The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality positions personnel within a quarter of a mile of the fertilyzer plant which exploded Wednesday night in West, Texas north of Waco.

TCEQ will be the lead for coordinating state efforts to conduct air monitoring, plume modeling and assessing environmental concerns.

TCEQ has deployed its Mobile Command Post to West. TCEQ's Waco regional staff is also deployed to West. Additional emergency response staff from San Antonio and DFW regions will also deploy to West.

This is all part of the agency's emergency response plan.
