Scientists Submit Plan To Fix Leak

East Texas scientists are one step closer to getting rid of a leak at the Angelina County landfill.

Hydrogeologists recently submitted a plan to the state to stop landfill gases from coming in contact with groundwater at the site.  It'll be a month or two before they get word on whether the state approved that proposal.  After that, it'll take another two or three months to start fixing the problem.

The project includes building a trench to intercept landfill gas before it reaches the landfill.
