NEW

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. SouthStar at Vintage Oaks, LLC, 1114 Lost Creek Boulevard, Suite 270, Austin, Texas 78746, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new TCEQ Permit No. WQ0015320001, to authorize the disposal of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 130,000 gallons per day via surface irrigation of 40 acres of public access open areas with trails. This permit will not authorize a discharge of pollutants into water in the state. TCEQ received this application on December 3, 2014.

The wastewater treatment facility and disposal site will be located in the Vintage Oaks at the Vineyard subdivision, 0.2 mile east of the intersection of Vintage Way and State Highway 46, partially within the City of New Braunfels's extraterritorial jurisdiction, in Comal County, Texas 78132. The wastewater treatment facility and disposal site will be located in the drainage basin of Dry Comal Creek in Segment No. 1811 of the Guadalupe 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. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the New Braunfels Public Library, 700 Common Street, New Braunfels, 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=29.77114&lng=-98.2618&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, September 10, 2015, at 7:00 PM
New Braunfels Civic Center
390 S. Seguin Avenue
New Braunfels, Texas 78130

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.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN to all interested persons within Hardin, Jasper, Newton and Tyler Counties, Texas:

That the Board of Directors of the Southeast Texas Groundwater Conservation District (“SETGCD”) will hold a public hearing and accept public comment on the proposed desired future conditions (“DFCs”) for the Gulf Coast Aquifer underlying the District, in accordance with Section 36.108(d-2) of the Texas Water Code. The purpose of the hearing is to provide interested members of the public the opportunity to appear and provide comments to the SETGCD related to the proposed DFCs.

The SETGCD is one of five groundwater conservation districts located wholly or partially within Groundwater Management Area 14 (“GMA 14”); the other districts in GMA 14 include Bluebonnet GCD, Brazoria GCD, Lower Trinity GCD, and Lone Star GCD. At the last GMA 14 joint planning meeting, held on June 24, 2015, the district representatives voted unanimously to approve the proposed DFCs, which have been distributed to the districts for a 90-day comment period and public hearing.

The proposed DFCs approved by the district representatives of GMA 14 are described in terms of acceptable drawdown levels for each subdivision of the Gulf Coast Aquifer, including the Chicot, Evangeline, Burkeville, and Jasper, for each county located within GMA 14, or in land surface subsidence, as applicable. The acceptable levels of drawdown for each subdivision of the aquifer are measured in terms of water level drawdowns over the proposed current planning cycle measured in feet from 2009 estimated water levels. For the SETGCD, the relevant proposed DFCs include the following:

Hardin County
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Chicot Aquifer should not exceed approximately 21 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Evangeline Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 27 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Burkeville Confining Unit should not exceed approximately: 29 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Jasper Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 89 feet after 61 years.

Jasper County
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Chicot Aquifer should not exceed approximately 23 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Evangeline Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 41 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Burkeville Confining Unit should not exceed approximately: 46 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Jasper Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 40 feet after 61 years.

Newton County
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Chicot Aquifer should not exceed approximately 35 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Evangeline Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 45 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Burkeville Confining Unit should not exceed approximately: 44 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Jasper Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 37 feet after 61 years.

Tyler County
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Chicot Aquifer should not exceed approximately 42 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Evangeline Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 35 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Burkeville Confining Unit should not exceed approximately: 30 feet after 61 years.
• From estimated year 2009 conditions, the average draw down of the Jasper Aquifer should not exceed approximately: 62 feet after 61 years.

This hearing will be held on September 10, 2015, beginning at 9:00 a.m., at the Jasper Newton Electric Co-op Community Room located at 812 S. Margaret Ave., Kirbyville, TX 75956.

Any person who desires to appear at the hearing and present comment or other information on the proposed DFCs may do so in person, by legal representative, or both.

NAVASOTA NORTH COUNTRY PEAKERS OPERATING COMPANY I, LLC
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-4946
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0566-AIR
Proposed Permit Nos. 121051 and PSDTX1418

APPLICATION.
Navasota North Country Peakers Operating Company I LLC, 403 Corporate Wood Dr, Magnolia, Texas 77354-2758, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of Proposed Air Quality Permit 121051 and Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Air Quality Permit PSDTX1418, which would authorize construction of an electrical power generating facility. Driving directions are as follows: from US 75 in Van Alstyne turn east onto Van Alstyne Parkway and go 0.6 miles then turn south onto Waco Street and go 0.1 miles then turn east onto Jefferson Street and go 0.2 miles then turn south onto Sherman Road and go 0.4 miles then turn east on Ballard Road and go 1.6 miles, Van Alstyne, Grayson County, Texas 75495. The proposed facility will emit the following air contaminants in a significant amount: volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 micrometers or less and 2.5 micrometers or less. In addition, the facility will emit the following air contaminants: sulfur dioxide, sulfuric acid, hazardous air pollutants, and lead.

A full PSD increment analysis was not required because the predicted impacts of all pollutants subject to PSD review were below the significant impact level for each pollutant.
The Executive Director has determined that the emissions 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 the control of these contaminants.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, draft permit, and the Executive Director’s preliminary determination summary and Executive Director’s air quality analysis, will be available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ Dallas/Fort Worth regional office, and at the Sherman Public Library, 421 North Travis Street, Sherman, Grayson County, Texas, and the Van Alstyne Public Library, 117 North Waco Street, Van Alstyne, Grayson County, Texas. The facility’s compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review at the TCEQ Dallas/Fort Worth Regional Office, 2309 Gravel Drive, Fort Worth, Texas.

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

10:00 a.m. – September 15, 2015

The hearing will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on July 10, 2015. In addition to these issues, the judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met.

FPLE FORNEY, LLC
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-4410
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0406-IWD
Permit No. WQ0004359000

APPLICATION.
FPLE Forney, LLC, 13770 West U.S. Highway 80, Forney, Texas 75126, which operates the Forney Energy Center, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to TPDES Permit No. WQ0004359000 to remove or increase ammonia limits at Outfall 001 and to add new Outfall 002 to allow discharge of stormwater from the South Stormwater Pond during wet weather. The existing permit authorizes the discharge of cooling tower blowdown and previously monitored effluent (low volume waste) at a daily average flow not to exceed 4,000,000 gallons per day via Outfall 001. The facility is located at 13770 West U.S. Highway 80, on the south side of U.S. Highway 80, 1.3 miles northwest of the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 740 and U.S. Highway 80, northwest of the City of Forney, Kaufman County, Texas 75126. The effluent is discharged via Outfall 001 directly to the East Fork Trinity River in Segment No. 0819 of the Trinity River Basin and via Outfall 002 to Buffalo Creek; thence to East Fork Trinity River in Segment No. 0819 of the Trinity River Basin. The unclassified receiving water, Buffalo Creek, has limited aquatic life use. The designated uses for Segment No. 0819 are primary contact recreation and intermediate aquatic life use. This notice is being amended to reflect the date of the contested case hearing, which has been changed from the previous date, August 26, 2015 to the current date of September 17, 2015.

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 the East Fork Trinity River, which has been identified as having intermediate 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 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 Ellen Brooks West Memorial Library, 800 Farm-to-Market Road 741 South, Forney, 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.

CLEAR LAKE CITY WATER AUTHORITY
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-4945
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0563-MWD
Permit No. WQ0010539001

APPLICATION.
Clear Lake City Water Authority, 900 Bay Area Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77058, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to TPDES Permit No. WQ0010539001 to authorize the establishment of two new additional outfalls and the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from Outfall 001 at an annual average flow not to exceed 10,000,000 gallons per day; from Outfall 002 at an annual average flow not to exceed 1,080,000 gallons per day and from Outfall 003 at an annual average flow not to exceed 1,080,000 gallons per day. The draft permit authorizes a combined annual average flow not to exceed 10,000,000 gallons per day from Outfalls 001, 002 and 003.

The plant site is located at 14210 Middlebrook Drive in Houston, approximately one mile northeast of the intersection of Bay Area Boulevard and Space Center Boulevard, southeast of Horsepen Bayou and adjacent to the northernmost part of the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Harris County, Texas 77058. The treated effluent is discharged via Outfall 001 to Horsepen Bayou, then to Armand Bayou Tidal; via proposed Outfall 002 to a pond on the west side of El Dorado Boulevard, then to Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) ditch B104-03-00, then to Horsepen Bayou, then to Armand Bayou Tidal; via proposed Outfall 003 to a series of ponds on the east side of El Dorado Boulevard, then to HCFCD ditch B104-02-00, then to Horsepen Bayou, then to Armand Bayou Tidal in Segment No. 1113 of the San Jacinto-Brazos Coastal Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are high aquatic use for Horsepen Bayou (tidal) and HCFCD ditch B104-03-00 (tidal), intermediate aquatic life use for a pond on the west side and a series of ponds on the east side of El Dorado Boulevard, and limited aquatic life use for HCFCD ditch B104-02-00 (above tidal). The designated uses for Segment No. 1113 are primary contact recreation and high aquatic life use. In accordance with 30 TAC § 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 the Horsepen Bayou (tidal), a pond on the west side of El Dorado Boulevard, HCFCD ditch B104-03-00 (tidal), a series of ponds on the east side of El Dorado Boulevard, and HCFCD ditch B104-02-00 (tidal), which have been identified as having high, intermediate, high, intermediate and high aquatic life uses, respectively. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The Executive Director has reviewed this action for consistency with the goals and policies of the Texas Coastal Management Program (CMP) in accordance with the regulations of the General Land Office and has determined that the action is consistent with the applicable CMP goals and policies.

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 Clear Lake City Water Authority Office, 900 Bay Area Boulevard, Houston, 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=29.5775&lng=-95.0922&zoom=13&type=r

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

10:00 a.m. – September 24, 2015
State Office of Administrative Hearings
The Preserve at North Loop
2020 North Loop West, Suite 111
Houston, Texas 77018

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 July 10, 2015. 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.

NASH FM 529, LLC
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-4942
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0663-MWD
Proposed Permit No. WQ0015264001

APPLICATION.
Nash FM 529, LLC, 10235 West Little York Road, Suite300, Houston, Texas 77040, a land developer, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015264001, to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at an annual average flow not to exceed 1,000,000 gallons per day.

The facility will be located approximately 2,000 feet southeast from the intersection of Beckendorff Road and Porter Road in Harris County, Texas 77493. The treated effluent will be discharged to a man-made ditch; thence to South Mayde Creek; thence to Buffalo Bayou Above Tidal in Segment No. 1014of the San Jacinto River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for both the man-made ditch and South Mayde Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1014 are limited aquatic life use 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. 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 downstream water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life use, 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 Katy Branch Library, 5414 Franz Road, Katy, 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.

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

10:00 a.m. – October 19, 2015
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 July 10, 2015. 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.
