Bulk mineral product handling facilities are permitted by rule if they meet the conditions stated in 30 TAC Sections 106.4 and 106.144. Registrations under this PBR must be approved before construction may begin. This page gives a brief overview of this PBR and links to relevant rules and forms.

Note: All PBR checklists that are made available to the public are optional and are not required forms. These checklists are provided for your convenience only.

Quick Screen

To determine whether your facility qualifies for this PBR, first consider this quick screen:

  • This PBR does not apply to asbestos-handling facilities.
  • The facility (including associated stationary equipment and stockpiles) must be at least 300 feet from the nearest:
    • Recreational area,
    • School,
    • Residence, other than that of the facility owner, facility operator, or site owner, or
    • Other structure, unless that structure is used by only the facility owner, facility operator, or site owner.

If your facility complies with these limitations:

  • Complete our PBR Applicability Checklist, TCEQ Form - 10149, to find out whether your facility meets the general conditions for a PBR, and
  • To find out whether it meets the specific conditions for this PBR, complete our PBR 106.144 Checklist, TCEQ Form - 10106.

If your facility cannot comply with the conditions indicated in these checklists, see Types of New Source Review Authorizations for other options.
