Air Quality Standard Permit for Temporary Rock and Concrete Crushers

Standard permit guidance and forms for temporary rock and concrete crushers.

The Air Quality Standard Permit for Temporary Rock and Concrete Crushers is authorized under the Texas Health and Safety Code Section 382.05195 Exit the TCEQ, which authorizes us to issue standard permits for many similar facilities.

Senate Bill 1250 is effective on September 1, 2011

This self-implementing legislation removes the 440 yard distance requirement for concrete crushers that are producing a product that contains recycled materials and are located: in an enclosed building; within 25 miles of an international border; and in a municipality with a population of more than 6100 and less than 20,000.

To determine whether your facility qualifies for this standard permit, review the standard permit Adobe Acrobat PDF Document .

If your facility meets the conditions of this standard permit, you should be able to answer "Yes" to each of these questions:

For Tier I Operations:

  • Will the throughput be no greater than 125 tons per hour?
  • Will the footprint of the plant be at least 200 feet from the nearest property line?
  • If you intend to crush concrete, will the nearest school, place of worship, or single- or multifamily residence be a minimum of 440 yards from the crushing facility?

For Tier II Operations:

  • Will the throughput be no greater than 250 tons per hour?
  • Will the footprint of the plant be at least 300 feet from the nearest property line?
  • If you intend to crush concrete, will the nearest school, place of worship, or single- or multifamily residence be at least 440 yards from the crushing facility?

If your temporary rock or concrete crushing plant cannot meet the conditions of this standard permit, it might qualify for other permitting options. To find out, see Types of New Source Review Authorizations.
