PERRYTON, Texas (KFDA) - The Texas Environmental Regulators approved an agreement today that will cost a man they say operated illegal dumping operations outside of Perryton.

Ramon Vela denied all the allegations, but will be paying a fine of about $29 thousand according to the agreement.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality says pits contained a variety of material including demolished buildings.

Another pit had about 2,000 burning tires in it.
