Deer Park Community Advisory Council

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 29 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 15 industrial facilities in Deer Park, including chemical plants, a refinery, storage terminals, hazardous waste management firms, and related facilities. See DPCAC Plant Directory.

DPCAC celebrated its 25th Anniversary in March 2015.  Historical highlights were documented in a 25th Anniversary History booklet.

The next regular meeting of the
Deer Park Community Advisory Council will be on
Monday, June 1 (delayed due to Memorial Day).

Members will be celebrating the group's 25th anniversary in March and taking tours in April.

The tentative June topic is Marine Traffic on the Houston Ship Channel, with a Focus on Barges
