Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Approves Soil Sampling Plan for Englewood Yard Expansion

In May, contractors for Union Pacific notified the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) of their plans to conduct soil sampling at the Houston Wood Preserving Works Facility as part of the Phase 3 expansion project at the Englewood Intermodal Yard. This proposed soil sampling plan includes drilling holes to test for contaminants. The TCEQ responded with comments and approved the plan. Soil sampling activities began immediately upon receiving TCEQ approval and will be conducted through the end of June.

The Englewood Intermodal Yard expansion will improve operational capacity and support more efficient train movements through one of the busiest crossroads in the country, growing the critical Houston and Gulf Coast market.
