AFFIDAVIT OF KEVIN IDLL

Before me, the undersigned Notary Public, appeared Kevin Hill, who first being duly sworn

according to the law, said:

"My name is Kevin Hill. I am over the age of 18 and am of sound mind and capable of

making this affidavit. I have personal knowledge of the statements within this affidavit and such

statements are true and correct and they are made under penalty of perjury.

I have worked for the City of Dallas for almost 3 years. Currently, I am an Environmental

Specialist Ill for the Dallas Water Utilities. My duties include sampling and monitoring creeks,

streams, and waterways within the Dallas city limits.

1. I received a service request on the morning of December 13, 2018 classified as

"Water Pollution Urgent" at 9505 South Central Expressway, Dallas, Texas (the "Property").

2. When I arrived at the Property, I noticed a sign that advertised shingle recycling.

3. At the Property, I identified multiple shingle sheets in and around the creek; upon

further investigation, I identified approximately a 15-20-foot tall, 300-foot long wall of ground-up

shingle asphalt stretching approximately 30-40 feet across the entire length of the creek. The result

EXHIBIT A
AFFIDAVIT OF KEVIN HILL - PAGE I
of the amount and placement of the waste was near complete blockage of the creek and discharge

of industrial and asphalt base material into the stormwater drainage system and storm sewer.

4. I spoke with the on-site supervisor, Larry Thibodaux, who claimed the business

operated as recycler that purchased shingles, ground them up, and sold as asphalt. When prompted,

he admitted he did not have an Industrial Stormwater Permit. I informed him that his current

business practice was a violation of Section 19-118.2 for discharging or permitting the discharge

of any substance or material that will damage, block, or clog the storm water drainage system into

the storm water drainage system. During our conversation, I witnessed employees moving the

ground-up shingle debris with a front-end loader toward the debris wall in the creek. Due to the

conversation, the supervisor halted the front-end loader, thus leaving the debris where the loader

stopped.

5. I then performed a basic field test on the water downstream of the debris that

indicated elevated measurements of phosphorous, iron hardness, copper, nitrite, total suspended

solids, and turbidity, which indicates clarity of water. These elevated levels indicate drainage of

metals and chemicals, likely from the debris in the creek at the Property.

6. The code provisions that are being violated at the Property relate to the preservation

of public health or other property and persons other than Blue Star and property other than Blue

Star's will continue to suffer from adverse impacts and risk substantial danger of further damage.

(i) no loss of valley storage is permitted along a stream with a drainage area of three square
miles or more;

(ii) valley storage losses along streams with a drainage area between 130 acres and three
square miles may not exceed 15 percent, as calculated on a site by site basis; and
(iii) valley storage losses along streams with a drainage area ofless than 130 acres is not
limited.

(B) Hydrologic computations may be performed to evaluate basin-wide valley storage loss
impacts on the design flood discharge. If the computations demonstrate that valley storage losses do

not result in increases in the design flood discharge at any point downstream of the project, valley
storage losses are permitted even though they exceed the limits provided in Subparagraph (A).
(5) An environmental impact study and a complete stream rehabilitation program must be
approved before relocation or alteration of the natural channel or alteration of an environmentally
significant area. The net environmental impacts of the proposal may not be negative. The
environmental impact study must contain the following items.
(A) A description of the existing conditions of the site, adjacent properties, upstream and
downstream creek sections for approximately 1,000 feet (unless conditions require additional
information in the opinion of the director of water utilities), and creek and overbank areas. The
description of these conditions must include:
(i) the characterization of creek features such as bed quality and material, pool-riffle
sequences, natural ground water, springs, seeps, magnitude and continuity of flow, water quality
(including biological oxygen demand, dissolved oxygen, and nutrient loadings), bank quality and
material, vegetative cover and patterns, bank erosion, topographic relief, disturbances to the natural
character of the creek, animal arid aquatic life, and the extent and character of wetland areas; and
(ii) soil types and land uses of the site and surrounding area.
(B) A description of the proposed project. This description must include:
(i) the intended ultimate use of the site, or if that is not known, a description of the interim
site plan, including construction access;
(ii) reasons why the creek or flood plain alteration is necessary; and
(iii) a site plan showing the flood plain and construction access necessary to perform the
work.
(C) A description of at least three possible ways of handling the creek and flood plain,
including:
(i) an alternative that assumes the creek and flood plain are not changed;

(ii) the applicant's proposed action; and


(iii) alternatives proposed by the director of water utilities.
(D) An identification of the impacts created by each alternative, describing in detail all of the
positive and negative impacts upon the existing conditions described in Subparagraph (A), that
would be created by each alternative.
(E) A recommended course of action based upon evaluation of the alternatives.
(F) Proposed strategies to mitigate adverse impacts. Examples of strategies include tree wells,
temporary construction and permanent erosion and sedimentation controls, vegetative buffers, and
replacement planting.
(6) The toe of any fill slope must parallel the natural channel to prevent an unbalanced stream
flow in the altered FP area.
(7) To insure maximum accessibility to the FP area for maintenance and other purposes and to
lessen the probability of slope erosion during periods of high water, maximum slopes of the filled

area may not exceed four to one for 50 percent of the length of the fill and six to one for the
remaining length of the fill. The slope of any excavated area may not exceed four to one unless the
excavation is in rock. Vertical walls, terracing, and other slope treatments may be used provided no
unbalancing of stream flow results and the slope treatment is approved as a part of a landscaping plan
for the property.
(8) The elevation of excavated areas in the FP area may not be lower than one-third of the depth
of the natural channel, as measured from the adjacent bank, except for excavation of lakes.
Excavation must be at least 50 feet from the bank of the natural channel, except as necessary to
provide proper drainage. The excavated area may not exceed 25 percent of the total area of the tract's
unfilled flood plain.
(9) A landscape and erosion control plan must be submitted and approved. Landscaping must
incorporate natural materials (such as earth, stone, and wood) on cut and filled slopes when possible.
The definitions of Section 5 lA-10.101 of this chapter apply to this subsection. Except as otherwise
provided, the preservation and mitigation requirements contained in the tree preservation regulations,
Division 51A-10.130 of the Dallas Development Code, apply. Each landscape and erosion control
plan must comply with the following criteria:
(A) The size, type, and location of all trees within the existing flood plain that are six-inch
caliper and larger must be shown. The plans must indicate which of the trees are to be preserved and
which will be lost due to development activities in the flood plain.
(B) Trees must be protected if they are more than six-inches in caliper and located in sloped
areas of flood plain fill with a depth of four feet or less. If trees are protected by tree wells, the wells
must be at or beyond the drip line of the tree and must provide positive drainage. A well may not
exceed four feet in depth unless designed and certified by a registered landscape architect. Tree wells
are required if either of the following conditions occur at the base of a tree to be protected:

(i) a fill of greater than six inches; or

(ii) a cut greater than six inches.


(C) The size, type, and location of all proposed replacement trees to mitigate the loss of
existing trees must be shown. The tree types must be selected in accordance with the provisions of
Section 51A-10.134 and must be approved by the city arborist as suitable for use under local climate
and soil conditions.
(D) Where a swale is proposed, tree replacement is required for the loss of existing trees with
a six-inch caliper or greater located within the proposed swale. The applicant must indicate
replacement of either 35 percent of the number of trees displaced, or the minimum number of trees
necessary to provide a spacing equivalent to 50 feet on center, whichever is less. At least 50 percent
of the replacement trees must have a caliper of at least six inches. The remainder of the trees must
have a caliper of at least three inches.
(E) The specific plant materials proposed to protect fill and excavated slopes must be
indicated. Plant materials must be suitable for use under local climate and soil conditions. In
general, hydroseeding or sodding Bermuda grass is acceptable during the summer months (May 1st
to August 30th). Winter rye or fescue grass may be planted during times other than the summer
months as a temporary measure until such time as the permanent planting can be accomplished.

(F) The proposed methods of erosion and sedimentation control, such as hay bales and
sedimentation basins, to be used during construction must be shown in detail.

EXHIBIT C 10/12
3/20/2019 ARTICLE V. FLOOD PLAIN AND ESCARPMENT ZONE REGULATIONS. xx

(G) The fill case applicant, current owners, and subsequent owners must maintain and assure
the survival of all planted material until the property is developed and a permanent maintenance plan
of record is established. Maintenance responsibility must be reflected in the submitted plans or
supporting documents.
( 10) Any alteration of the FP area necessary to obtain a removal of an FP prefix may not cause
any additional expense in any current or projected public improvements.
(i) .Special criteria for the TrinitY. and the Elm Fork. If the FP area is in the flood plain of the
Trinity River, Elm Fork of Trinity River, West Fork of the Trinity River, Five Mile Creek -
confluence to Bonnie View Road, White Rock Creek - confluence to Scyene Road, or the regulatory
floodways established by FEMA, the following requirements must be met:
(A) Encroachment into the floodway is prohibited unless FEMA issues a conditional Letter of
Map Revision,
(B) Fill elevations and first floor elevations in flood plain areas located along the Elm Fork,
West Fork or main stem of the Trinity River that would be protected from inundation by the 100-year
or greater flood by a federally authorized flood control project must be constructed at a minimum
elevation of one foot above the design flood. The parking requirements in Section 51A-5.104(b)(4)
do not apply.
G) Term of permit validitY. and extension procedures.
(A) Permits issued after October 11,~. A fill permit is valid for a five-year time period
from the date of issuance. The fill permit automatically terminates if the filling operations have not
been completed within the five-year time period. The director of water utilities may grant a one-time
extension of a fill permit for an additional three-year time period upon receipt of a written request
made at least 30 days before the expiration of the original permit. The applicant for permit extension
must demonstrate that the project fully complies with the flood plain regulations that were in effect at
the time that the original permit was approved.
(B) Permits issued before October 11, 1996. Fill permits issued before October 11, 1996, shall
expire on December 31, 2001. The director of water utilities shall notify owners of fill permits
governed by this paragraph that:
(i) filling must be completed no later than December 31, 2001; and
(ii) a one-time extension of the permit for an additional three-year time period may be
granted by the director of water utilities upon receipt of a written request made at least 30 days before
the expiration date of the original permit. The applicant for permit extension must demonstrate that
the project fully complies with the flood plain regulations that were in effect at the time that the
original permit was approved.
(C) New permit required upon expiration. When a fill permit terminates, the applicant must
apply for a new permit before filling the property. The new application must comply with the flood
plain regulations that are in effect at the time that the request is considered by the city council.
(D) Presumption of completion. Filling operations are deemed completed when the applicant
submits:
(i) a certification to the director of water utilities that proper fill elevations have been
achieved and the specifications of the approved application have been followed; and

I have worked for the City of Dallas ("City") for 11 years. I am qualified as a Senior

Program Manager, and I am employed in that position by the Dallas Office of Environmental

Quality and Sustainability. My duties include managing air compliance, air monitoring, and

environmental due diligence teams. My department is tasked with inspecting properties for

violations of Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)'s air quality regulations.

1. On or about December 20, 2018, I and my team conducted an inspection of Blue Star

Recycling at 9505 and 9527 South Central Expressway, Dallas, Dallas County, Texas. Our

2. I and my team personally viewed the property and observed large amounts of roofing

shingles and parts of roofing shingles stored in large, uncovered mounds on the property.

We visually, with the naked eye, observed what appeared to be glass fiber particles in the

air. After the inspection, we experienced an itching sensation as a result 0f the fibers in

the air.

My team has received several complaints from different individuals regarding poor air

quality at properties surrounding Blue Star’s facilities. In particular, citizens have

complained of poor air quality resulting in black dust permeating the air they were

breathing. Ihave also been made aware of other complaints by neighbors regarding air

quality and concern of illness.

Our investigation of this property is ongoing.

COUNTY OF DALLAS )

Before me, the undersigned Notary Public, appeared Ralph Hayes, who first being duly

sworn according to the law, said:

"My name is Ralph Hayes. I am over the age of 18 and am of sound mind and capable of

making this affidavit. I have personal knowledge of the statements within this affidavit, such

statements are true and correct, and they are made under penalty of perjury.

I have worked for the City of Dallas ("City") for approximately 3 years. I am a Code

Inspector with the City of Dallas, and I am employed in that position by the Department of Code

Compliance. My duties include inspections of properties to determine compliance with the laws

of the City of Dallas.

1. On or about December 28, 2018, I began to conduct an investigation related to the business

operations of Blue Star Recycling at 9505 and 9527 South Central Expressway, Dallas,

Dallas County, Texas. My investigation included a site visit and research of the applicable

zoning laws and other City codes pertinent to the operation. I also visited the location on

three additional visits.

2. At the time of my inspections, I personally viewed a trailer repair shop and two residential

structures on the smaller parcel located at 9505 South Central Expressway. I spoke to the

occupants living on the property and they informed me that they were employees of Blue

Star Recycling and that they lived on the property. I also observed large amounts of ground

shingle material, being stored on site.

3. There is no Certificate of Occupancy issued by the City of Dallas for any of the above uses.

These constitute illegal land uses.

4. Further, at the time of my inspections, I viewed the business operations of Blue Star

Recycling on the larger parcel at 9527 South Central Expressway and 9505 South Central

Expressway. They were storing large amounts of ground shingles and pallets, as well as

equipment necessary to conduct shingle grinding operations.

5. It is within my job duties and I frequently conduct research to determine land uses on

properties. I have searched the City's records and databases and found that Blue Star

Recycling had a Certificate of Occupancy for an industrial (outside) use that was previously

issued, but has been revoked by the Building Official. Accordingly, any use on the property

is illegal and must immediately cease."
