Houston Health Department




The bureau conducts investigations in response to complaints, surveillance, and other suspected air and water quality problem, landfill compliance issue and wastewater treatment violations. The bureau conducts investigations at municipal and solid waste facilities (landfills) on a quarterly basis and more frequently as necessary to address any compliance issues. Odors, liquid runoff or pooling water from landfills indicate a problem and should be reported as a complaint. The bureau also conducts investigations at any wastewater treatment plant that discharge water that may flow into the city water supply.
