Get your SSC trips in now

May not be around much longer or be inaccessible. Even though I am new I know everyone's thoughts on the SSC and that it has become beating a dead horse. And that this is probably just the main campus the are buying. Still a neat photo place.


WAXAHACHIE - Three months ago, a chemical plant explosion upset Waxahachie residents exposed to the smoke and fumes. Now, plant officials are upsetting residents with plans to expand to an infamous plot of land on the outskirts of town.

Waxahachie residents won't soon forget the images. Billowing plumes of flames and smoke, pouring from the Magnablend chemical plant. Few knew the risks of living next door could be so high.

"Residents have complained about health problems and Magnablend has totally ignored that," says Waxahachie resident Dave Vance, who has spent the past two months researching the company and the accident. "They continue saying that air and water was safe and we've got records from the TCEQ that show otherwise."

A preliminary state investigation has found three violations at another Magnablend plant, and continues its criminal inquiry at the Magnablend Central plant that exploded.

Now Magnablend has pledged to relocate.

It has offered to buy a 135-acre site west of town. The property was once known as the Super Conducting Super Collider, home to what was to be the the world's largest atom smasher. But in 1993, Congress pulled the plug on the project and the complex has wasted away.

Magnablend has quietly made an offer to buy and revive.

So quiet, neighbors like Al Nardiello are just now finding out about it. Suddenly a new segment of the population is upset.

"I'm really shocked," Nardiello said. "I didn't come out here to be neighbors with a chemical plant. I'm sorry if that sounds rash."

All day Thursday, word spread.

Residents are expressing anger that their peaceful, agrarian existence could be invaded by a chemical plant with a dangerous past.

Another concern to some is the prospect of heavy tanker trucks, loaded with toxic chemicals, rolling up and down the hilly, narrow, two-lane highways that lead to the plant.

Ellis County Commissioner Heath Sims lives just a few miles from the proposed plant.

"As a resident, I'm concerned, but I also, as an elected official, have to look at this issue from both sides," Sims said.

He said while the county can't prohibit nor regulate the plant, he says the owner has pledged safety first.

"We just hope that through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and its permitting process, that everybody does what they say they are going to do," Sims said.

Magnablend's owner plans to meet with citizens Friday night near the proposed site and calm their fears.

Ugh. I hate waxahachie, but damnit, magnablend needs to GTFO.

I'm wary of exploring either of those places.

The tunnel would be a great place to toss unwanted chemicals till the environment and ground water is so contaminated, no one can live within 10 miles of the place. That's assuming.... the tunnel does exist. Kinda like Santa, lots of stories and pictures, but I've never seen him or it.

This is where they keep all the unicorns and leprechauns bro. That being said, how can it not exist?

We had a member here a while back that got unprecedented access to the tunnel. A mild mannered unassuming little fellow from Maypearl, a remedial math teacher as I recall his screen name was something like bklongbooger or bkthebugger or something. He even offered to guide us to the tunnel but you guys were so mean to him that he left. Even Raticus tried to bail out what was left of this guys self esteem but he withdrew and was never heard from again. Or maybe it was that unfortunate incident at school with that whole after class indecent exposure thing or whatever.

Anyway he was the only one to ever gain any tunnel access and now hes gone.

Even when companies buy stuff like this, they never do anything with it for months.

what'd be funny is if the big chemical company bought the main campus and started pumping their toxic sludge down the hole and it started oozing out the other end at the LINAC after some start up company just forked over 600 big ones for it to manufacture some organic soy based meat substitute products or something

Just pierce the hymen somewhere in the tunnel between the LINAC and Main Campus and let those chemicals rape that organic meat.

The tunnels are there, just full of water and all entrances were filled in.

Just happened to be in Maypearl with some motorcycle enthusiasts yesterday and offered to show them the defunct SSC magnet lab (some had never heard of it the others never knew it was around here)

When we got there there was a temporary chain link fence and the biggest security guard Ive ever seen. When we approached the north parking lot he came running out to meet us but we had already wheeled around and went over by the east gate as we were leaving he had already jumped in his vehicle and was standing in the middle of the gate with his arms folded like some giant =none shall pass= loyal sheep dog so we just waived at him. He probably thought we were coming to bust the place up and wasnt going to back down even though outnumbered.

Id like to see someone get past this big serious fellow he was wearing insulated coveralls like snowmobilers wear so Im guessing he is there all night too. Obviously takes his job pretty seriously.
