|Public Review of Recreational-Survey Report||The TCEQ has completed a report* of its Recreational Use Attainability Analysis for Brazos River Basin streams and the TCEQ is now soliciting public comment to assist in making a recommendation. Public input is very important and will ensure we have local knowledge and the most accurate information to identify the appropriate recreational use of the water body. Once the comment period closes, TCEQ will use the comments to make the most informed recommendation for the recreational use category and criteria to be included in the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards. The TCEQ will not issue a formal response to the comments at this stage. There will be another comment period after the recommendation on recreational use has been published. Comments can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to:
P.O. Box 13087
Austin, TX 78711
*Note: The interview forms containing personal information are not posted with the report.
Instructions for submitting public comments can be found here. There will be a 30 day public comment period closing on April 29, 2016 for the following water bodies:
