Permitting Update: Texas

Neighbors living near the site of a planned rock crushing plant in east Austin said they’re worried about the impact on their air quality at a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) public meeting Tuesday.

The location of the plant is at 300 Edwin Lane, which is less than two miles away from more than 250 single-family homes.
