  • records of hours of fuel oil firing
  • records of fuel oil purchases

These records must be maintained on site and made available on request for inspection by our staff or the inspectors of any air program that has jurisdiction. If you have questions about the type of records you should keep, contact the Air Program in the TCEQ regional office that serves your county.
