Notice of Public Hearing and Comment on a Proposed New Subchapter in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 311

Proposed new subchapter in 30 TAC, Chapter 311 for sand mining facilities in the San Jacinto River Watershed

The proposed rulemaking establishes a new subchapter that defines the San Jacinto River watershed based on petitions. It requires the Executive Director to develop a guidance document of best management practices for sand mining facilities. And for operators of those facilities in the watershed to utilize the guidance at their site.

The rule also requires sand mining facility operators to prepare and submit a final stabilization report for TCEQ review and implement it when approved, both, prior to operations terminating at the site or portion(s) of the site.
