Our new map shows the location of all air pollution permit applications submitted in Texas. The map includes applications for the construction and operation of new polluting facilities (e.g. a proposed concrete batch plant or chemical processing plant) as well as requests from existing facilities to emit even more pollution, renewal applications for currently permitted facilities, and notices of public meetings and hearings concerning pending permit applications.
We update the map on a weekly basis using publicly available data from the Air Permits Division of the Office of Air at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
Be sure to check regularly to stay up to date on developments in your area so you can get involved early on in the permitting process. Each dot on the map represents the location of a facility with a pending application or scheduled public meeting and can be clicked on for more information. The links provided in the popup for each facility will take you to the official public notification issued by TCEQ and will provide more information about how you can get involved.
You can access the map via our website or subscribe to our “Weekly Air Permit Public Notices” email list or, if you’re already a subscriber, edit your email preferences to ensure you’re getting these emails as well.
Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions about an application or the map more generally.
