City of Austin Petition on Beneficial Reuse of Treated Wastewater

The City of Austin has petitioned the TCEQ to amend rules on the beneficial reuse of treated wastewater.

On March 14, 2016, the City of Austin requested that the TCEQ initiate rulemaking to amend 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapters 222 and 309. The proposed rules would allow permittees and applicants to rely on the beneficial reuse of treated wastewater when calculating the size of effluent storage and the amount of land required to dispose of wastewater. This would allow permittees and applicants to reduce the effluent storage size and dedicated land application acreage currently required by rule.

The public was invited to comment on the petition during the comment period from August 28, 2016 through October 28, 2016. The draft rules will be posted on this site when complete.
