NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
FOR AN AIR QUALITY PERMIT

PROPOSED PERMIT NUMBERS: 111724 and PSDTX1374

APPLICATION. Indeck Wharton, LLC, 600 N Buffalo Grove Rd Ste 300, Buffalo Grove, IL 600-89-2432, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of Proposed Air Quality Permit 111724 and Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Air Quality Permit PSDTX1374, which would authorize construction of the Indeck Wharton Energy Center at the west side of State Route 71, 3350 feet south of the intersection of Route 71 and County 424 in Danevang, about 0.50 mile south of the center of Danevang, Wharton County, Texas 77432. 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. www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=29.046944&lng=-96.213611&zoom=13&type=r. For exact location, refer to the application. The proposed facility will emit the following air contaminants in a significant amount: nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 micros or less and 2.5 microns or less, and volatile organic compounds. In addition, the facility will emit the following air contaminants: hazardous air pollutants.

The degree of PSD increment predicted to be consumed by the proposed facility and other increment-consuming sources in the area is as follows:

Nitrogen Dioxide
Maximum
Averaging Time Maximum Increment
Consumed (µg/m³) Allowable Increment
(µg/m³)
Annual 6.3 25

The executive director has determined that the emission of air contaminants from the proposed facility which are subject to PSD review will not violate any state or federal air quality regulations and will not have any significant adverse impact on soils, vegetation, or visibility. All air contaminants have been evaluated, and "best available control technology" will be used for these contaminants.

The 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.

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.

FOR WATER QUALITY LAND APPLICATION PERMIT
FOR MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER
NEW

PERMIT NO. WQ0015219001

APPLICATION. Trio Residential Developers, Inc., 12345 Alameda Trace Circle, Apt 522, Austin, Texas 78272, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a new permit, proposed Permit No. WQ0015219001, to authorize the disposal of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 140,000 gallons per day via surface irrigation of 40.5 acres of public access land. This permit would not authorize a discharge of pollutants into waters in the State. The wastewater treatment facility and disposal site will be located along the north right-of-way of Ammann Road at its intersection with Rolling Acres Trail in Kendall County, Texas 78006. The wastewater treatment facility and disposal site will be located in the drainage basin of Upper Cibolo Creek in Segment No. 1908 of the San Antonio River Basin.

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. 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, please refer to the application.

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 Procedures Act. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public will be encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the permit application, to which responses will be provided orally during the Informal Discussion Period. 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. During the Formal Comment Period on the permit application, members of the public may state their formal comments orally into the official record. A written response to all timely, relevant and material, or significant comments will be prepared by the Executive Director. All formal comments will be considered before a decision is reached on the permit application. A copy of the written response 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.
