Baytown Sun article Sunday shows the TCEQ inspection done on Royal Purple Raceway's neighbor's concrete pile concludes HPP DID NOT put dust on the raceway track. From the article: The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality concluded that HPP Materials did not violate air quality regulations in relation to a complaint that dust drifting from the facility entered the adjacent Royal Purple Raceway Park on July 5. TCEQ investigators said that in their onsite investigation Sept. 12, they observed no dust leaving the site, and found no evidence of dust impact either at the fence line or on adjacent property. HPP is voluntarily building a berm between the businesses. When completed, it will 40-feet tall with a 10-foot high landscape topper - for a total of 50 feet tall along the boundary.
