Information Security Reminder

With that in mind, please note that as an agency we won't email you attached files unexpectedly, and if we ask you to visit a webpage to enter information, in the URL you should see "https://pels.texas.gov", "https://engineers.texas.gov", or "https://txls.texas.gov".

If you receive an email from us that you suspect is a phishing or hacking attempt, please let us know at echohelp@pels.texas.gov and we'll investigate and get back to you ASAP.
