Bringing Research, Education, and Advocacy Together for Houston's Environment

Every day, the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ) collects data about air pollution in Houston. They make this information available to the public.

Air Alliance Houston put together this dashboard so people in the Houston area can better understand the environmental hazards in their neighborhoods.

Key features of the BREATHE tool include:

  • explore where environmental hazards and public air monitors are located in your neighborhood
  • locate environmental hazards within your local and state elected officials' districts
  • identify where air permit applications have been filed and receive notifications about new air permit applications
  • determine where illegal air pollution releases have occurred ("emissions events")
  • display demographic information
