HB 2771, (86th Legislature, effective September 1, 2019), requires TCEQ to submit a delegation request by September 1, 2021 to seek authority from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue permits for such discharges into water in the state resulting from certain oil and gas activities under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program.

The bill also transfers permitting authority for these discharges from the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) to TCEQ upon delegation of authority from EPA to TCEQ.
