Air Quality Standard Permit for Permanent Rock and Concrete Crushers

Standard permit guidance and forms for permanent rock and concrete crusher plants.

The Air Quality Standard Permit for Permanent Rock and Concrete Crushers is authorized under the Texas Health and Safety Code Section 382.05195 , which authorizes the commission to issue this standard permit for many similar facilities.

Senate Bill 1250 is effective on September 1, 2011.

This self-implementing legislation removes the 440 yard distance requirement for concrete crushers that are producing a product that contains recycled materials and are located: in an enclosed building; within 25 miles of an international border; and in a municipality with a population of more than 6100 and less than 20,000.

Quick Screen

If your facility meets the conditions of this standard permit, you should be able to answer “Yes” to each of these questions:

  • Is the facility a rock or concrete crusher operating no more than 2,640 hours in any 12-month period?
  • Is the crusher no less than 200 feet from the property line and no less than 440 yards from any residence, school, or place of worship?
  • Will the throughput be no more than 200 tons per hour?

If your facility complies with the above screening criteria:

  • Review the standard permit considering your proposed application for further restrictions and limitations.
  • If your facility complies, you may claim this standard permit.

If your rock or concrete crusher cannot meet the conditions of this standard permit, you may qualify for other permitting options. To review your options, see Types of New Source Review Authorizations.
