Nomadic Aggregates, LLC, has applied for a permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to construct a new concrete batch plant in Northeast Houston. If authorized, the new plant would be located at 4213 Mooney Road, Houston, Harris County, Texas 77093. You can find more information about the permit application here.
If you’re living in the area, your quality of life may be directly impacted by this facility.
Concrete batch plants can emit large amounts of harmful particulate matter pollution, create a safety hazard from increased truck traffic on residential streets, and become a noisy nuisance. These plants are currently permitted to operate 24/7.
However, it’s not too late to take action!
State Representative Armando Walle has requested that the TCEQ organize a public meeting for residents to express their concerns about the proposed facility. We strongly encourage you to attend:
Thursday, January 30th
North East Community Center

Houston, Texas 77093Additionally, residents who feel that they may be affected by this facility, and live within a quarter-mile of the plant, should file a contested case hearing request as soon as possible and at the latest before the close of the public meeting on January 30th.
When submitting your request, be sure to include the permit number 158474 and the following information:
(1) your name (or for a group or association, an official representative), mailing address, daytime phone number;
(2) applicant’s name and registration number
