Background: North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) staff, in cooperation with local governments and transportation agencies, has developed the FY2016 and FY2017 UPWP. This document identifies NCTCOG staff work activities to be performed between October 1, 2015, and September 30, 2017. The draft document was submitted to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) for review and comment on June 5, and information was also presented at a public meeting on June 8, 2015, with a copy of the document available on NCTCOG’s Web site. The Surface Transportation Technical Committee took action at its June 26, 2015, meeting to recommend approval of the document.

Eight thoroughfare interchanges are being built as part of the project, and staff is requesting the RTC participate as a funding partner. Staff will request a recommendation for approval of an RTC contribution of $7 million in Regional Toll Revenue funds.
Background: TxDOT received bid options to construct different configurations of the interchanges. The partnership included in Reference
Item 5 contains revenues from the cities, Tarrant County, and the RTC to build the ultimate intersection cross sections. The partnership will reduce financial risk to the project over time. The RTC share is approximately 25 percent.

Item Summary: Staff will seek Regional Transportation Council (RTC) approval of the repayment of the $30 million contingency loan from the Eastern Subregion to the Western Subregion for improvements on IH 35W. An accounting of the SH 360 Interchange Partnership will also be discussed.
Background: In June 2012, the Council approved a $30 million contingency loan for the construction of IH 35W in Tarrant County. These funds were taken temporarily from the SH 183/Midtown Express ($20 million) and Loop 9 ($10 million) projects. Since that time, the Texas Transportation Commission has awarded $600 million to the SH 183/Midtown project, which more than repays the
$20 million loan from that corridor. Staff proposes to complete the repayment on the Loop 9 project by funding $10 million in Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) from the west for eligible projects along the Loop 9 corridor in Dallas County. Staff is proposing that these funding decisions and the proposed CMAQ funding will serve as the repayment of the $30 million loan to the east. Ramifications of other partnerships, such as the SH 360 Interchange Partnership, will also be discussed. Additional details are provided in Reference Item 6.

Background: As development of the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) begins, staff is reviewing the RTC’s ongoing Air Quality and Management/Operations programs and projects. A determination is needed regarding which projects should be continued, which ones can be discontinued, and any new programs/projects of this nature that should be considered for inclusion in the new TIP. To this end, North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) staff has evaluated the list of existing management and operations, NCTCOG-implemented, and regional/air quality programs, and is recommending the extension of many of these programs into the FY2016-FY2018 timeframe. Reference Item 7.1 contains a recommended project list for consideration. At the meeting, staff will brief the Council on a proposed partnership involving Denton County Regional Toll Revenue and Proposition 1 funds that will provide an additional funding source for these projects. Opportunities for the county will be discussed. Additionally, early RTC action will be requested for the continuation of the Air Quality Marketing and Education Program through FY2016 as current funding will be expended before the end of the current year. Details regarding this effort are available in Electronic
Item 7.2. All other projects are slated for approval next month.

Background: One of the primary responsibilities of the Metropolitan Planning Organization is the development and maintenance of a metropolitan transportation plan (MTP). The last comprehensive update of the MTP occurred in 2011 with the adoption of Mobility 2035. Since then, Mobility 2035 has gone through two revisions, an update in 2013, and an amendment in 2014. Staff has initiated the development of a new MTP, Mobility 2040. This plan will reassess existing recommendations and include new demographics, financial forecasts, and planning initiatives. Development is ongoing and draft recommendations are expected later this year. The Regional Transportation Council is expected to take action on Mobility 2040 in March 2016.

Additional Information From: Jahnae Stout, 817-608-2335, jstout@nctcog.org
Agenda: 1. Call for Projects Recommendations: Federal Transit Administration Funding Programs

The North Central Texas Council of Governments issued a Call for Projects to competitively award Federal Transit Administration funding from two programs that support transportation services for seniors, persons with disabilities, and low-income individuals. Approximately $4.9 million in funding was available to award in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington and Denton-Lewisville Urbanized areas. Staff will present recommendations to award five projects the available federal funding.

2. Regional Air Quality and Management & Operations Program

As development of the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) begins, a determination will be made regarding which of the Regional Transportation Council’s (RTC) ongoing air quality and management/operations projects should be continued, which ones can be discontinued, and which programs/projects of this nature should be considered for inclusion in the new TIP. Staff will present efforts to extend both new and existing RTC air quality and management/operations projects and programs. Additional intersection improvement projects are being proposed for funding as well.

3. Review of Legacy Transportation Projects Funded, But Not Yet Implemented

Transportation partners, local governments and staff are reviewing a list of projects funded 10 or more years ago, but not yet implemented. The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a near-term list of funded transportation projects, and staff is developing the list of projects on which funding is expected to be spent between 2017 and 2020. The intent is to ensure high-priority, ready-to-proceed projects receive funding, and to determine if older, lower priority projects should be canceled. Staff will review the list of legacy projects and steps required of the implementing agencies for projects to continue to be funded.

Agenda: 1. Call for Projects Recommendations: Federal Transit Administration Funding Programs

The North Central Texas Council of Governments issued a Call for Projects to competitively award Federal Transit Administration funding from two programs that support transportation services for seniors, persons with disabilities, and low-income individuals. Approximately $4.9 million in funding was available to award in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington and Denton-Lewisville Urbanized areas. Staff will present recommendations to award five projects the available federal funding.

2. Regional Air Quality and Management & Operations Program

As development of the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) begins, a determination will be made regarding which of the Regional Transportation Council’s (RTC) ongoing air quality and management/operations projects should be continued, which ones can be discontinued, and which programs/projects of this nature should be considered for inclusion in the new TIP. Staff will present efforts to extend both new and existing RTC air quality and management/operations projects and programs. Additional intersection improvement projects are being proposed for funding as well.

3. Review of Legacy Transportation Projects Funded, But Not Yet Implemented

Transportation partners, local governments and staff are reviewing a list of projects funded 10 or more years ago, but not yet implemented. The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a near-term list of funded transportation projects, and staff is developing the list of projects on which funding is expected to be spent between 2017 and 2020. The intent is to ensure high-priority, ready-to-proceed projects receive funding, and to determine if older, lower priority projects should be canceled. Staff will review the list of legacy projects and steps required of the implementing agencies for projects to continue to be funded.

Agenda: 1. Call for Projects Recommendations: Federal Transit Administration Funding Programs

The North Central Texas Council of Governments issued a Call for Projects to competitively award Federal Transit Administration funding from two programs that support transportation services for seniors, persons with disabilities, and low-income individuals. Approximately $4.9 million in funding was available to award in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington and Denton-Lewisville Urbanized areas. Staff will present recommendations to award five projects the available federal funding.

2. Regional Air Quality and Management & Operations Program

As development of the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) begins, a determination will be made regarding which of the Regional Transportation Council’s (RTC) ongoing air quality and management/operations projects should be continued, which ones can be discontinued, and which programs/projects of this nature should be considered for inclusion in the new TIP. Staff will present efforts to extend both new and existing RTC air quality and management/operations projects and programs. Additional intersection improvement projects are being proposed for funding as well.

3. Review of Legacy Transportation Projects Funded, But Not Yet Implemented

Transportation partners, local governments and staff are reviewing a list of projects funded 10 or more years ago, but not yet implemented. The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a near-term list of funded transportation projects, and staff is developing the list of projects on which funding is expected to be spent between 2017 and 2020. The intent is to ensure high-priority, ready-to-proceed projects receive funding, and to determine if older, lower priority projects should be canceled. Staff will review the list of legacy projects and steps required of the implementing agencies for projects to continue to be funded.

Agenda: NOTICE OF HEARING
TIMBERWOOD DEVELOPMENT COMPANY, L.P.
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-4027
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0436-MWD
Proposed Permit No. WQ0015242001

APPLICATION.
Timberwood Development Company, L.P., 15315 San Pedro Avenue, San Antonio, Texas 78232, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a new permit, proposed Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit No. WQ0015242001, to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 15,600 gallons per day.

The facility will be located 740 feet north of the intersection of Slumber Pass and White Eagle Drive in Bexar County, Texas 78260. The treated effluent will be discharged to an unnamed tributary; thence to Mustang Creek; thence to Mud Creek; thence to Salado Creek in Segment No. 1910 of the San Antonio River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life for unnamed tributary; minimal aquatic life for Mustang Creek (intermittent); and limited aquatic life for Mustang Creek (intermittent with pools). The designated uses for Segment No. 1910 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 (January 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 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 Parman Branch Library, 20735 Wilderness Oak, San Antonio, 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.

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

10:00 a.m. – July 20, 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 May 12, 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.
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/.

Further information may also be obtained from Timberwood Development Company, L.P. at the address stated above or by calling Mr. Joe Wells, P.E., WWD Engineering at 512-288-2111.

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

PERMIT NO. WQ0013796001

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. 8 Mile Park, L.P., 6300 West Loop South, Suite 100, Bellaire, Texas 77401, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No.WQ0013796001 to authorize a reduction in the frequency of monitoring requirements for E.coli bacteria from five times per week to once per quarter. The existing permit authorizes the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 7,200 gallons per day. The TCEQ received this application on May 13, 2014.

The domestic wastewater treatment facility is located in the Autumn Shadows Subdivision on the south side of State Highway 35 approximately 570 feet east of the intersection of State High 35 and Farm-to-Market Road 1459, in Brazoria County, Texas 77480. The treated effluent is discharged to a drainage ditch; thence to an unnamed tributary; thence to a pond; thence to an unnamed tributary; thence to the San Bernard River Tidal in Segment No. 1301 of the Brazos-Colorado Costal Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life use for drainage ditch, unnamed tributaries and limited aquatic life use for the pond. The designated uses for Segment No. 1301 are high 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. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in San Bernard River Tidal 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 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 Angleton Library, 401 East Cedar, Angleton, 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=29.098333&lng=-95.688333&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 requested 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 is to be held:
Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at 7:00 PM
West Columbia Civic Center
516 E. Brazos Avenue
West Columbia, Texas 77486

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.

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.

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.

10:00 a.m. – August 18, 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 June 4, 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.
