Requirements for Content of Comments

The Draft 2016 Integrated Report evaluates data primarily from December 1, 2007 through November 30, 2014. Data to support public comments must be submitted in summary format and have been collected under a TCEQ-approved quality assurance project plan or equivalent quality system to ensure the data are of known and appropriate quality for this use.
