Our Air & Water Pollution Control Services division is divided into two sections.
Air Pollution Services assists the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) with permitting, compliance inspections, complaint investigation, enforcement and air monitoring within Galveston County.
Water Pollution Services is contracted by Galveston County and several cities to conduct wastewater treatment plant inspections, complaint investigation, grease trap inspection and monitoring of ambient water sources.
Texas Beach Watch is a grant-funded program with Texas General Land Office to sample beachfront water along Galveston Island, Bolivar Peninsula and Texas City Dike.
Storm Water Management helps maintain regulatory compliance with applicable federal, state, and local storm water regulations in the unincorporated portions of the county by conducting permit inspections and outreach.
