Tracking Groundwater Contamination Sites in Texas

Recently news reports have come out across the state siting a report of groundwater contamination near Texas’ 16 monitored coal fired power plants by Environmental Integrity Project. Story here.

On an annual basis the Texas Groundwater Protection Committee publishes the TCEQ, Joint Groundwater Monitoring and Contamination Report to the public and TCEQ has an online Groundwater Contamination Viewer mapping system for the public to identify areas where groundwater contamination is being monitored, remediated, and overseen by specific entities.

The District works very closely with these agencies that monitor these locations for public health and safety with area groundwater wells.
