Now along the Gulf Coast Matagorda County and its neighboring counties are set for the same influx of Contractors for years to come. Not only are new gas pipelines bringing in high paying jobs the White Stallion Energy Center this last week cleared additional hurdles. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded the plant a permit to build a loading and unloading facility on the Colorado River. And the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality issued a water quality certification to compliment the air permit the Plant already had obtained. A construction date has been slated for the end of the 1st quarter of 2012.
What does this mean? Several years of building and requiring 2200-2500 contract workers to complete the facility. Bay City began gearing up with several new hotels for the South Texas Nuclear Power Plant which was put on hold due to the Japan Tsunami and Nuclear Reactor shutdown. Recently Bay City Holiday RV Park and 60 North RV Park two new RV parks in Bay City have been constructed. A little further south down 35 and just 48 miles from the White Stallion plant in the town of Port Lavaca, Texas New Port Lavaca RV Park is developing over 97 sites.
