Deer Park Community Advisory Council (DPCAC)
builds a true partnership between Houston Ship Channel industry and community in Deer Park, Texas At meetings held 9-10 times a year, we provide a forum for candid conversation about industry-related issues of community interest or concern.
Open, honest dialogue makes plant members aware of what the community expects of them. It helps community members understand what plants do and how they work.
The primary issues we address are environment, safety, health, security, emergency response and communications, and hazardous materials transportation. We also discuss other quality of life issues like the economy and education.
DPCAC currently has 28 community members
plus several Deer Park High School student members. They include individuals who live, work or attend school in Deer Park, and representatives of organizations and government entities serving Deer Park.
Twenty plant members
represent 17 industrial facilities
in Deer Park, including chemical plants, a refinery, storage terminals, hazardous waste management firms, and related facilities. See DPCAC Plant Directory
