Make an Open Records Request
Do I Need to Submit a Formal Open Records Request?
If you want to simply view or obtain copies of agency records that are filed in TCEQ's Central File Room, a formal Open Records Request is not necessary.
If you need assistance identifying records maintained by the central file room, contact the Central File Room. We organize our files by permit number and facility name. Providing this information will make it easier for us to quickly respond to your request. Be as specific as possible about the information you are seeking.

How to Submit an Open Records Request
You will need to file an Open Records Request for any and all documents, pending applications, ongoing compliance or enforcement actions, or records NOT available in TCEQ's Central File Room or on our website.
