Water Discharges from Aquaculture Facilities: Am I Regulated?

Find out of your aquaculture facility needs General Permit TXG130000 or an individual permit for discharges of wastewater.

If you plan to discharge wastewater into or adjacent to water in the state from an aquaculture facility or a related aquaculture activity, then you need an environmental permit. The two types of permits available for this activity are a general permit or an individual permit.

General Permit TXG130000

If you operate one of the following facilities, you may qualify for General Permit TXG130000 to discharge wastewater into or adjacent to water in the state of Texas:

  • a concentrated aquatic animal production facility;
  • an aquatic animal production facility; or
  • a related aquaculture activity.

See if this applies to you and what you should do at General Permit Requirements for Water Discharges from Aquaculture.

Individual Permit

If you don't qualify for coverage under this general permit, you must apply for an individual permit for these discharges.
