TCEQ new website admits that ASARCO contamination has reached the Rio Grande

The people from the TCEQ who posted this data deserve our support and thanks in my opinion. The bad side is that they haven't shown any data on the illegal/secret toxic waste that the EPA let us know ASARCO incinerated for years; and, they waited until the Bankruptcy is about finished.

"Surface Water Impacted by Contaminated Groundwater: Based on surface water analytical data, the contaminated groundwater appears to have reached the Rio Grande."

Fig. 2 from that website shows the area of groundwater plume.

The Canal Street water treatment plant is about 2 miles downstream from this point.
