This morning, 09/08/2021, at 2:30AM an odor incident occurred at the Texmark facility. Notification of the incident was made via the Community Awareness Emergency Response (CAER) Online system. Plant personnel acted immediately to identify the source of the odor. Once the source of the odor was identified, measures were taken to eliminate it. By 8:25AM, third-party air monitoring indicated no more odor at Texmark’s fence line and an ALL CLEAR was issued.
However, due to meteorological conditions, the odor lingered and the lack of wind made it noticeable to the community outside of the immediate area. Nearby industrial neighbors sought medical evaluation, however no Texmark employees reported symptoms of possible exposure. We regret any negative impact these residual odors may have had and any inconvenience this may have caused.
