LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - NewsChannel 11 has information on a company that has been investigated several times over the years for environmental violations. Sunday night we learned from public records that Scrub-A-Dubb is again accused of even more environment violations.   The city of Lubbock says the barrel company has a laundry list of violations over the last 25-years.   A series of pictures were taken last week by city of Lubbock officials.  

The issue comes up for city council discussion this coming Thursday as part of proposed zoning change near East Kemper Street and North Ash Avenue.  The city says the company had toxic spills as recently as January and May of 2007.   City officials say that the company is on the edge of Yellow House Canyon so any toxic material spilled could end up in the Canyon Lake System.

City of Lubbock records say:  "The case was returned to the [TCEQ] Enforcement Division who will provide the Scrub-a-Dubb owner one more opportunity to comply with TCEQ regulations and to pay existing fines. If Scrub-A-Dubb owner does not comply, the case will be referred to the Office of Attorney General."

We called the only number listed for Scrub-A-Dubb earlier Sunday, but there was no answer.   NewsChannel 11 is trying to get reaction from Scrubb-A-Dubb and hear their side of the story and will bring you the latest information as it becomes available.
