Oil and Gas Wastewater Stakeholder Group

TCEQ's schedule for implementing House Bill 2771, 86th Legislature 2019, relating to delegation of wastewater permits for oil and gas facilities.

House Bill (HB) 2771, 86th Texas Legislature, 2019, requires that the TCEQ submit a delegation request by September 1, 2021 to seek authority from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue federal permits for produced water, hydrostatic test water, and gas plant effluent discharges resulting from certain oil and gas activities into water in the state. Upon delegation of authority from the EPA to the TCEQ the bill transfers state permitting authority for these discharges from the Railroad Commission of Texas to TCEQ.
