  • TCEQ must survey the state annually for aggregate production operations.

  • TCEQ must inspect each aggregate production operation every three years.

  • TCEQ must establish registration fees not to exceed $1,000 per year.

  • TCEQ may assess penalties of $5,000 to $10,000 for every year in which an aggregate production operation operates without registration (total penalty cannot exceed $25,000).
