Environmental Enforcement 

Keep Kaufman Clean!

Kaufman County has experienced a sharp increase in population. With this growth comes added pressures on the environment. For generations, many practices which were acceptable in the past, have now become illegal. The dumping of trash at unpermitted locations, throwing away old car batteries, and dumping used motor oil behind the garage or along fence lines and public roadways, are all crimes that carry a fine and even a jail sentence. Although these acts have always been harmful to our environment, we now have a better understanding of the extent and duration of these activities impacting our environment. The increasing population and number of people engaging in these types of activities have made it necessary to aggressively investigate and prosecute environmental crimes.
