is committed to protecting the stormwater it releases to the Arroyo
Colorado and Laguna Madre. Dumping of trash, tires, chemicals, waste
from septic tanks, etc. into canals, ditches, resacas, etc. will pollute
our storm water. Apart from polluting our stormwater, the dumping of
waste into ditches and canals also impacts the drainage system that
protects our communities and neighborhoods from flooding during storms
and hurricanes. We are all affected by these activities as residents
and taxpayers of the county.
Any resident of Hidalgo County may
submit a complaint to the Hidalgo County Office of Environmental
Compliance concerning pollution to our water bodies.
Complaints may be submitted to (956) 318-2980, or by submitting it through our water pollution complaint email.
You will be asked to provide some basic information concerning what you
saw so that we may be able to address your concern.
Remember, if it drains, it's everybody's business.
