Illegal Dumping Program Update

The District A Hot Team has been out picking up illegal dumping throughout our district. Before this team was assembled, it often took months for the City to pick up illegal dumping. Thanks to our team, most of the dumping is now picked up the same day we receive the report.

We continue to work with the Harris County Constable’s Environmental Crimes Unit to install illegal dumping cameras, where feasible, to catch those who are committing this crime.

If you see illegal dumping along a street, ditch, or park, please contact my office at [email protected] or 832-393-3010. Please note that our team cannot enter private property.

Report Water Smell

Houston Public Works (HPW) is aware that some customers are noticing a water smell. Samples collected by Houston Water indicate disinfectant residuals are within range. Per HPW, Houston’s drinking water still meets or exceeds all Federal & State standards & is safe. If your water smells, please report to 311. The information will help Houston Water map out locations so it can address the concern.

Discolored and/or smelly water can usually be corrected by flushing the water from the pipes of your home or business. To flush the water:

  • Run cold-water from faucets for up to 10 minutes
  • To flush automatic ice makers, make three batches of ice and discard
