Remains of Laredo dumping site slowly growing

The rail yard belongs to Kansas City Southern.

The tar-like substance is embedded in the ground.

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Just south of the La Azteca neighborhood in central Laredo, the remains of an old dumping site may be gradually creeping toward the Rio Grande.

The tar-like substance is embedded in the ground near a rail yard belonging to Kansas City Southern. A staff member with Laredo's Environmental Services said a previous study showed the tar was not toxic, but he says the railroad is making an effort to clean it up.

Tonight on KGNS News at Ten, reporter Christian Von Preysing gives us more on this story.
