Angry Pasadena residents demanded yesterday that state officials deny a surface water discharge permit to the owner of a closed hazardous waste landfill in their midst and instead force the owner to consider clean up measures that may be more costly.The 2 1/2 -hour hearing on the permit application by Browning-Ferris Industries Inc., which owns the closed landfill on Solley Road, was peppered with applause for permit opponents. More than a dozen nearby property owners and elected officials challenged assertions that the Houston waste company made on the safety of the water it seeks to discharge into an intermittent stream that leads to Marley Creek.
