Concrete Batch Plant Program

Harris County Pollution Control Services (PCS) began the Concrete Batch Plant Program in February 2020.  It was designed to take a more proactive look at the numerous concrete batch plants in the County to determine their impacts on the environment and resulting health effects. A concrete plant or batch plant is a facility that combines various ingredients to form concrete. Some of these inputs include water, air, admixtures, sand, aggregate (rocks, gravel, etc.), fly ash, silica fume, slag, and cement. Over 130 concrete batch plants are located within unincorporated Harris County and the City of Houston.

Community Engagement

Harris County Pollution Control Services (PCS) is developing a plan that sets priorities for environmental quality decisions to ensure Harris County is a thriving, sustainable community for all other counties to follow for future generations. Community Engagement will be the cornerstone of our plan. We look forward to having positive conversations with Harris County residents about how we can all work together to create a better future.

PCS is conducting research on your concern for pollution in your community. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes.

Please access the survey here: https://form.jotform.com/222545584580158
If you have any questions about the survey, please email us at PCS-Communications@pcs.hctx.net
