Homeland Security Contact Information for Critical Infrastructure will be stored in the newly designed Water Quality Emergency Preparedness System (WQ EPS) starting in 2021.

Hurricane season officially begins on June 1, 2021 and ends on November 30, 2021. To ensure we are prepared for the season, the Water Quality Division (WQD) is asking for your assistance in updating records for each permitted wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) and Industrial wastewater (WW) discharge in Texas.

The WQD is very excited to announce that in the fall of 2021, all received updates on contact and facility information will be loaded in an automated electronic system called the Water Quality Emergency Preparedness System (WQ EPS).

We will be reaching out to you in the near future and keeping you up to date on the WQ EPS status. Please be sure that you submit the current information for staff that are submitted as your annual email contact to receive the WQ EPS annual email notices. The WQD plans to send out electronic notices with a pass code to use in order to update your individual facility information.

If you currently have an active wastewater permit with the TCEQ, please fill out and submit the applicable form(s) listed below as soon as possible. Generally, we request submittal within 30 days of receipt. However, if you are able to send the updates sooner it will be greatly appreciated. All data entry will be manual until the fall of 2021.
