Issued to: CODY DANE BARNETT

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Cody Dane Barnett poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about January 13, 2015, and January 27, 2015, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to him by the Texas Board of Nursing on July 17, 2014. Noncompliance is the result of Respondent's failure to abstain from the use of controlled substances in that Respondent produced a specimen for a random urine drug screen that resulted positive for Marijuana Metabolite (THC). Stipulation number Seven (7) of the Agreed Order, dated July 17, 2014, states, in part:

“(7) PETITIONER SHALL abstain from the consumption of alcohol, Nubain, Stadol, Dalgan, Ultram, or other synthetic opiates, and/or the use of controlled substances, except as prescribed by a licensed practitioner for a legitimate purpose..."

On or about January 15, 2015, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse with Country Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Corsicana, Texas, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Eligibility Order issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on November 13, 2012, in that she produced a specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Ethyl Glucuronide (ETG) and Ethyl Sulfate (ETS), metabolites of alcohol (Ethanol). Noncompliance is the result of her failure to comply with Stipulation Number Six (6) of the Order, which reads, in pertinent part:

"PETITIONER SHALL abstain from the consumption of alcohol, Nubain, Stadol, Dalgan, Ultram, or other synthetic opiates, and/or the use of controlled substances, except as prescribed by a licensed practitioner for a legitimate purpose..."

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent’s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

C. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF REGISTERED NURSE LICENSE #816635 AND VOCATIONAL NURSE LICENSE #304095

Issued to: LISA ANN HOLINDE

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Lisa Ann Holinde poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about December 30, 2014, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on August 29, 2014. Noncompliance is the result of Respondent’s failure to initiate participation in the Texas Peer Assistance Program for Nurses (TPAPN). Stipulation Number Three (3) of the Agreed Order dated August 29, 2014, states:
"RESPONDENT SHALL comply with all requirements of the TPAPN participation
agreement during its term and SHALL keep her license(s) to practice nursing in the State of Texas current."

On or about December 30, 2014, Respondent was dismissed from TPAPN and referred to the Board for failing to return items necessary to initiate participation within the required time frame.

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent’s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.



D. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF REGISTERED NURSE LICENSE #802139 AND VOCATIONAL NURSE LICENSE #191392

Issued to: MICHELLE ANTOINETTE RICHARDSON

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.455, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Michelle Antoinette Richardson poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about November 23, 2012, through December 4, 2012, while employed as a Registered Nurse with Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Webster, Texas, Respondent withdrew Lorazepam, Hydromorphone and Morphine from the Medication Dispensing System for patients without a valid physician’s order, as follows:

Date Time Patient Medication Withdrawn (Qty) Order
11/23/12 1550 109415352 Lorazepam 2mg (1) None
11/23/12 1559 109414817 Hydromorphone 2mg (1) None

12/04/12 1642 109478392 Morphine Sulfate 10mg (1) None

Respondent's conduct was likely to injure the patients, in that the administration of medications without a valid physician's order could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions, and Respondent's conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.

On or about November 23, 2012, through December 4, 2012, while employed as a Registered Nurse with Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Webster, Texas, Respondent withdrew Lorazepam, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, and Morphine from the Medication Dispensing System for patients but failed to document or completely and accurately document the administration of the medications, including signs, symptoms, and responses to the medications in the patients Medication Administration Records and/or nurses notes, as follows:

Agenda: PROPOSITION 1 FUNDING RECOMMENDATIONS
In November 2014 Texas voters approved Proposition 1, a constitutional amendment that provides a new source of state funding for the construction, maintenance and rehabilitation of public roadways in Texas. Toll roads and transit projects are not eligible to receive funds. The Dallas-Fort Worth area is expected to receive about $367.6 million for projects this year, and transportation partners and local officials have worked diligently and with a sense of urgency to develop a list of potential projects to receive Proposition 1 funding. Projects must go to construction in 2015. This is a significant step toward meeting the unmet roadway funding needs in Texas, and input from the public is important. Staff will discuss the impact to the region, potential projects and an expedited schedule for decision-making.

Additional Information From: Jahnae Stout, jstout@nctcog.org, 817-608-2335
Agenda: PROPOSITION 1 FUNDING RECOMMENDATIONS
In November 2014 Texas voters approved Proposition 1, a constitutional amendment that provides a new source of state funding for the construction, maintenance and rehabilitation of public roadways in Texas. Toll roads and transit projects are not eligible to receive funds. The Dallas-Fort Worth area is expected to receive about $367.6 million for projects this year, and transportation partners and local officials have worked diligently and with a sense of urgency to develop a list of potential projects to receive Proposition 1 funding. Projects must go to construction in 2015. This is a significant step toward meeting the unmet roadway funding needs in Texas, and input from the public is important. Staff will discuss the impact to the region, potential projects and an expedited schedule for decision-making.

PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO THE FISCAL YEAR 2014 AND FISCAL YEAR 2015 UNIFIED PLANNING WORK PROGRAM (UPWP)
The UPWP for regional transportation planning provides a summary of the transportation and related air quality planning tasks conducted by the metropolitan planning organization. Modifications to the Fiscal Year 2014 and Fiscal Year 2015 UPWP will be presented for public review and comment.

Attention landowners in the former Priority Groundwater Management Areas in Dallam County.

These areas were ordered by the Texas Commission on Environmental quality to join the North Plains Groundwater Conservation District in 2012. You are invited to a Public Meeting concerning a proposed rule to assess fees based on groundwater production in those areas. Because residents voted on November 6, 2012 not to pay taxes to offset their share of the district’s expenses, the district is required by law to assess fees based on production volumes. District representatives will be discussing and accepting feedback on the New Draft Proposed Rules for assessing those fees. Stakeholder Meeting times and locations are as follows:

February 3 – Texline – Texline Community Center, 7pm

February 6 - Dalhart – Rita Blanca Coliseum, 7pm

February 10 – Dumas – Hampton Inn Meeting Room, 9am (Formal Hearing)

Draft Proposed Fee Rules are available for review at www.northplainsgcd.org

FOR WATER QUALITY TPDES
FOR INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER
NEW
PERMIT NO. WQ0005120000

APPLICATION. Crutcher Tie & Lumber, LLC, 307 North Louise Street, Suite B, Atlanta, Texas 75551, who proposes to operate Crutcher Tie & Lumber WWTP, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a new permit, Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0005120000. The permit would authorize the discharge of wet decking water and contact stormwater on an intermittent and flow-variable basis via Outfall 001. The facility is located at 4890 North State Highway 37, approximately one and a half miles north of the City of Winnsboro, Wood County, Texas 75494. The effluent is discharged via Outfall 001 to a manmade ditch; then to a tributary of Indian Creek; then to Indian Creek; then to Big Sandy Creek in Segment No. 0514 of the Sabine River Basin. The unclassified receiving waters have minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed ditch and tributary of Indian Creek, and high aquatic life use for Indian Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 0514 are high aquatic life use, primary contact, and public water supply.

In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code §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 Indian 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 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.

Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 7:00 PM
Winnsboro City Auditorium

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION
FOR WATER QUALITY TPDES PERMIT
FOR INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER

PERMIT NO. WQ0005120000

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Crutcher Tie & Lumber, LLC, 307 North Louise Street, Suite B, Atlanta, Texas 75551, which proposes to operate Crutcher Tie & Lumber WWTP, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0005120000 to authorize the discharge of wet decking water and contact stormwater on an intermittent and flow-variable basis via Outfall 001. This application was received by the TCEQ on March 13, 2014.

The facility is located at 4890 North State Highway 37, approximately four and a half miles south of the City of Winnsboro, in Wood County, Texas 75494. The effluent will be discharged to a manmade ditch; thence to a tributary of Indian Creek; thence to Indian Creek; thence to Big Sandy Creek in Segment No. 0514 of the Sabine River Basin. The unclassified receiving waters have minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed ditch and tributary of Indian Creek and high aquatic life use for Indian Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 0514 are high aquatic life use, primary contact recreation, and public water supply.

In accordance with Title 30 Texas Administrative Code Section 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 Indian 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 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 Bulletin Board at the Entrance of City Hall, 501 South Main Street, Winnsboro, 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. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=32.897822&lng=-95.323734&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 is to be held:
Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 7:00 PM
Winnsboro City Auditorium
900 Wheeler Drive
Winnsboro, Texas 75494

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.

Attention landowners in the former Priority Groundwater Management Areas in Dallam County.

These areas were ordered by the Texas Commission on Environmental quality to join the North Plains Groundwater Conservation District in 2012. You are invited to a Public Meeting concerning a proposed rule to assess fees based on groundwater production in those areas. Because residents voted on November 6, 2012 not to pay taxes to offset their share of the district’s expenses, the district is required by law to assess fees based on production volumes. District representatives will be discussing and accepting feedback on the New Draft Proposed Rules for assessing those fees. Stakeholder Meeting times and locations are as follows:

February 3 – Texline – Texline Community Center, 7pm

February 6 - Dalhart – Rita Blanca Coliseum, 7pm

February 10 – Dumas – Hampton Inn Meeting Room, 9am (Formal Hearing)

Draft Proposed Fee Rules are available for review at www.northplainsgcd.org

For More Information call: 806-935-6401

FOR TPDES PERMIT
FOR MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER
NEW

PROPOSED PERMIT NO. WQ0015225001

APPLICATION. KBARC, LLC, P.O. Box 3321, Bryan, Texas 77805, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a new permit, proposed Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015225001, to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 300,000 gallons per day. The facility will be located at 6932 Farm-to-Market Road 1179, Bryan in Brazos County, Texas 77808.

The treated effluent will be discharged to Steep Hollow Branch; then to Wickson Creek; then to Navasota River Below Lake Limestone in Segment No. 1209 of the Brazos River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for Steep Hollow Branch. The designated uses for Segment No. 1209 are primary contact recreation, public water supply 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 is 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 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. www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=30.698055&lng=-96.276944&zoom=13&type=r

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.

The Public Meeting is to be held:
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 7:00 PM
The Brazos Center
3232 Briarcrest Drive
Bryan, Texas 77802

Agenda: A quorum of the board may be present during the stakeholders meeting. Information regarding the meetings is below.

Attention landowners in the former Priority Groundwater Management Areas in Dallam County.

These areas were ordered by the Texas Commission on Environmental quality to join the North Plains Groundwater Conservation District in 2012. You are invited to a Public Meeting concerning a proposed rule to assess fees based on groundwater production in those areas. Because residents voted on November 6, 2012 not to pay taxes to offset their share of the district’s expenses, the district is required by law to assess fees based on production volumes. District representatives will be discussing and accepting feedback on the New Draft Proposed Rules for assessing those fees. Stakeholder Meeting times and locations are as follows:

February 3 – Texline – Texline Community Center, 7pm

February 6 - Dalhart – Rita Blanca Coliseum, 7pm

February 10 – Dumas – Hampton Inn Meeting Room, 9am (Formal Hearing)

Draft Proposed Fee Rules are available for review at www.northplainsgcd.org

5. the time period for asking or responding to questions; and

6. other matters that come to the attention of the presiding officer as requiring limitation.

B. Written Comments:

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 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. 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.
