General Permit Requirements to Discharge Water from a Concrete Production Facility
Before discharging from a concrete production facility:
- Read the general permit (TXG110000) 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.
- 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.
- Apply online using these instructions or apply by paper using the Notice of Intent (NOI) form.
- Submit an Application Fee ($100) to Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's (TCEQ's) Financial Administrative Division, Revenue Section (MC-214) or by ePay.

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 MS4.
Complying With Your Permit
After obtaining coverage:
- Adhere to the requirements of the permit TXG110000.
- 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 (NOT) when all discharges authorized by the permit are eliminated, completed, or if the operator or owner changes.
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.
