Project Description

The Railroad Commission of Texas and the National Park Service will plug 11 abandoned wells located at Padre Island National Seashore. While proper plugging of wells and reclamation of well sites involve relatively small land areas, they represent significant sources of petroleum pollution that can impact groundwater, springs and seeps, and surface water.
