Texas’ environmental agency is investigating the Boring Company.

The Austin Business Journal reports that Boring’s site in Bastrop has been hit with three complaints about wastewater and concrete production.

What we know:

  • The severity of possible issues at the Boring site is unclear, but the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has launched two investigations.
  • TCEQ aims to complete the investigations within 60 days, the agency told the Austin Business Journal.
  • If environmental violations are found, TCEQ has the authority to issue fines and stop work.

This comes just after the Pflugerville-based company raised $675 million in funding and advances its work in Central Texas with approval for engineering work on a pedestrian tunnel in Kyle.
