In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) objected to temperature limits that exceeded the segment criteria for Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permits. The TCEQ negotiated with the EPA and reached an agreement to develop screening procedures for temperature. At the same time, and over a more extended time frame, the TCEQ will evaluate existing temperature criteria.
