The proposed rulemaking would implement House Bill (HB) 252, HB 1973, and Senate Bill 1086, §1 and §2, 83rd Legislature, 2013, and HB 1814, §2, 82nd Legislature, relating to requiring retail public utilities and the system(s) that provides the utility's wholesale water service to provide the commission a report on the status of their water supply once the supply is less than 180 days. The proposed rulemaking would also develop standards for municipalities to require a utility to maintain a sufficient water flow and pressure to fire hydrants in a residential area or an industrial district located in the municipality or the municipality's extraterritorial jurisdiction for purposes of emergency fire suppression. The proposed rulemaking additionally proposes non-substantive changes to update citations and conform with Texas Register requirements.
