DOS REPUBLICAS COAL PARTNERSHIP
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-2214
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0068-IWD
Permit No. WQ0003511000

APPLICATION.
Dos Republicas Coal Partnership, 5150 North Loop 1604 West, San Antonio, Texas 78249, which operates the Eagle Pass Mine, a sub-bituminous coal mine, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment with renewal to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0003511000 to add active mining acreage; add Outfalls 014M-020M to discharge stormwater and mine seepage from active mining areas; add Outfalls 001R, 003R, 004R, 006R-008R, and 014R-020R to discharge stormwater from post-mining areas; remove Outfalls 002, 005, and 009-013; allow for water in all ponds to be used for dust suppression; add Outfall 021 to discharge stormwater runoff from fueling areas, fuel storage areas, vehicle and equipment maintenance areas, truck washing stations, and coal handling and storage areas; and add Outfall 022M to discharge mine pit water from active mining areas and stormwater from inside the rail loop. The existing permit authorizes the discharge of mine seepage from active mining areas and stormwater at an intermittent and variable flow via Outfalls 001-013.

The facility is located on the northeast side of State Highway 1588, three miles northeast of the intersection of State Highway 1588 and U.S. Highway 277, and approximately five miles northeast of the City of Eagle Pass in Maverick County, Texas 77852. The effluent will be discharged via Outfalls 001M/R, 004M/R, 007M/R, 008M/R, 017M/R, 018M/R, 021, and 022M to unnamed tributaries, thence to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin; via Outfalls 003M/R, 006M/R, 014M/R, and 019M/R to unnamed ditches, thence to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin; via Outfalls 015M/R to an unnamed ditch, thence to an unnamed tributary, thence to Hediondo Creek, thence to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin; and via Outfalls 016M/R and 020M/R to Elm Creek, thence to Rio Grande Below Amistad Reservoir in Segment No. 2304 of the Rio Grande Basin. The designated uses for Segment No. 2304 are high aquatic life use, primary contact recreation, and public water supply.

In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (June 2010) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier 1 antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in Elm Creek, which has been identified as having high aquatic life use. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the parameters and limitations within which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the Maverick County Courthouse, 500 Quarry Street, Suite 2, Eagle Pass, Texas. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice. For the exact location, refer to the application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=28.818055&lng=-100.458611&zoom=13&type=r

The Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision was published on December 16 and 19, 2014. On January 15, 2015, the Applicant filed a request for direct referral to the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH). Therefore, the chief clerk has referred this application directly to SOAH for a hearing on whether the application complies with all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

3. THE TEXAS BOARD OF NURSING WILL MEET TO CONSIDER AND TAKE ACTION ON THE FOLLOWING:

A. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF VOCATIONAL NURSE LICENSE #182069

Issued to: CYNTHIA LEE LOPEZ

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Cynthia Lee Lopez poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about February 17, 2015, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to Respondent by the Texas Board of Nursing on July 17, 2014. Noncompliance is the result of Respondent’s failure to abstain from the use of controlled substances. Respondent produced a urine specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Amphetamines. Stipulation Number Nine (9) of the Agreed Order, dated July 17, 2014, states, in pertinent part:

“RESPONDENT SHALL abstain from...the use of controlled substances...”

On or about March 11, 2015, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to Respondent by the Texas Board of Nursing on July 17, 2014. Noncompliance is the result of Respondent’s failure to abstain from the consumption of alcohol. Respondent produced a urine specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Ethyl Glucuronide, which is a metabolite of Alcohol (ethanol). Stipulation Number Nine (9) of the Agreed Order, dated July 17, 2014, states, in pertinent part:

“RESPONDENT SHALL abstain from the consumption of alcohol...”

On or about March 13, 2015, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to Respondent by the Texas Board of Nursing on July 17, 2014. Noncompliance is the result of Respondent’s failure to abstain from the use of controlled substances. Respondent produced a urine specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Cocaine metabolites. Stipulation Number Nine (9) of the Agreed Order, dated July 17, 2014, states, in pertinent part:

“RESPONDENT SHALL abstain from...the use of controlled substances...”

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent’s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

B. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ADVANCED PRACTICE REGISTERED NURSE LICENSE #AP117225 WITH PRESCRIPTION AUTHORIZATION #8804, REGISTERED NURSE LICENSE #689426 AND LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSE LICENSE #155431

Issued to: CRISLYN K. MCDANIEL

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.455, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Crislyn K. McDaniel poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

During December 16, 2013 through February 5, 2015, while practicing as an Adult Nurse Practitioner/Owner of The NP Care Clinic, Rosharon, Texas, Respondent prescribed 9,309 dangerous cocktail drugs. Respondent’s practice fell below the minimum standard of care in that she continually prescribed these dangerous cocktail drugs without regard to therapeutic benefit. Respondent repeatedly prescribed the same strength, dose, and quantity of hydrocodone, Soma, and/or alprazolam to patients, indicating a failure to individually assess each patient and develop an appropriate treatment plan in response to each patient’s individual assessment.

Failure to develop a treatment plan that corresponds to a patient’s individual assessment is below the minimum standard of care. Additionally, prescribing the maximum doses of hydrocodone, Soma, and alprazolam in such large quantities falls below the minimum standard of care because when mixed together in such unsupported quantities these Central Nervous System (CNS) depressants have greater risks than therapeutic benefit. Respondent’s care is an imminent threat to public safety as her conduct puts patients at risk and falls below the minimum standard of care.

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.455, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent’s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

ABRAXAS CORPORATION
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-2478
TCEQ Docket No. 2013-2229-MWD
Proposed Permit No. WQ0015010001

APPLICATION.
Abraxas Corporation, 7921 Main Street, North Richland Hills, Texas 76182, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a new permit, proposed Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015010001 to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 20,000 gallons per day. The facility was previously permitted under TCEQ Permit No. WQ0011086001, which expired December 1, 2009.

The facility is located at 3301 Cattlebaron Road, approximately 0.9 mile north of the intersection of Cattlebaron and White Settlement Roads in Parker County, Texas 76108. The treated effluent will be discharged to a man-made pond; thence to an unnamed drainage; thence to an unnamed tributary; thence to Haywire Lake #2; thence to an unnamed tributary; thence to an unnamed impoundment; thence to Haywire Lake #1; thence to an unnamed tributary; thence to Silver Creek; thence to Lake Worth in Segment No. 0807 of the Trinity River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are limited aquatic life use for the man-made pond, no significant aquatic life use for the unnamed drainage and unnamed tributary and high aquatic life use for Haywire Lake #1, Haywire Lake #2 and the unnamed impoundment. The designated uses for Segment No. 0807 are high aquatic life use, public water supply and contact recreation. In accordance with Title 30 Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC) Section 307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (January 2003) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier 1 antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in Haywire Lake #1, Haywire Lake #2 or the unnamed impoundment, which have been identified as having high aquatic life uses. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the City of Willow Park Municipal Building, 516 Ranch House Road, Willow Park, Texas. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility’s general location is provided as a public courtesy and not part of the application or notice. For exact location, refer to application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=32.783195&lng=-97.548148&zoom=13&type=r

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a contested case hearing in this matter. A preliminary hearing will be held:

10:00 a.m. – April 8, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. The contested case hearing will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on February 10, 2015. In addition to these issues, the judge may consider additional issues if certain conditions are met.

The hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 26, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155. The hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests are withdrawn or denied.

To request to be a party in the contested case hearing, you must attend the preliminary hearing and show how you would be adversely affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the preliminary hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties at the preliminary hearing may participate in the contested case hearing.

INFORMATION.
If you need more information about the hearing process for this application, please call the Public Education Program, toll free, at 1 800 687 4040. General information about the TCEQ can be found at our web site at http://www.tceq.texas.gov/.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION
FOR WATER QUALITY TPDES PERMIT RENEWAL

PERMIT NO. WQ0002105000

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Lower Colorado River Authority, P.O. Box 220, Austin, Texas 78767, which operates Sam Seymour (Fayette Power Plant) a steam electric station, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to renew Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0002105000 which authorizes the discharge of once-through cooling water and previously monitored effluent at a daily average flow not to exceed 1,509,000,000 gallons per day via Outfall 001; cooling water drained from condensers and other cooling equipment during maintenance periods at a daily average flow not to exceed 2,500,000 gallons per day via Outfall 002; low volume waste, coal pile runoff, truck wash water, previously monitored effluent, and stormwater from the Coal Pile Runoff Pond on an intermittent and flow-variable basis via Outfall 003; and low volume waste, truck wash water, and stormwater from the Combustion Byproducts Landfill Pond on an intermittent and flow-variable basis via Outfall 004. The facility is located at 6549 Power Plant Road, adjacent to the south shore of Cedar Creek Reservoir, approximately two miles north of State Highway 71, and seven miles east of the City of La Grange, in Fayette County, Texas 78945-3714. The discharge route is from the plant site via Outfall 001 to Cedar Creek Reservoir, thence to Cedar Creek, thence to the Colorado River Below La Grange in Segment No. 1402 of the Colorado River Basin, and via Outfalls 002, 003, and 004 to unnamed tributaries, thence to Cedar Creek, thence to the Colorado River Below La Grange in Segment No. 1402 of the Colorado River Basin. The TCEQ received this application on June 4, 2014.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Fayette Public Library, 855 South Jefferson Street, La Grange, Texas. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice. For the exact location, refer to the application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=29.914742&lng=-96.753535&zoom=12&type=r.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments about this application. The TCEQ will hold a public meeting on this application because the Executive Director of the TCEQ has determined that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application. The purpose of the public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application.

The public meeting will consist of two parts, an Informal Discussion Period and a Formal Comment Period. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing under the Administrative Procedure Act. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public is encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the application and the Executive Director's preliminary decision, but these informal comments made during the informal period will not be considered by the Commissioners before reaching a decision on the permit, and no formal response will be made. During the Formal Comment Period, members of the public may state their formal comments into the official record. A written response to all timely, relevant and material, or significant formal comments will be prepared by the Executive Director and considered by the Commissioners before they reach a decision on the permit. A copy of the response will be sent to each person who submits a formal comment or who requests to be on the mailing list for this application and provides a mailing address. Only relevant and material issues raised during the formal comment period can be considered if a contested case hearing is granted.

The Public Meeting will be held:
Thursday, April 9, 2015, at 7:00 PM
Knights of Columbus Community Center
190 South Brown Street
La Grange, Texas 78945

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitted public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing list will also provide instructions for requesting a contested case hearing or reconsideration of the Executive Director’s decision. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court.

TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name; address; phone number; applicant’s name and proposed permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; and the statement “I/we request a contested case hearing.” If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group’s representative for receiving future correspondence; identify an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the proposed facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member’s location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are relevant to the group’s purpose.

Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

The Commission will only grant a contested case hearing on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commission’s decision on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues that were raised in timely filed comments that were not subsequently withdrawn.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. The Executive Director may issue final approval of the application unless a timely contested case hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed. If a timely hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed, the Executive Director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Director’s decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this specific application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. If you wish to be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below.

Citizens are encouraged to submit written comments anytime during the meeting or by mail before the meeting to the Office of the Chief Clerk, TCEQ, Mail Code MC-105, P.O.

5. the time period for asking or responding to questions; and

6. other matters that come to the attention of the presiding officer as requiring limitation.

B. Written Comments:

1. Written comments concerning the adoption of the Proposed Rule must be filed with the District electronically by email at mgcd@windstream.net, or by mail or hand-delivery at the District’s office at 802 Ninth Street, Wellington, Texas 79095.

SOAH Docket No. 582-15-2936
TCEQ Docket No. 2014-1720-MWD
Permit No. WQ0014477001

APPLICATION.
City of Liberty Hill, P.O. Box 1920, Liberty Hill, Texas 78642, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0014477001 to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from an annual average flow not to exceed 1,200,000 gallons per day to an annual average flow not to exceed 4,000,000 gallons per day.

The facility is located approximately 5,000 feet north of the South Fork San Gabriel River and 2,000 feet east of US Highway 183 in Williamson County, Texas 78641. The treated effluent is discharged to the South Fork San Gabriel River in Segment No. 1250 of the Brazos River Basin. The designated uses for Segment No. 1250 are high aquatic life use, public water supply, aquifer protection, and primary contact recreation. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) § 307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (June 2010) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier I antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in the South Fork San Gabriel River, which has been identified as having high aquatic life use. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility’s general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice. For the exact location, please refer to the application.
www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=30.631944&lng=- 97.861666&zoom=13&type=r

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 West 8th Street, Georgetown, Texas.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a preliminary hearing on this application at

10:00 a.m. – May 6, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to establish jurisdiction, name the parties, establish a procedural schedule for the remainder of the proceedings, provide an opportunity for settlement discussions, and address other matters as determined by the administrative law judge. The preliminary hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests are withdrawn or denied. The evidentiary phase of the contested case hearing, to be held at a later date, will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court and will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on March 10, 2015. In addition to these issues, the administrative law judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met.

The contested case hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 26, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155.
To participate in the contested case hearing as a party, you must attend the preliminary hearing and show you would be affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the preliminary hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate in the contested case hearing.

INFORMATION.
If you need more information about the hearing process for this application, please call the Public Education Program, toll free, at 1 800 687 4040. General information about the TCEQ can be found at our web site at http://www.tceq.texas.gov/.
