NOTICE OF HEARING
CITY OF ASHERTON
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-0425
TCEQ Docket No. 2014-0898-MWD
Permit No. WQ0013746001

APPLICATION.
City of Asherton, P.O. Box 450, Asherton, Texas 78827, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0013746001 to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from a daily average flow not to exceed 180,000 gallons per day to a daily average flow not to exceed 200,000 gallons per day.

The facility is located at 504 End Street, Asherton in Dimmit County, Texas 78827. The treated effluent is discharged to an unnamed tributary; thence to El Moro Creek; thence to Soldier Slough; thence to Nueces River Above Holland Dam in Segment No. 2105 of the Nueces River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed tributary and El Moro Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 2105 are high aquatic life use, public water supply and primary contact recreation. In accordance with Title 30 of the Texas Administration 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. This review has preliminarily determined that no water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses are present within the stream reach assessed; therefore, no Tier 2 degradation determination is required. No significant degradation of water quality is expected in water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses downstream, and 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 Asherton City Hall, 7935 State Highway 83, Asherton, 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 the exact location, refer to the application.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a formal contested case hearing at:

10:00 a.m. - November 5, 2014
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The contested case hearing will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. The hearing will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on September 19, 2014. In addition to these issues, the judge may consider additional issues if certain factors 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 have been withdrawn or denied.

To request to be a party, you must attend the hearing and show you would be adversely affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate at the 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 on our web site at http://www.tceq.texas.gov/.

Further information may also be obtained from the City of Asherton at the address stated above or by calling Mr. Robert H. Thonhoff, Jr., Thonhoff Consulting Engineers, Inc. at 512-328-6736.

Persons with disabilities who need special accommodations at the hearing should call the SOAH Docketing Department at 512-475-3445, at least one week prior to the hearing.

Meeting Site:

Department of Aging and Disability Services
John H. Winters Building
Public Hearing Room
701 West 51st St.
Austin, TX 78751

1. Opening Comments: Michael Vaclav, DDS, Medical Care Advisory Committee Chair.

2. Comments from the Associate Commissioner for Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP): Kay Ghahremani, Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).

3. Approval of August 2014 Meeting Minutes.

4. Announcement of Proposed Slate of Candidates for MCAC Executive Committee: Michael Vaclav, DDS.

5. *Presentation on the Transformation Waiver Overview: Lisa Kirsch, Chief Deputy Director, Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

HHSC staff will present an overview of current activities under the Texas Healthcare Transformation & Quality Improvement Program, otherwise known as the 1115 waiver. The overview will include an update on regional and local Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) projects and managed care expansion activities.

INFORMATIONAL ITEMS:

6. *Amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter D, §355.456, concerning Reimbursement Methodology.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes to amend §355.456, concerning Reimbursement Methodology.

This rule establishes the reimbursement methodology for the Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability or Related Conditions (ICF/IID) program administered by the Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS). HHSC, under its authority and responsibility to administer and implement rates, is proposing amendments to this rule to add a reimbursement methodology for services to individuals who have lived in a State-Supported Living Center (SSLC) for at least six months prior to referral to a non-state operated facility; have a level of need (LON) which includes a medical LON increase but not a LON of pervasive plus; and have a Resource Utilization Group (RUG-III) classification in the major RUG-III classification groups of Extensive Services, Rehabilitation, Special Care, or Clinically Complex.
**Judy Myers, HHSC

7. *Informal Dispute Resolution for Assisted Living Facilities.

HHSC proposes new rule Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 393, §393.2, Informal Dispute Resolution (IDR) for Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs).

As required by H.B. 33, in accordance with the Texas Government Code chapter 2008, HHSC engaged in Negotiated Rulemaking to improve the IDR process for ALFs. Currently, §393.1 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) dictates the IDR process for three facility types: nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities for individuals with an intellectual disability or related conditions (ICF/IID), and ALFs. Under the negotiated rulemaking committee's proposal, there are significant differences between the proposed IDR process for ALFs and the other two provider-types. Therefore, although the negotiated rulemaking committee initially attempted to incorporate the newly proposed ALF IDR process within §393.1, it subsequently determined that having two separate rules one that applies to nursing facilities and ICF/IID, and another that applies exclusively to ALFs was preferable. The purpose of this bifurcation is to avoid confusion as to which provisions affect ALFs and which provisions affect the other two provider types.

For §393.2, rule implementation by the proposed effective date is required by State law. There are no other alternatives. Additionally, most of the procedures outlined in the proposed new rule are currently in practice; however, some modifications were made to improve the process. The proposed amendments to §393.1 are necessary after the negotiated rulemaking committee's recommendations and also improve the current IDR process for nursing facilities and ICF/IID. There are no other issues or alternatives to consider.
** Allison Levee, HHSC

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULES/ACTION ITEMS:

8. *Transition Assistance Services.

HHSC, on behalf of the Department of Aging and Disabilities Services, proposes amendments, new rules, and repeals in Chapter 62 relating to transition assistance services and the repeal of a rule in Chapter 51 relating to transition assistance services in the Medically Dependent Children Program.
** Becky Hubik, DADS

9. *Home and Community-based Services (HCS) and Texas Home Living (TxHmL).

HHSC, on behalf of the Department of Aging and Disabilities Services (DADS), proposes amendments in Chapter 9, Subchapter D, governing the HCS Waiver Program, related to: (1) the provision of transition assistance services, pre-enrollment minor home modifications (MHMs) and pre-enrollment MHMs assessments; and (2) the role of the service coordinator in: assisting an individual to obtain a neurobehavioral or neuropsychological assessment and plan of care from a qualified professional for delivering cognitive rehabilitation therapy; and ensuring the plan of care includes a sufficient number of nursing units for the provider's registered nurse to perform an initial nursing assessment if an applicant or the legally authorized representative chooses a program provider to deliver certain services (e.g. nursing; residential support); and in Subchapter D and Subchapter N, related to (1) submitting requests to DADS for an informal review; and (2) actions DADS may take to resolve non-compliance by a program provider.
** Dana Williamson, DADS

10. *Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS).

HHSC, on behalf of the Department of Aging and Disabilities Services, proposes amendments, new rules, and a repeal to add cognitive rehabilitation therapy and employment assistance; establish definitions and requirements for employment services; clarify the requirements for repair/maintenance costs for adaptive aids; add recordkeeping and documentation requirements for non-delegated tasks; update service limits; specify the requirement for an initial and annual nursing assessment; add requirements for service back-up plans; replace a reference to the CLASS Program waiver with a reference to §41.108 that lists the CLASS Program services for which the consumer direction services (CDS) option is available; establish requirements for using a protective device and restraints and the use of a restraint in a behavior support plan; establish requirements for a case manager related to the provision of transition assistance services; clarify when a service provider may be a relative or guardian of the individual to whom the service provider is providing the service; and add references to Chapter 49 governing contracting for community services.
** Dana Williamson, DADS

11. *Reimbursement Methodology for School Health and Related Services (SHARS).

HHSC proposes to amend §355.8443, Reimbursement Methodology for School Health and Related Services (SHARS) by deleting obsolete language.
** Nadia Bobb, HHSC

12. *Community First Choice Services.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes to repeal the current division title (as the division contains no rules) and add a new division entitled Community First Choice, to implement a new state plan option to provide certain home and community based supports under Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 27.

The proposed new rules describe eligibility, benefits, and provider criteria for the CFC program.
** Laurie VanHoose, HHSC

13. *Reimbursement Methodology for Community First Choice Services.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes new §355.9090, concerning Reimbursement Methodology for Community First Choice, under Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter M, Division 7, to establish a reimbursement methodology for services provided under Community First Choice (CFC). This proposed new rule describes the reimbursement methodology for CFC services. CFC rates are established using pre-existing attendant and habilitation, consumer directed services, support consultation, financial management services agency, and emergency response services rates. Texas Government Code §533.0025(i) requires HHSC to "implement the most cost-effective option for the delivery of basic attendant and habilitation services for individuals with disabilities under the STAR+PLUS Medicaid managed care program that maximizes federal funding for the delivery of services for that program and other similar programs." CFC is available under federal law and lets states provide home and community-based attendant and habilitation services to Medicaid enrollees with disabilities under their State Plan.
** Pam McDonald, HHSC

14. *Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Centers.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes new Subchapter B, Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Center Services, including new rules §§363.201 to 363.217.

S.B. 492, 83rd Legislature, Regular Session, 2013, establishes Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Centers (PPECCs) in Texas. A PPECC provide non-residential, facility-based care as an alternative to private-duty nursing (PDN) for individuals under the age of 21 who are "medically dependent or technologically dependent" with complex medical needs. PDN services would be rendered before and/or after PPECC services are rendered, and the bill requires nursing services received in a PPECC to be prescribed by the client's primary care physician.

Policy staff determined PPECC services should be considered Medicaid State Plan services, requiring the creation of new payable provider type and enrollment processes for Texas Medicaid. PPECC services will be made available in traditional Medicaid and managed care (STAR, STAR+PLUS, STAR Health, and eventually STAR Kids).
** Laurie VanHoose, HHSC

15. *Reimbursement Methodology for Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Centers (PPECC).

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes new §355.9080, concerning Reimbursement Setting Methodology, under Title 1 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter M. Under this proposed rule, HHSC has the authority and responsibility to administer and implement rates, to establish a reimbursement methodology for Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Centers (PPECCs). A PPECC provides non-residential, facility-based care as an alternative to private-duty nursing (PDN) for individuals under the age of 21 with complex medical needs. HHSC is required to establish PPECCs as a separate Medicaid provider type and limit the reimbursement rate to no more than 70 percent of the average hourly PDN rate. HHSC may require a contracted provider to submit a cost report for any service provided through this program if necessary to obtain financial and statistical data upon which to base reimbursement; if HHSC requires a cost report, the provider must follow cost reporting and allowable and unallowable cost guidelines. HHSC may excuse a provider from the requirement to submit a cost report in certain circumstances.
** Laura Marble, HHSC

16. *Presumptive Medicaid Program.

The proposed rules implement federal requirements for presumptive eligibility for Medicaid. Under federal law, hospitals have the option to make presumptive eligibility determinations for pregnant women, children, parents and caretaker relatives, and former foster care children regardless of whether the state chooses to provide presumptive eligibility for these groups.

HHSC is proposing new rules that provide the eligibility requirements for individuals to qualify for presumptive eligibility, the requirements for providers making presumptive eligibility determinations, and HHSC responsibilities for oversight of providers making presumptive eligibility determinations. In order to align policies and procedures, HHSC is amending existing rules for qualified entities making presumptive eligibility determinations for pregnant women.
** Gina Perez, HHSC

17. *Texas Dual Eligibles Integrated Care Demonstration Project.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes to add a new subchapter entitled Texas Dual Eligibles Integrated Care Demonstration Project under Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 353, Subchapter L, to implement a new HHSC initiative for individuals dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare.

The proposed new rules describe member participation, member enrollment and disenrollment, participating providers, benefits, appeals and fair hearings, and accessibility of services.

Rider 51 (21), 83rd Regular Session, 2013, directed HHSC to implement the Dual Demonstration.

The Federal Coordinated Health Care Office ("Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office") is charged with supporting the coordination of Medicare and Medicaid to allow the two programs to work together more effectively to improve care and lower costs. The Financial Alignment Demonstration, also referred to as the Dual Demonstration, was created by Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office.
** Rhyne Simon, HHSC

NOTICE OF HEARING
NORTH TEXAS MUNICIPAL WATER DISTRICT
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-0690
TCEQ Docket No. 2014-0913-WR
Application No. 12151

APPLICATION.
North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD or Applicant), P.O. Box 2408, Wylie, Texas 75098, seeks a Water Use Permit pursuant to Texas Water Code §§ 11.121, 11.085, 11.042, and 11.046 and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Rules 30 Texas Administration Code (TAC) §§ 295.1, et seq.

North Texas Municipal Water District has applied for a Water Use Permit to construct and maintain a dam and reservoir (Lower Bois d'Arc Creek Reservoir) with a maximum normal operating capacity of 367,609 acre-feet of water and a surface area of 16,526 acres on Bois d'Arc Creek, tributary of the Red River, Red River Basin in Fannin County. Applicant seeks authorization to divert and use not to exceed 175,000 acre-feet of water per year from any point on the perimeter of the proposed reservoir at a maximum combine diversion rate of 365.15 cfs (163,889 gpm, 236 mgd) for municipal, industrial and agricultural purposes, including the right to use water within the reservoir for recreational purposes.
Applicant requests interbasin transfer authorization to use the water within its service area in the Red and Trinity River Basins, and within Fannin County in the Sulphur River Basin. NTMWD's service area is currently located within the following counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Fannin, Hopkins, Hunt, Kaufman, Rains and Rockwall.

The proposed Lower Bois d'Arc Creek Reservoir will be located 15.2 miles in a northeast direction from City of Bonham and 9.7 miles in a north-northwest direction from the Town of Honey Grove. Station 42+33 on the centerline of the proposed dam will be S 23.2677° E, 514 feet from the southeast corner of O.H.P. Wood Survey, Abstract No. 1177, in Fannin County, Texas, also being at 33.7180° N Latitude, 95.9822° W Longitude. The proposed dam will be located in the George W. King Original Survey, Abstract No. 604, the James Kerr Original Survey, Abstract No. 614, and the John Reynolds Original Survey, Abstract No. 931 in Fannin County, Texas. The proposed dam and reservoir will be located on the land of the Applicant, which will be acquired prior to construction.

Applicant also seeks authorization to reuse return flows generated from the diversion and use of water from the proposed reservoir. Until facilities are developed to reuse said water, return flows may be discharged to the Red, Sulphur, or Trinity River Basins.

Applicant indicates that diversions may overdraft the firm yield of the reservoir as part of a system operation with existing NTMWD supplies to achieve maximum conservation of limited water resources.

Information relating to the contract price of the water to be transferred; a statement of each general category of proposed use of the water to be transferred, and a detailed description of the proposed uses and users under each category; the cost of diverting, conveying, distributing, and supplying the water to, and treating the water for, the proposed users; and the projected effect on user rates and fees for each class of ratepayers can be obtained without cost by submitting a written request to Mr. Robert McCarthy at P.O. Box 2408, 505 east Brown Street, Wylie, Texas 75098, or by accessing the Applicant's website at http://www.ntmwd.com/bois_dArc.html .

The Executive Director has prepared a draft permit, which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the applicant may divert and impound this water.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
SOAH will conduct a preliminary hearing on this application at:

10:00 a.m. - November 10, 2014
Fannin County Court at Law Annex
210 South Main Street
Bonham, Texas 75418

The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to establish jurisdiction, name the parties, establish a procedural schedule for the remainder of the proceeding, allow an opportunity for settlement discussions, and to address other matters as determined by the judge. The evidentiary hearing phase of the proceeding will be similar to a civil trial in state district court.

The hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 11, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155.

The applicant is automatically a party in this hearing. If anyone else wishes to be a party to the hearing, he or she must attend the hearing and show how he or she would be adversely affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the hearing and any person may request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate at the 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 http://www.tceq.texas.gov/.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and 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 to issue the permit because it meets all rules and regulations.

PUBLIC COMMENT / PUBLIC MEETING. A public meeting will be held and 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 will be encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the permit application. The comments and questions submitted orally during the Informal Discussion Period will not be considered before a decision is reached on the permit application and no formal response will be made. Responses will be provided orally during the Informal Discussion Period. During the Formal Comment Period on the permit application, members of the public may state their formal comments orally into the official record. At the conclusion of the comment period, all formal comments will be considered before a decision is reached on the permit application. A written response to all formal comments will be prepared by
the Executive Director and will be sent to each person who submits a formal comment or who requested to be on the mailing list for this permit 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 on this permit application.

The TCEQ Executive Director has determined that the application meets all of the requirements of a Standard Permit authorized by 30 TAC § 116.611 which would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision to issue the registration because it meets all rules and regulations. The permit application, executive director's preliminary decision, and standard permit are available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ Houston regional office, and the Houston Public Library-Meyer Neighborhood Branch, 5005 West Bellfort, Houston, Harris County, Texas. The facility's compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review at the TCEQ Houston Regional Office, 5425 Polk Street, Suite H, Houston, Texas.

On September 22, 2014, 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.
