Applicant: City of Corpus Christi; Location: The project is located at the end of Gulfbreeze Boulevard in Corpus Christi, Nueces County, Texas. The site can be located on the U.S.G.S. quadrangle map entitled Corpus Christi, Texas. Approximate UTM Coordinates: Zone: 14; Easting: 659500; Northing: 3079850. CCC Project No.: 02-0032-F1; Description of Proposed Action: The applicant proposes to install geotubes offshore, place fill, and construct a wetland along a shoreline of Corpus Christi Bay. The purpose of the project is to prevent shoreline erosion adjacent to an existing groin and to create a salt marsh habitat along the bay shoreline. Three 22-foot-circumference geotubes with a total length of 460 feet would be installed approximately 100 feet offshore of the current shoreline to act as a breakwater. The geotubes would be parallel to the shoreline with the northernmost geotube having a total length of approximately 150 feet. The second geotube would be placed approximately 30 feet south of the first and would have a length of approximately 225 feet. The third geotube would be placed approximately 30 feet from the second and would have a length of approximately 85 feet. The geotubes would be filled with approximately 1.5 cubic yards of sand/silt per foot for a total of approximately 675 cubic yards. The fill material would come from upland borrow sites, would be greater than 60% sand and would be free of any contamination. Approximately 1.2 acres of open bay bottom along the existing shoreline would be filled with the same type of material. The width of the fill along the shoreline would vary from 0 to 80 feet with approximately 3.5 cubic yards of fill (1,500 cubic yards total) per foot to be placed in the 1.2 acres. Construction of this filled area would be in two or more phases. Approximately 5,500 square feet of the new shoreline area would be planted with Spartina alterniflora, with the remainder of the filled area allowed to re-vegetate naturally. After a sediment conditioning time of at least 60 days, the designated planting area along the shoreline would be planted with either single, pruned living sprigs of S. alterniflora obtained from city-owned wetlands adjacent to Rincon Channel, and/or from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If at least 70% canopy coverage is not achieved within one year following planting, the applicant would complete an additional planting effort to the original specification. A 240-foot-long boardwalk would be constructed parallel to the shoreline and across the filled area. At the south end of the boardwalk, an 80-foot-long perpendicular boardwalk would be constructed out into the water. Both boardwalks would be 4 feet wide and would provide access for the public to the planted salt marsh for birding and other nature-related activities. Type of Application: U.S.A.C.E. permit application #22570 is being evaluated under §10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 U.S.C.A. §403) and §404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C.A. §§125-1387).

Pursuant to §306(d)(14) of the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C.A. §§1451-1464), as amended, interested parties are invited to submit comments on whether a proposed action is or is not consistent with the Texas Coastal Management Program goals and policies and whether the action should be referred to the Coastal Coordination Council for review.

Further information for the applications listed above may be obtained from Ms. Diane P. Garcia, Council Secretary, Coastal Coordination Council, 1700 North Congress Avenue, Room 617, Austin, Texas 78701-1495, or diane.garcia@glo.state.tx.us.

Texas Education Agency

Request for Proposals Concerning Mathematics Diagnostic Assessments for Grades 5-9 and a Web-Based Test Administration Interface

Eligible Proposers. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is requesting proposals under Request for Proposals #701-02-015 from nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, private companies, and regional education service centers to provide mathematics diagnostic assessments for Grades 5-9 and a web-based test administration interface. Historically underutilized businesses (HUBs) are encouraged to submit proposals or combine with another proposer to serve as subcontractors.

Description. The objective of this project is to acquire and implement a Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)-based mathematics skills diagnosis system for Grades 5-9. The ideal system will be targeted to students entering Grades 5-9 and may combine a series of already available diagnostic assessments (or a bank of test questions and a series of preconfigured, beginning of the year assessments developed from the item bank) with a web interface that allows teachers to access and administer the assessments as well as configure and administer their own additional assessments. The primary user of this tool will be the individual classroom teacher in Grades 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 who will conduct a group- administered diagnostic assessment at the beginning of the school year and (if possible) more targeted versions of assessment at multiple times throughout the year.

Dates of Project. All services and activities related to this proposal will be conducted within specified dates. Proposers should plan for a starting date of no earlier than April 15, 2002, and an ending date of no later than August 29, 2003, with the primary development and implementation work transpiring prior to August 19, 2002.

Project Amount. The contractor(s) selected will receive a maximum of $1 million during the contract period. Subsequent project funding will be based on satisfactory progress of first-year objectives and activities and on general budget approval by the State Board of Education, the commissioner of education, and the state legislature.

Selection Criteria. Proposals will be selected based on the ability of each proposer to carry out all requirements contained in this RFP. The TEA will base its selection on, among other things, the demonstrated competence and qualifications of the proposer and upon the reasonableness of the proposed fee. The TEA reserves the right to select from the highest ranking proposals those that address all requirements in the RFP and that are most advantageous to the project.

The TEA is not obligated to execute a resulting contract, provide funds, or endorse any proposal submitted in response to this RFP. This RFP does not commit TEA to pay any costs incurred before a contract is executed. The issuance of this RFP does not obligate TEA to award a contract or pay any costs incurred in preparing a response.

Requesting the Proposal. A complete copy of RFP #701-02-015 may be obtained by writing the: Document Control Center, Room 6-108, Texas Education Agency, William B. Travis Building, 1701 N. Congress Avenue, Austin, Texas 78701; by calling (512) 463-9304; by faxing (512) 463-9811; or by e-mailing dcc@tea.state.tx.us. Please refer to the RFP number in your request. Provide your name, complete mailing address, and telephone number including area code.

Further Information. For clarifying information about this RFP, contact Rose Duarte, Office of Statewide Initiatives, Texas Education Agency, (512) 463-9027.

Deadline for Receipt of Proposals. Proposals must be received in the Document Control Center of the TEA by 5:00 p.m. (Central Time), Tuesday, April 2, 2002, to be considered.

Request for Proposals

Pursuant to Chapter 2254, Subchapter B, Texas Government Code, the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and the Comptroller of Public Accounts (Comptroller) announce this Request for Proposals (RFP #02-184) for provision of consulting services. This RFP is issued to solicit proposals from qualified consultants to assist HHSC and Comptroller in reviewing programs administered by various state agencies in order to maximize their receipt of federal revenue.

The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) is providing an opportunity for public comment and a notice and comment hearing (hearing) on the draft site-wide General Operating Permit (GOP) Number 516.

The draft GOP will serve as a renewal of, and is based on, the site-wide GOP that currently resides in 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 122, Subchapter F. The draft GOP also contains revisions to codified applicable requirements and new applicable requirements (i.e., minor new source review) as a result of amended regulations or the adoption of new regulations. Once the draft GOP is issued by the executive director, the GOP residing in 30 TAC Chapter 122, Subchapter F will be proposed for repeal.

During the comment period, any person who may be affected by the emission of air pollutants from emission units that may be authorized to operate under the GOP is entitled to request, in writing, a hearing on the draft GOP. If requested, a hearing will be held in Austin on March 25, 2002 at 10:00 a.m. in Room 131E of TNRCC, Building C, located at 12100 Park 35 Circle.

Notices mailed during the period February 8, 2002 through February 12, 2001.

TNRCC Internal Control No. 01262001-D02. Tryon Road Water Supply Corporation (Petitioner) has filed a supplemental petition with the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) to clarify that the previously noticed petition for conversion of Tryon Road Water Supply Corporation to Tryon Road Special Utility District will include the transfer of the sewer Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) No. 20883 from Tryon Road Water Supply Corporation to Tryon Road Special Utility District. Tryon Road Special Utility District's business address will be Rt. 2, Box 239, Longview, Texas 75605. The supplemental petition was filed pursuant to Chapters 13 and 65 of the Texas Water Code; 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapters 291 and 293; and the procedural rules of the TNRCC. The previous notice was published on August 9, 2001 and August 16, 2001. The supplemental petition also clarifies the powers of Tryon Road Water Supply Corporation under the provisions of Article XVI, Section 59, Texas Constitution, and Chapter 65 of the Texas Water Code, as amended. In addition to the purposes and powers set forth in the previous notice, the District shall have the purposes and powers provided by Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) No. 20883, which shall be transferred as provided in Chapter 13 of the Texas Water Code, as amended. Presently, Tryon Road Water Supply Corporation provides the facilities and services necessary to collect, transport, process, store, treat and dispose of sewage and wastewater, and provides such services for compensation to members. The nature of the services proposed to be provided by Tryon Road Special Utility District, in addition to those in the previous notice, shall include the power to build, operate, and maintain facilities to collect, transport, process, store, treat and dispose of sewage and wastewater, and to provide such services for compensation to generators of wastewater. It is anticipated that conversion will have no adverse effects on the rates and services provided to customers. The proposed District is located in Gregg and Harrison Counties and will contain approximately 12,418 acres. The territory to be included within the proposed District includes all of the singly certified service area covered by CCN Nos. 10362 and 20883 and is more precisely set forth in the boundary description included in the Petition and the previous notice. The boundary description and a vicinity map depicting the proposed District are also available for review at the offices of Tryon Road Water Supply Corporation. CCN Nos. 10362 and 20883 will be transferred to the District after a positive confirmation election. The TNRCC may grant a contested case hearing on the petition, as revised, if a written hearing request is filed within 30 days after the newspaper publication of this notice.

The TNRCC may grant a contested case hearing on these petitions if a written hearing request is filed within 30 days after the newspaper publication of the notice. To request a contested case hearing, you must submit the following: (1) your name (or for a group or association, an official representative), mailing address, daytime phone number, and fax number, if any; (2) the name of the petitioner and the TNRCC Internal Control Number; (3) the statement "I/we request a contested case hearing"; (4) a brief description of how you would be affected by the petition in a way not common to the general public; and (5) the location of your property relative to the proposed district's boundaries. You may also submit your proposed adjustments to the petition which would satisfy your concerns. Requests for a contested case hearing must be submitted in writing to the Office of the Chief Clerk at the address provided in the information section below.

The Executive Director may approve the petitions unless a written request for a contested case hearing is filed within 30 days after the newspaper publication of the notice. If a hearing request is filed, the Executive Director will not approve the petition and will forward the petition and hearing request to the TNRCC Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. If a contested case hearing is held, it will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court.

Written hearing requests should be submitted to the Office of the Chief Clerk, MC 105, TNRCC, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087. For information concerning the hearing process, please contact the Public Interest Counsel, MC 103, the same address.

Application of Central Power and Light Company for a Declaratory Order

Notice is given to the public of Central Power and Light Company's (CP&L's) filing with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (commission) of a request for a declaratory order.

Docket Title and Number: Application of Central Power and Light Company for Declaratory Order, Docket Number 25395.

The Application: On February 1, 2002, CP&L filed a request for a declaratory order. CP&L indicated that Koch Petroleum Group (now known as Flint Hills Resources, LP), filed a petition on December 19, 2001 in Travis County District Court naming both CP&L and the commission as defendants. CP&L asserted that Flint Hills seeks a determination by the court that Flint Hills' plan to jointly construct, own and operate a 138 kV transmission line with Citgo Refining and Chemicals, Inc. is permissible under the Public Utility Regulatory Act, Texas Utilities Code Annotated (Vernon 1998 and Supplement 2002) (PURA).

CP&L filed a petition for a declaratory order "seeking clarification from the commission concerning the obligations of transmission and distribution facilities to construct transmission system upgrades and to provide transmission service to power generation companies that attempt to market directly to end use customers through the construction of alternate electric transmission systems such as that proposed by Flint Hills and Citgo." Specifically, CP&L requested that the commission determine that:

(1) The transmission line which Flint Hills and Citgo propose to jointly construct and operate is unlawful under PURA and in violation of CP&L's certificated service area rights absent the issuance of a certificate of convenience and necessity; and

(2) Alternatively, if the commission determines that the Flint Hills and Citgo transmission line is not unlawful under PURA and in violation of CP&L's certificated service area rights, that the commission take appropriate action to protect the transmission and distribution utilities and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas transmission customers from increased costs.

Persons who wish to intervene in the proceeding or comment upon the action sought should contact the Public Utility Commission of Texas, P.O. Box 13326, Austin, Texas 78711-3326, or call the commission's Customer Protection Division at (512) 936-7120 or (888) 782-8477.
