Many small Texas manufacturers don’t necessarily understand which EPA and TCEQ environmental and hazardous materials compliance regulations apply to their operations, let alone how to manage them.
Here’s a quick summary of some of the basic environmental and hazardous materials rules that apply to typical Texas manufacturers.
Environmental Permit Requirements:
Storm Water Permit:
- Triggered by SIC code
- Must either qualify for No Exposure
- If not, must develop and manage Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
- Must determine if operations require New Source Review Air Permit
- Or if company qualifies for Permit by Rule (PBR)
Hazardous Materials Requirements:
Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasure Plan (SPCC):
- Triggered by quantity of stored hydrocarbons
Tier II Reporting:
- Triggered by quantity of stored hazardous chemicals
