Officials monitor Rio Grande River water supply after warning of Pemex release

A “bad” substance is believed to be snaking its way into the Rio Grande.

The unidentified substance, which already could have impacted Falcon Reservoir, was released from a facility in Mexico owned by the country’s oil conglomerate Pemex, and federal and state agencies are advising water rights holders along the Rio Grande, the Valley Morning Star learned.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) issued a precautionary notification to Falcon Reservoir facilities Tuesday, and to additional water users downstream Wednesday after being advised by the International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC) that its counterpart in Mexico, the Comisión Internacional de Límites y Agua (CILA), had alerted to this.

“They do not know what the material is or the quantity released, but it went into the Rio Salado and is headed toward the Rio Grande near Zapata,” TCEQ’s precautionary notification states.
