Several folks have contacted their City elected official or my office regarding the chemical spill on Sul Ross Avenue (just west of Phelps Ave). The chemical’s formal name is AE-P Primer MSDS and is a common substance the City and/or it’s vendors utilize on street repair and maintenance.
First and foremost, I would like to apologize to our citizens for the concern and worry this has caused. J Horry (our new ACM over Outside Services) and myself are working back with TCEQ and the vendor responsible for the spill on clean-up. We anticipate starting the remediation later today. TCEQ has outlined a couple of expectations with J and he will be providing the oversight to the clean-up and subsequent re-vegetation.
Please feel free to reach out to myself or J with any concerns (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com).
