Concrete Batch Plant Permitting

Concrete batch plants go through a stringent permitting process.

Did You Know?

  • State law does not prohibit a concrete batch plant from being located in a residential neighborhood or near a school
  • Concrete plants must obtain air, water and waste permits or registrations from the TCEQ
  • Standard permits have requirements that apply to the same type of facility
  • TCEQ conducts health effects reviews as part of issuing a standard permit
  • To be a party in a permit hearing, a person must reside within 440 yards of a proposed plant
