A TCEQ investigation found nothing wrong with construction practices at the Preserve at Woodridge despite photographic evidence.
On April 23, 2022, I received multiple complaints about silty stormwater in Bens Branch. I confirmed discoloration in the water and followed it upstream. The source appeared to be the Preserve at Woodridge on Woodridge Parkway opposite the new St. Martha church. Photos confirmed that contractors were:
- Pumping the contents of their silty detention pond into a tributary of Bens Branch.
- Piling dirt on neighboring property.
- Not using silt fence along their southern boundary.
- Not posting permits.
Today, August 3, 2022, I received this letter confirming they found nothing wrong.
Caught on Camera
My complaint was based on these photos (among others).
I guess there was nothing wrong. Message received, TCEQ.
