The TCEQ approval for an Edwards Aquifer protection plan will expire two years after the date of the letter, unless prior to that expiration date:
- 10 percent of the construction has been completed in two years, or
- 50 percent of the construction has been completed in 10 years
The form for an extension request specifies that a copy of the approval letter or the previous extension letter must be attached.
An extension request must be received before the plan expires, but not more than 60 days before the expiration date of the approved protection plan or a previously approved extension. If an extention request is received after the expiration date of an approved protection plan or previously approved extension, then the request cannot be approved and a new application with appropriate fees will be required. Also, we cannot grant an extension if the proposed regulated activity or approved plan has changed.
The approved extension will expire six months after the original expiration date of the approved plan or the last approved extension.
