Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo joined Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia, county officials and representatives from a research nonprofit and private industry provided an update on actions the county has taken over the past two years to enhance environmental monitoring and enforcement.

Since the ITC Fire on March 17, 2019, Harris County has undertaken historic steps to modernize the county’s ability to protect the environment and enable a proactive response to threats to public health and safety.


We are committed to addressing the root causes of repeated incidents that disproportionately affect vulnerable populations who live in the shadow of industry.
