Air Quality
Air Monitoring
The latest forecast for air quality conditions in Texas' metropolitan areas.
Air Modeling
TCEQ staff use computer models to simulate the meteorological conditions and chemical reactions that contribute to the formation of air pollutants and to predict how air quality in a region will be affected by economic and population growth, and by reducing pollution emissions.
SIP
The Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) is the state’s comprehensive plan to clean the air and meet federal air quality standards.
TERP
The Texas Emissions Reduction Plan provides financial incentives to eligible individuals, businesses or local governments to reduce emissions from polluting vehicles and equipment.
Area Source
Small emission sources that are inventoried as a group, such as some commercial, industrial, governmental or institutional sources from a specific area.
Point Source Emissions Inventory
Information on emissions from large industrial sources.
Emissions Banking and Trading
Programs for obtaining credit for achieved reductions in emissions. Data on credits available for sale or trade. Guidance and required forms.
Mobile Source
Reducing emissions from vehicles, construction equipment, boats, lawn equipment and various non-stationary sources of air pollution.
Tax Relief for Pollution Control Property
A program to ensure that capital investments undertaken to comply with environmental regulations do not result in an increase in property taxes.
Air Quality Successes
The TCEQ diligently incorporates the latest scientific research, methods, and models and cutting-edge technology to strategically investigate, evaluate, and improve air quality.
Barnett Shale Geological Area
Barnett Shale is a hydrocarbon-producing geological formation consisting of sedimentary rocks and stretching from the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex west and south, covering 5,000 square miles and 21 counties. Since 2002, gas production activity in the area has experienced significant growth and the TCEQ has been improving emissions data from oil and gas production and is conducting in-depth measurements to fully evaluate potential health effects. 
Air Research
Understanding the sources of air pollution and how to improve air quality.
Air Quality Rules: Stationary Sources
Rules for stationary sources that are part of the State Implementation Plan strategy to meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards.
Air Quality Track
Presentations on this topic to be given at the Environmental Trade Fair and Conference, May 1-2, 2012.
Eagle Ford Shale Geological Area
The Eagle Ford Shale is a hydrocarbon-producing geological formation extending over 24 counties. It stretches from the Mexican border between Laredo and Eagle Pass up through counties east of Temple and Waco.
