek to restore the water flow to natural levels. The water is safe for agricultural use again. The situation will continue to be monitored and samples taken from affected waterways to minimize impacts to human health and the environment. The public is advised not to fish or have contact with the impacted creek waters while monitoring continues. The continued sampling is located at 10 fixed locations in Duck Creek spanning 53 river miles into the Trinity River. These sampling locations are itemized with interactive updates on the EPA Response website (linked below).
