The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is providing an opportunity for the public to comment on a proposed amendment to the air quality standard permit for concrete batch plants.

TCEQ originally issued the concrete batch plant standard permit in 2000, amended it in 2003, and again in 2012.

This proposed amendment will update the standard permit to add the exemption from emissions and distance limitations in 30 TAC § 116.610(a)(1)Exit the TCEQ. This exemption was inadvertently removed during the 2012 amendment.

The proposed amendment to the air quality standard permit is subject to a 30-day comment period. During the comment period, any person may submit written comments on the proposed standard permit amendment. The comment period closes at midnight on June 29, 2021.

Written comments may be submitted electronically via the agency’s public comments webpage, or via mail to Gwen Ricco, MC 205, Office of Legal Services, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087. All comments should reference Non-Rule Project No. 2021-016-OTH-NR.
