Midland County's District Attorney' Environmental Enforcement Unit is cracking down on illegal dumping in Midland County.

According to NewsWest 9, the agency was put together in October 2018 and is still getting the tools together to keep on top of the problem of illegal dumping.

The end of March is the expected time that all equipment should be in place for the department to properly enforce state laws on illegal dumping.

“We deal with things like water pollution to septic leaks to leaks from oil field waste tanks, and we’re also enforcing sections of the health code for public safety,” said Tim Telck head of the Environmental Enforcement Unit.

Telck stated the most common place for illegal dumping is along county roads, and the worst place is at the intersection of CR 1230 and CR 130.

Telck said, “We have our work cut out for us, and we’re gonna have our hands full for a while, but once we get everything up and running, and everybody trained, we’re hoping to make a big impact."
