TXU Visits Toxic Dumpsite Company Is Accused Of Creating

The toxic dumpsite in Troup was paid a visit by representatives of TXU.

That's because Smith County constables say TXU is one of four electric companies responsible for the illegal dumpsite we told you about on Friday.

Constable Danny Smith says TXU searched the three-acre site Monday, which was filled with old wires, insulators and old meters.

Smith also says test results reveal lead levels 200 times above normal.

Right now, TXU denies responsibility but says it will cooperate with the investigation.
