General Permit Requirements to Discharge Water from a Concrete Production Facility

Steps to follow when applying for coverage under General Permit No. TXG110000 to discharge facility wastewater, contact storm water, or both from ready-mixed concrete plants, concrete products plants, and their associated facilities (SIC Codes 3271, 3272, and 3273).

Before discharging from a concrete production facility:

  1. Read the general permit (TXG110000) Adobe Acrobat Document to make sure it applies to your discharge.
    • If the general permit does not apply, you may need to obtain an individual permit.
    • If the general permit does apply, continue with Step 2.
  2. Review your facility's compliance history ranking.
    • If your facility has a ranking of "high," "satisfactory," or "inadequate information" continue to Step 3.
    • If the ranking is "unsatisfactory," your facility is not eligible for coverage under a general permit. You must apply for an individual permit instead.
  3. Submit a notification package, which includes:
    • Notice of Intent Microsoft Windows Document (NOI)
    • Application Fee ($100) submitted to Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's (TCEQ's) Financial Administrative Division, Revenue Section (MC-214) or by ePay.

Discharging to a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System?

If you are discharging to an MS4   submit a copy of the NOI, NOC, and/or NOT to the TCEQ and provide copies to the operator of the system.

What's Next?

After review, we will send you one of the following:

  • Acknowledgment Letter; if everything is acceptable to authorize your coverage.
  • A Notice of Deficiency; if information is incomplete or missing, we will send you a letter requesting the needed information. You will have 30 days to respond to this request.
  • A Denial Letter; if the coverage has been denied.

Complying With Your Permit

After obtaining coverage:

  • Adhere to the requirements of the permit TXG110000 Microsoft Windows Document.
  • Complete and submit the Discharge Monitoring Report Form (3320-1), as required.
  • Submit a Notice of Change (NOC) if you failed to submit any relevant facts, submitted incorrect information in an NOI or if any previously submitted information has changed.
  • Submit a Notice of Termination Microsoft Word Document (NOT) when all discharges authorized by the permit are eliminated, completed, or if the operator or owner changes.

Annual Fees

Coverage continues to be active until a NOT is submitted. Annual water quality fees of $500 will accrue on September 1st of each year that the permit is active.
