SOCORRO – A day after NewsChannel 9 aired a story about an illegal dump in the desert behind a Socorro neighborhood, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality contacted us.

The agency is interested in getting more information about the land and what is being dumped there.

As we reported, Manuel Garnica contacted us for help after he said no one was talking responsibility for cleaning up the property near his house on Trejo Road.

The property is littered with hundreds of tires, old television sets, couches and other garbage.

We'll keep you updated on what happens.
