Asphalt Plant Construction and Operation

An asphalt plant requires one approval per season for operation in the form of a Certificate of Approval. Additional approvals may be required if the make-up or components of the plant change during the paving season. Many companies operate the same mobile unit many times throughout the paving season and need only request an approval to set-up when altering location of the plant.


Completed application forms must include:

  1. Sketch of the plant’s layout;
  2. Directions to find the proposed location relative to major landmarks such as highway intersections;
  3. The actual shape of the quarry;
  4. The relative location of any nearby rivers and/or ponds;
  5. The relative location of any nearby homes, commercial establishments and/or recreational facilities;
  6. The proposed location of the asphalt plant within the quarry including settling ponds, fuel tanks, and the source(s) of make-up water; and
  7. The proposed location for applying release agents to the truck boxes.
