BROWNSVILLE – The city of Brownsville is taking measures to make sure residents who live near underground fuel tanks are safe.

A resident who lives near a fueling station tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS  the smell still penetrates even with the windows and doors closed.

Brownsville Deputy City Manager Pete Gonzalez says the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality inspected the area last year and found violations. 

“We needed a professional to come in and do the test that was not being done in the past, but now we're doing it,” he says.

KRGV’s Carolina Cruz explains what TCEQ discovered when they reviewed the progress being made.
