Compliance Services


The goal of Compliance Services is to ensure that all documented violations of Texas environmental laws and regulations are resolved. Violations identified by Pollution Control Services are documented in Violation Notices that are issued to the violator. The Violation Notice asks for a written reply detailing the circumstances behind the violation, and the efforts made to remediate harm to the environment and to stop the violation from occurring again.





Compliance Cases

A vast majority of violations identified by Pollution Control Services are resolved through educating the violator on current environmental laws and regulations. Persistent and/or substantial violations are referred to the County Attorney’s Office for civil enforcement action or the District Attorney’s Office for criminal enforcement action. These cases result in penalties and/or injunctive language.

The investigator will explain what law or regulation you violated and give you contact information for additional help if needed. You should immediately cease the violation and pick up any spill, contaminated soil or solid waste and properly dispose of the waste and spilled material. Dispose of the waste at a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) approved site for disposal. Mail copies of the disposal receipts and your written reply to the Violation Notice within 10 days to the Compliance Coordinator listed on your Violation Notice or to:
