There was standing room only Thursday evening at the Yorktown Library as concerned citizens of Yorktown and Nordheim, as well as neighboring residents of Kenedy and Karnes City, gathered in a town meeting to hear health concerns on oilfield waste disposals.

Pyote Reclamation Systems, L.L.C. filed a permit application with the Railroad Commission of Texas to construct a reclamation facility on 204 acres on Hohn Road, less than a half mile from Nordheim, and another facility of 574 acres, 3.5 miles north east from Nordheim and approximately 4 miles from Yorktown, on Eckhardt Road.
