CITY OF LIBERTY HILL
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-2936
TCEQ Docket No. 2014-1720-MWD
Permit No. WQ0014477001

APPLICATION.
City of Liberty Hill, P.O. Box 1920, Liberty Hill, Texas 78642, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0014477001 to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from an annual average flow not to exceed 1,200,000 gallons per day to an annual average flow not to exceed 4,000,000 gallons per day.

The facility is located approximately 5,000 feet north of the South Fork San Gabriel River and 2,000 feet east of US Highway 183 in Williamson County, Texas 78641. The treated effluent is discharged to the South Fork San Gabriel River in Segment No. 1250 of the Brazos River Basin. The designated uses for Segment No. 1250 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 (June 2010) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier I 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 South Fork San Gabriel River, 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. 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, please refer to the application.
www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=30.631944&lng=- 97.861666&zoom=13&type=r

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 Georgetown Public Library, 402 West 8th Street, Georgetown, Texas.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a preliminary hearing on this application at

10:00 a.m. – May 6, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to establish jurisdiction, name the parties, establish a procedural schedule for the remainder of the proceedings, provide an opportunity for settlement discussions, and address other matters as determined by the administrative law judge. The preliminary hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests are withdrawn or denied. The evidentiary phase of the contested case hearing, to be held at a later date, will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court and will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on March 10, 2015. In addition to these issues, the administrative law judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met.

The contested case 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.
To participate in the contested case hearing as a party, you must attend the preliminary hearing and show you would be affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the preliminary hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate in the contested case 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 the City of Liberty Hill at the address stated above or by calling Mr. Aaron Laughlin, P.E., Steger Bizzell, at 512-930-9412.
