Houston Health Department


The bureau conducts investigations in response to complaints, surveillance, other suspected air and water quality problems, landfill compliance issues and wastewater treatment violations. 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 discharges water which may flow into the city water supply.
