Environmental Flows for the Cypress Basin

House Bill (HB) 3 and Senate Bill (SB) 3, 80th Legislature, 2007, require the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to adopt environmental flow standards for the river basin and bay systems in the state. HB3 and SB3 did not specifically name the Cypress Basin, however the legislation does allow in unnamed basins, efforts to develop information on environmental needs and ways those needs can be met by a voluntary consensus-building process.

On November 16, 2010 the staff of the TCEQ held a stakeholder meeting to discuss the environmental flow process for the Cypress Basin. The meeting allowed stakeholders an opportunity to provide informal comments to staff on the environmental flows process. The agenda for the stakeholder meeting can be found here. The notice for the stakeholder meeting can be found here. A list of issues discussed at the meeting can be found here.

If you need more information on the environmental flows process for the Cypress Basin please contact Ron Ellis at (512) 239-1282 or roellis@tceq.texas.gov.
