Stakeholder Meeting on Petroleum Storage Tank Rulemaking

The TCEQ is conducting an informal stakeholder meeting to solicit input on a pending rulemaking project.
  • When May 23, 2017 from 01:30 PM to 02:30 PM (US/Central / UTC-500)
  • Where 12100 Park 35 Circle, Bldg E, Room 201S, Austin, TX
  • Contact Name
  • Contact Phone 512-239-7025
  • Add event to calendar iCal

This stakeholder meeting will seek informal input on Rule Project No. 2016-019-334-CE. The rulemaking will:

  • Update Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Chapter 334 to include federal rule revisions required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the State of Texas to reapply for state program approval.
  • Address minor rule revisions relating to the Fee on Delivery of Petroleum Products to reflect changes that were statutorily implemented in the Texas Water Code in 2015.

The pre-rulemaking meeting will be held on May 23, 2017, at 1:30 p.m., at TCEQ’s central office at 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building E, Room 201S, Austin, Texas.

All informal comments received at and following the meeting, will be reviewed. TCEQ staff is specifically soliciting comments on the management of potentially-contaminated water resulting from the cleanout of sumps and required hydrostatic testing (e.g., reuse, recycle, accumulate and dispose).

This is an opportunity to provide informal comments to staff prior to the formal rulemaking process. While staff will review all comments received, the TCEQ will not formally respond to any informal comments. A formal public rule hearing is tentatively planned for November 2017 following rule proposal by the commission.
