Houston Environmental Law Cases
Environmental law is a very broad area of the law consisting of federal and state statutes, regulations, and case law relating to the prevention and cleanup of contamination of the environment--including the ground, water, and air--by chemicals, hazardous wastes, and other pollutants. Environmental law also includes private actions which can be brought by citizens to force the cleanup of contamination or pollution. Such suits are provided for in a number of federal statutes.
While the Texas Supreme Court has disallowed most causes of civil action for those who claim personal harm from environmental contamination, some causes of civil action remain. For example, homeowners may have a cause of action for loss of property value.
A current problem in the Houston area is that of irradiated water. In some parts of our community, there are naturally occurring levels of radiation in the ground water. Developers of residential properties and municipal utility districts (MUDs) need to be aware of this dangerous water condition and must drill to another water level to secure safe water for the community. Lack of access to safe water will have a significant negative impact on property values.
