Oil and Gas Wastewater Stakeholder Group

TCEQ's activities and 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 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 EPA to TCEQ the bill also transfers state permitting authority for these discharges from the Railroad Commission of Texas to TCEQ.
