TCEQ Reporting Requirements for Regulated Entities

Due to COVID-19 and reduced staff in the TCEQ workplace, TCEQ may exercise administrative relief and enforcement discretion for various reporting requirements by regulated entities. See below and visit this page for updates.

Point Source Emissions Inventory Reporting:

Per 30 TAC Section 101.10(e), point source emissions inventories (EIs) are due March 31 or as directed by the commission.

The agency will consider additional enforcement discretion regarding this deadline as conditions warrant in response to COVID-19.

Please contact the Emissions Assessment Section helpline at 512-239-1773 or via email psinvent@tceq.texas.gov with any questions.

Air Permitting Public Notice Signage Requirements:

The executive director may approve variations from the requirements of Title 30 Texas Administrative Code Section 39.604 as allowed in 30 TAC Section 39.604(d) if the applicant has demonstrated that it is not practical to comply with the specific requirements of the subsection and alternative sign posting plans proposed by the applicant are at least as effective in providing notice to the public.

Stormwater General Permit Reporting:

Per Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) stormwater general permit requirements, the following reports are due March 31 of each year for many permittees based on the requirements of the applicable general permits.

  • Small (Phase II) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4, TXR04000) Annual Reports
  • Industrial Stormwater Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP, TXR05000) Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs)

Due to COVID-19 and reduced staff in the workplace, TCEQ will exercise enforcement discretion and consider the above reports submitted on or before April 30, 2020, as timely received. The agency will consider additional enforcement discretion regarding this deadline as conditions warrant in response to COVID-19. Please contact the Stormwater Team at 512-239-4671 or via email to SWGP@tceq.texas.gov with any questions.

TPDES Individual Permit Reporting:

Per Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) individual permit requirements, effluent monitoring data must be submitted to TCEQ at the frequency specified in the permit. Please continue to submit the discharge monitoring reports (DMRs) online using the NetDMR reporting system on the TCEQ website.

However, permittees who have obtained an electronic reporting waiver need to continue to submit DMRs via paper to the Compliance Monitoring Team of the TCEQ Enforcement Division (MC 224) on an approved DMR form (EPA No. 3320-1).

Due to COVID-19 and reduced staff in the workplace, TCEQ will exercise enforcement discretion and consider effluent monitoring reports for the months of February and March 2020 as received timely, if submitted on or before April 30, 2020. The agency will consider additional enforcement discretion regarding this deadline as conditions warrant in response to COVID-19.
