December 16, 2022: Houston Business Accused of Leaking Chemicals into Storm Drain

The Houston Police Department is investigating a chemical manufacturing company for allegedly leaking hazardous chemicals into the storm drain. Sgt. Patrick Morrissey, part of HPD’s Environmental Investigations Unit, said they are “conducting an environmental search warrant out at the property” of an unidentified business on Boyles Street. “We’re going to be collecting evidence to find out what that discharge was and if it was potentially criminal in nature.”
Houston Fire Department Capt. Jason Wilson said “…there has been some type of illegal discharge of those chemicals into the stormwater system. Which then affects the streams, lakes, rivers, bays, and things like that. The food we eat. It also puts pressure on our stormwater system.”
