For many years, TNC was on the environmental "bad guy" list. They were repeatedly cited by the city of Dallas for violations related to polluted water discharge. At one point, eight citations were issued, and the city threatened to turn off TNC's water.
That's when TNC began changing their practices. In 1988, TNC won a "Dallas Blue Thumb" award for water quality, and they never looked back.
