2 TV Stations Settle In The Blue Ridge Landfill Expansion Case Leaving Thousands of Homeowners To Press On Alone! --click here for full story--

Two Of Three TV Stations End Their Dispute Over Landfill Expansion
by Bob Dunn

Two of three Houston TV stations have dropped their bid to prevent Blue Ridge Landfill from expanding and piling refuse 170 feet high.

KTRK Channel 13, KHOU Channel 11 and KRIV Channel 26 all contended that the proposed expansion would allow garbage to be stacked so high that it could block Doppler radar signals and possibly prevent hurricane detection.

But sources said Wednesday that ABC affiliate KTRK-TV and CBS affiliate KHOU-TV have reached a negotiated settlement with the landfill's owner. The TV stations' attorneys couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.

Fox affiliate KRIV-TV apparently is not part of the agreement.

About a year and a half ago, the television stations joined an already large group of opponents to the proposed landfill expansion, including the City of Pearland, Brazoria County and a group of citizens called CABRLE - the Coalition Against Blue Ridge Landfill Expansion. . . follow the link above for the full story!
