EMERGENCY ORDERS
Item 8 Docket No. 2015-0219-WR.
Consideration of whether to affirm, modify, or set aside the Emergency Order issued by the Executive Director (ED) on February 18, 2015, under Tex. Water Code §§ 11.148 and 5.506 to the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). The ED's Emergency Order grants LCRA's request for an emergency order by partially suspending a requirement of its 2010 Water Management Plan (WMP), Permit No. 5838 to maintain a minimum streamflow of 500 cubic feet per second (cfs) for six weeks in between March and May from Bastrop to Eagle Lake for the Blue Sucker. Specifically, the Emergency Order reduces the minimum streamflow requirement to 300 cfs. Without the Emergency Order this requirement could necessitate a release of stored water of approximately 21,000 acre feet (AF) by the end of May 2015. By granting LCRA's requested relief, the Emergency Order will prevent approximately 17,000 AF from being released from Lakes Buchanan and Travis. LCRA has the right to divert and use up to 1.5 million acre feet from Lakes Buchanan and Travis, in Travis, Llano, and Burnet Counties, Texas, under Certificates of Adjudication Nos. 14-5478 and 14-5482. These certificates require LCRA to develop the WMP, Permit No. 5838, which provides how LCRA makes water available from these lakes to help meet "firm" water customer needs, downstream interruptible irrigation demands, and environmental flow needs of Matagorda Bay and the Lower Colorado River. (Kathy Alexander, Ruth Takeda)

Item 9 Docket No. 2015-0220-WR.
Consideration of whether to affirm, modify, or set aside an Emergency Order issued by the Executive Director (ED) on February 18, 2015, under Tex. Water Code § 11.139, to the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) to amend its 2010 Water Management Plan (WMP), Permit No. 5838. The Emergency Order grants LCRA’s request to temporarily change the process required in its 2010 WMP for curtailment of interruptible stored water at higher levels of combined storage in Lakes Buchanan and Travis. LCRA has the right to divert and use up to 1.5 million acre feet from Lakes Buchanan and Travis, in Travis, Llano, and Burnet Counties, Texas, under Certificates of Adjudication Nos. 14-5478 and 14-5482. These certificates require LCRA to develop the WMP, Permit No. 5838, which provides how LCRA makes water available from these lakes to help meet “firm” water customer needs, downstream interruptible irrigation demands, and environmental flow needs of Matagorda Bay and the Lower Colorado River. The WMP also provides how LCRA will manage and curtail supplies from the lakes during times of drought including through a repeat of the Drought of Record. Due to the drought and continuing low inflows, on December 23, 2014, LCRA requested an emergency order suspending any obligation LCRA might have under the 2010 WMP to release interruptible stored water to customers in the Gulf Coast, Lakeside, and Pierce Ranch irrigation operations. The ED granted LCRA’s requested relief by issuing an emergency order that expires on June 18, 2015, but may be renewed one time for no more than 60 days. (Kathy Alexander, Robin Smith)

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
AND
NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION
FOR WATER QUALITY TPDES PERMIT AMENDMENT

TPDES PERMIT NO. WQ0013321001

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. City of Wimberley, P.O. Box 2027, Wimberley, Texas 78676, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Permit No. WQ0013321001 to: change the method of disposal from land application to discharge into water in the state; and increase the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from a daily average flow not to exceed 50,000 gallons per day to a daily average flow not to exceed 75,000 gallons per day. The current permit authorizes the disposal of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 15,000 gallons per day via subsurface low pressure dosing drainfields of 94,500 square feet of non-public access land in the interim phase and 50,000 gallons per day via surface irrigation of 19 acres of non-public access land in the final phase. TCEQ received this application on May 13, 2014.

The facility is located approximately one mile northeast of the intersection of Ranch-to-Market Road 12 and Ranch-to-Market Road 3237 in Hays County, Texas 78676. The existing wastewater treatment facility and disposal site are located approximately 500 feet to the west of the proposed facility within the same property. The treated effluent will be discharged to Deer Creek; thence to the Upper Blanco River in Segment No. 1813 of the Guadalupe River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for Deer Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1813 are exceptional 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 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 Upper Blanco River, which has been identified as having exceptional 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 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 application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Wimberley City Hall, Office of the City Secretary, 221 Stillwater, Wimberley, 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=30.003888&lng=-98.083333&zoom=13&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, March 12, 2015 at 7:00 PM
Wimberley Community Center
14068 Ranch Road 12
Wimberley, Texas 78676

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.

AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION. 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. Box 13087, Austin, TX 78711-3087 or electronically at www.tceq.texas.gov.us/about/comments.html.

APPLICATION.
Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority, 933 East Court Street, Seguin, Texas 78155, Applicant, seeks a Water Use Permit pursuant to Texas Water Code (TWC) § 11.121 and § 11.085, and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Rules Title 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §§ 295.1, et seq.

Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority seeks authorization to divert and use not to exceed 75,000 acre-feet of water per year from the unappropriated flows of the Guadalupe River, Guadalupe River Basin, in Gonzales County, at a maximum diversion rate of 500 cfs (224,415.588 gpm) for use for municipal and industrial purposes within GBRA’s statutory district which consists of Hays, Comal, Guadalupe, Caldwell, Gonzales, DeWitt, Victoria, Kendall, Refugio, and Calhoun Counties in the San Antonio, Colorado, and Lavaca River Basins, and the Colorado-Lavaca, Lavaca-Guadalupe, and San Antonio-Nueces Coastal Basins. Applicant also seeks authorization to construct one or more off-channel reservoirs in Gonzales County with a combined maximum storage capacity of 125,000 acre-feet, and to store water in the off-channel reservoir(s) for subsequent diversion and use for municipal and industrial purposes within GBRA’s statutory district. GBRA further requests an exempt interbasin transfer of the diverted water to the portions of the San Antonio River Basin, Colorado River Basin, Lavaca River Basin, Colorado-Lavaca Coastal Basin, Lavaca-Guadalupe Coastal Basin, and the San Antonio-Nueces Coastal Basin located within Hays, Comal, Guadalupe, Caldwell, Gonzales, DeWitt, Victoria, Kendall, Refugio, and Calhoun Counties.

The proposed diversion segment will be located in zip code 78629 between the following two points:

1. Upper limit of the diversion segment is located at Latitude 29.4907ºN, Longitude 97.4709ºW, also bearing N38ºW, 4,800 feet from the northwest corner of the Jose Maria Salinas Survey, Abstract No. 59, Gonzales County, Texas.

The draft permit, if granted, would include special conditions requiring streamflow restrictions. The application, technical memoranda, and Executive Director’s draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the Office of the Chief Clerk, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building F, Austin, Texas 78753.

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.

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.

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