The Dallas City Attorney has now cited Columbia Meat Packing Plant with numerous violations in connection with apparent runoff into city waters.

That runoff is presumed to be pig's blood and was spotted trickling into Cedar Creek which feeds into the Trinity River.

The city said any of the violations could create health and safety problems for employees, neighbors and the general public.

No comment from the company which has been operating there for a century.
