The Environmental Enforcement Unit is responsible for responding to calls that fall within the scope of our environment such as illegal dumping, littering secure load law, loose materials law, burn laws, and other calls that may be detrimental to our environment. The unit responds to calls not only Montgomery county, but also the city of Clarksville. The unit works hand in hand with the Montgomery County workhouse bus which assists the unit whenever needed. The unit often works the roadways in search of violations under Tennessee State law concerning Secure Load Law, Littering and Loose Material Violations. The Environmental Enforcement Unit is commanded by Sergeant Michael Leutert.
Public education about the dangers of these problems and the means of enforcing state laws concerning the environment is an important part of the Environmental Enforcement Unit’s mission. The unit responds to an average of about 90 calls per year. Bi-County SWM, a self-sufficient agency operated solely by user and tipping fees, largely funds the operation of the Environmental Enforcement Unit.
