Please Note

With few exceptions, the meetings and hearings on this page have been requested by the public for the specific purpose of discussing permitting issues, such as whether a facility should be allowed to obtain, renew, or amend a Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, New Source Review, or Municipal Solid Waste permit at a specific location.

All of the meetings are arranged and conducted by the TCEQ's Office of the Chief Clerk (OCC). Most of the hearings, however, are arranged and conducted by the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH), which was created expressly for that purpose.

This calendar only lists meetings and contested case hearings on permitting cases. In addition, the SOAH hearings in this calendar only announce the first notice, or preliminary hearing date, of a case, and are posted purely as a courtesy to our customers. For information on subsequent SOAH hearings, contact SOAH at the number listed below.

Follow these links to find information about TCEQ commission agendas, commission work sessions, the executive director's agenda, and public hearings for proposed rules; or SOAH hearings Exit the TCEQ on rate cases, Certificates of Convenience and Necessity (CCN), enforcement matters, and contract disputes.

If you have questions about a specific hearing or meeting, please call the contact person listed on the hearing or meeting notice. If you have general questions about this calendar, please call OCC at 512-239-3300.

SOAH may be reached by phone 512-475-4993, by E-mail (feedback@soah.texas.gov), or on the Web (www.soah.texas.gov). Exit the TCEQ

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
FOR WATER QUALITY TPDES PERMIT
FOR INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER
NEW

PERMIT NO. WQ0004996000

APPLICATION.
North Texas Municipal Water District, P.O. Box 2408, Wylie, Texas 75098, which proposes to operate the North Texas Municipal Water District Leonard Water Treatment Plant, applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) on June 11, 2012, for a new permit, proposed Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0004996000, which authorizes the discharge of treated desalination concentrate at a daily average flow not to exceed 9,300,000 gallons per day. The facility is 700 feet north of the intersection of County Road 4965 and State Highway 78, west of the City of Leonard, Fannin County, Texas 75452. The effluent is discharged to an unnamed tributary; then to the Red River Below Lake Texoma in Segment No. 0202 of the Red River Basin. Because Segment No. 0202 is within 300 feet of the outfall, the discharge is considered direct to segment and the unnamed tributary is not assessed. The designated uses for Segment No. 0202 are primary contact recreation, public water supply, and high aquatic life use. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (January 2003) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. The Tier 1 antidegradation review preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. The Tier 2 review preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in the Red River Below Lake Texoma, which has been identified as having high aquatic life use. Existing uses will be maintained and protected.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility’s general location is provided as a public courtesy and not part of the application or notice. For exact location, please refer to the application. www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=33.381388&lng=-96.276666&zoom=13&type=r

Box 1920, Liberty Hill, Texas 78642, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0014477001 to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from an annual average flow not to exceed 1,200,000 gallons per day to an annual average flow not to exceed 4,000,000 gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on February 11, 2013.

This combined notice is being issued to correct the zip code in the facility location description and meet the TCEQ’s requirement that the notices be published in the newspaper of largest circulation in the county in which the facility is located.

The facility is located approximately 5,000 feet north of the South Fork San Gabriel River and 2,000 feet east of US Highway 183 in Williamson County, Texas 78641. The treated effluent is discharged to South Fork San Gabriel River in Segment No. 1250 of the Brazos River Basin.

Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments, and the executive Director's decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision and for requesting a contested case hearing. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court.

your name, address, phone number; applicant's name and proposed permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the proposed facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; and, the statement "[I/we] request a contested case hearing." If the request for a contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group's representative for receiving future correspondence; identify an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the proposed facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member's location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are germane to the group's purpose.

Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

The Commission will only grant a contested case hearing on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commission's decision on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues that were raised in timely filed comments that were not subsequently withdrawn.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION.
The Executive Director may issue final approval of the application unless a timely contested case hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed. If a timely hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed, the Executive Director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION
FOR AN AIR QUALITY PERMIT

PROPOSED AIR QUALITY PERMIT NUMBERS: 111393 AND PSDTX1368

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION.
Southern Power Company, PO Box 2641, Birmingham, AL 35202-2641, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of Proposed Air Quality Permit 111393 and Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Air Quality Permit PSDTX1368, which would authorize construction of the Trinidad Electric Generating Facility located east of Highway 274 and west of Forehand Road, approximately 0.75 miles north of Highway 31, Trinidad, Henderson County, Texas 75163. This application was submitted to the TCEQ on June 27, 2013. The proposed facility will emit the following air contaminants in a significant amount: nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, organic compounds, particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less. In addition, the facility will emit the following air contaminants: sulfur dioxide, ammonia, sulfuric acid, and ammonium sulfate.

The degree of PSD increment predicted to be consumed by the proposed facility and other increment consuming sources in the area is as follows:

PM10
Maximum Averaging Time Maximum Increment Consumed (µg/m3) Allowable Increment (µg/m3)
24-hour 5.7 30
PM2.5
Maximum Averaging Time Maximum Increment Consumed (µg/m3) Allowable Increment (µg/m3)
24-hour 4.9 9
Annual 0.52 4

The executive director has determined that the emissions of air contaminants from the proposed facility which are subject to PSD review will not violate any state or federal air quality regulations and will not have any significant adverse impact on soils, vegetation, or visibility. All air contaminants have been evaluated, and “best available control technology” will be used for the control of these contaminants.

The executive director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The permit application, executive director’s preliminary decision, draft permit, and the executive director’s preliminary determination summary and executive director’s air quality analysis, will be available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ Tyler regional office, and at the Clint W. Murchison Memorial Library, 121 South Prairieville Street, Athens, Henderson County, Texas, beginning the first day of publication of this notice. The facility’s compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review at the TCEQ Tyler Regional Office, 2916 Teague Dr, Tyler, Texas.

A written response to all formal comments will be prepared by the Executive Director and considered by the Commissioners before they reach a decision on the permit. A copy of the response will be sent to each person who submits a formal comment or who requested to be on the mailing list for this application and who provides a mailing address. Only relevant and material issues raised during the formal comment period can be considered if a contested case hearing is granted.

AMENDED NOTICE OF HEARING
(To change hearing date.)
DHJB DEVELOPMENT, LLC
SOAH Docket No. 582-14-3427
TCEQ Docket No. 2013-2228-MWD
Permit No. WQ0014975001

APPLICATION.
DHJB Development, LLC, 102A Cordillera Ridge, Boerne, Texas 78006, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Permit No. WQ0014975001 to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from a daily average flow not to exceed 75,000 gallons per day to a daily average flow not to exceed 350,000 gallons per day. The current permit authorizes the disposal of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 75,000 gallons per day via a public access subsurface drip irrigation system with a minimum area of 750,000 square feet.

The wastewater treatment facility will be located approximately 0.7 mile north of Farm-to-Market Road 1863 and 0.5 mile east of US Highway 281 in Comal County, Texas 78163. The proposed outfall will be located in the Edwards Aquifer Contributing Zone above the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The treated effluent will be discharged to an unnamed tributary; thence to Upper Cibolo Creek in Segment No. 1908 of the San Antonio River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is limited aquatic life use for the unnamed tributary. The designated uses for Segment No. 1908 are primary contact recreation, public water supply, aquifer protection and high aquatic life use.

In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code § 307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (January 2003) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier 1 antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degredation of water quality is expected in Upper Cibolo Creek, which has been identified as having high aquatic life use. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Bulverde City Hall, 30360 Cougar Bend, Bulverde, Texas. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility’s general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice.

10:00 a.m. – August 19, 2014
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
