Related Remediation Information

The TCEQ Remediation Division’s Corrective Action Program oversees the cleanup of soil and groundwater contamination from industrial and hazardous-waste sites throughout Texas, which includes petroleum refineries. The TCEQ’s Corrective Action Program sets reasonable response objectives to eliminate or reduce the concentration of chemicals of concern in environmental media. The refineries adjacent to the Hillcrest community are actively cleaning up groundwater contamination through the Corrective Action Program.

During the week of April 5, 2010, in an effort to collect additional delineation data, Flint Hills completed the installation of five permanent monitor wells on its property east of Nueces Bay Boulevard at the request of the TCEQ. The locations of these permanent monitor wells were selected by TCEQ. Wells at these permanent locations replace the temporary wells installed along the Flint Hills boundary.

Analytical data from temporary monitor wells has been incorporated into the draft hydrocarbon-plume map by the Corpus Christi Inner Harbor System Operator (CCIHSO). The final CCIHSO report and plume map will be updated in May 2010.
