High-tech supervision is coming to the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan. GPS tracking units will soon be deployed to monitor the performance of some grant recipients.

Reflash and Refresh the Air

The TCEQ is encouraging fleet operators and heavy-duty truck drivers to curb emissions with some basic engine adjustments.

Fines Go to Work for the Environment

After some fine-tuning of the TCEQ's Supplemental Environmental Projects, more funds are being spent on beneficial projects in local communities.
