TCEQ Investigates Dam Failure

Investigators with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality were out at Rhine's Lake Friday, inspecting a dam that broke apart Tuesday.  Since then, the lake, known to locals as Pure Oil Lake, has been flowing downstream along the Neches River, making it's way to Lake Palestine.  The TCEQ would not comment on what it found today.  Investigators say it may take up to two weeks before they know exactly what caused the dam to break.
