This CLOSED OR ABANDONED MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE LANDFILL INVENTORY was prepared from information furnished by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality ("TCEQ"), permitting records on file with TCEQ and the Texas Department of Health, and from aerial photography and GIS data developed by H-GAC. The county map, individual site maps, and legal descriptions of the closed or abandoned municipal solid waste landfills represent TCEQ's and H-GAC's best judgment about the landfills' location, but neither TCEQ nor H-GAC warrants the accuracy, timeliness, or completeness of the maps or legal descriptions. Moreover, because TCEQ and H-GAC have inventoried only known municipal solid waste landfills, TCEQ and H-GAC make no representation about whether a specific tract of land may overlie an unknown municipal or other solid waste landfill.
