LEGAL HELP FOR HIGHLANDS, TEXAS RESIDENTS
Highlands is located just north of Interstate 10 on the eastern bank of the San Jacinto River and situated roughly 20 miles east of downtown Houston.
In the 1960s, a paper mill dumped its toxic waste bi-products in pits along the San Jacinto River, just across the way from Highlands. The toxic waste includes a chemical that is a known carcinogen in humans, called dioxin. A plan has been put forth by the EPA to remove the toxic waste from the pits, which could pose a bigger threat in the future to nearby communities if the pits continue to leak harmful chemicals.
The construction, manufacturing, and warehousing industries are a big part of the Highlands economy. Unfortunately, the manufacturing and construction industries are two of the most dangerous occupations in the country. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 899 of the 4,821 workers who died on the job in 2014 worked in the construction industry. Both the construction and manufacturing industries ranked in the top 5 in occupational fatalities in 2014.
Highlands’s residents have easy access to the east or west on Interstate 10. Many residents in Highlands make a commute of over 27 minutes to work. This prolonged time on the road during rush hour each morning and afternoon exposes drivers to an increased risk of vehicular accidents.
