WELCOME

We keep you informed about hazardous waste sites in your community.

At THEA we know that pollution in Houston is a problem, and safeguarding the environment is our primary objective. As a rule we focus on environmental contamination negatively impacting the air, water, and soil in our own backyard.

From your doorstep to the steps of our nation’s capital, we work to make sure you and your environment are safe and not an afterthought.

SUPERFUND SITES

A Superfund Site is a location where toxic waste has been dumped, left unattended, or is being improperly managed. Because these sites exist, we work to resolve environmental contamination through community and government collaboration. Safe cleanup of toxic waste areas is our number one priority.

PUBLIC HEALTH

Surprisingly, there are over two dozen Superfund Sites in the Houston area. As a result, we’re actively engaged to ensure health is at the forefront of local and national government officials agendas. One way we make this happen is through surveying communities across the Houston region and coordinating with various health agencies to monitor disease rates.

YOUR WATER

Water contamination is an invisible killer that enters our homes without detection. Incidentally, this is a reality that THEA knows too closely, and one that we simply cannot accept. Read our Founder’s story to learn about the sad reality of pollution in Houston and the experience that launched our organization.

We are dedicated to keeping you informed about the environment and water quality in your neighborhood. Learn more about our programs and how you can get involved.

High Cancer Rates.
A study performed of East Harris County showed cancer rates to be higher than expected. This area is home to many Superfund sites, and THEA considers this unacceptable.

The Reality of Superfund Sites.
It is startling to see the connection between pollution in Houston and illness. Because of this, we take public health surveys, and we also work with local health agencies and universities.
