Texas Health and Safety Code and Texas Water Code Settlement Notice

The State of Texas gives notice of the following proposed resolution of an environmental enforcement action under the Texas Water Code and the Texas Health and Safety Code. Before the State may enter into a voluntary settlement agreement, pursuant to Section 7.110 of the Texas Water Code, the State shall permit the public to comment in writing. The Attorney General will consider any written comments and may withdraw or withhold consent to the proposed agreement if the comments disclose facts or considerations indicating that consent is inappropriate, improper, inadequate, or inconsistent with the requirements of the law.

Case Title and Court: State of Texas v. Shell Oil Company; Cause No. D-1-GN-20-006663; in the 250th Judicial District, Travis County, Texas.

Background: Defendant operates an oil refinery at 5900 Highway 225 in Deer Park, Harris County, Texas (the "Refinery"). The State initiated the suit on behalf of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality ("TCEQ") to address three unauthorized emissions events on August 28-September 7, 2017; August 28-31, 2017; and August 27-29, 2017 from the Refinery and to enforce TCEQ air permits issued to Defendant under the Texas Clean Air Act.

Proposed Settlement: The parties propose an Agreed Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction ("Agreed Judgment"), which provides for an award of civil penalties of $115,000 plus $10,000 attorney's fees to the State. The Agreed Judgment also orders Defendant to retain an independent auditor to perform a comprehensive environmental audit of the excessive emissions events subject to the lawsuit, to evaluate secondary containment areas and aboveground storage tank roof drains at the Refinery, and to conduct American Petroleum Institute ("API") 653 External Tank Inspections of Tank A-330 at the Refinery. Defendant will implement the corrective actions identified in the audit. Moreover, Defendant will conduct an evaluation of its shutdown procedures and its internal policies and procedures designed to address deficiencies noted during API 653 External Tank Inspections to ensure prevention of recurrence of similar emissions events at the Refinery.

For a complete description of the proposed settlement, the Agreed Judgment should be reviewed in its entirety. Requests for copies of the proposed judgment and settlement, and written comments on the same, should be directed to Ekaterina DeAngelo, Assistant Attorney General, Office of the Attorney General of Texas, P.O. Box 12548, MC 066, Austin, Texas 78711-2548, (512) 463-2012, facsimile (512) 320-0911; or email Ekaterina.DeAngelo@oag.texas.gov.

Application and Draft Permit. Building Materials Investment Corporation, 2600 Singleton Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75212-3738, an Asphalt Shingle and Coating Materials Manufacturing facility, has applied to the TCEQ for a Renewal of Federal Operating Permit (herein referred to as permit) No. O2771, Application No. 30975 to authorize operation of the Dallas Plant. The area addressed by the application is located at 2600 Singleton Boulevard in Dallas, Dallas County, Texas 75212-3738. This application was received by the TCEQ on July 29, 2020.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, will codify the conditions under which the site must operate. The TCEQ Executive Director recommends issuance of the draft permit. The purpose of a federal operating permit is to improve overall compliance with the rules governing air pollution control by clearly listing all applicable requirements, as defined in Title 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §122.10. The permit will not authorize new construction or new emissions.

Notice and Comment Hearing. The hearing will be structured for the receipt of oral or written comments by interested persons.

During the informal discussion period, the public is encouraged to ask questions and engage in open discussion with the applicant and the TCEQ staff concerning this application and draft permit.

After the conclusion of the informal discussion period, the TCEQ will conduct a notice and comment hearing regarding the application and draft permit. Individuals may present oral statements when called upon in order of registration. A five-minute time limit may be established at the hearing to assure that enough time is allowed for every interested person to speak. The purpose of this hearing will be to receive formal public comment which the TCEQ will consider in determining whether to revise and/or issue the permit and in determining the accuracy and completeness of the permit. Any person may attend this hearing and submit written or oral comments. The hearing will be conducted in accordance with the Texas Clean Air Act § 382.0561, as codified in the Texas Health and Safety Code, and 30 TAC § 122.340.

Notice of Hearing on Lubrandon English: SOAH Docket No. 582-21-2294; TCEQ Docket No. 2021-0507-LIC

APPLICATION.

Lubrandon English, 9702 West Ferris Branch Boulevard, Apartment 428, Dallas, Texas 75243, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a new Water Operator License. The Executive Director denied Mr. English's application for cause. Mr. English has requested a formal hearing on the Executive Director's decision. During the review of Mr. English's application, the Executive Director discovered that Mr. English received deferred adjudication for a First-Degree Felony and a conviction for a Class B Misdemeanor. The Executive Director denied Mr. English's application because he considers these citations to be for offenses that directly relate to the duties and responsibilities of the licensed occupation.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.

The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a preliminary hearing via Zoom videoconference. A Zoom meeting is a secure, free meeting held over the internet that allows video, audio, or audio/video conferencing.

The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to establish jurisdiction, name the parties, establish a procedural schedule for the remainder of the proceeding, 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 the parties agree to waive the preliminary hearing.

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 to determine whether Mr. English should be issued a Water Operator License. Unless agreed to by all parties in attendance at the preliminary hearing, an evidentiary hearing will not be held on the date of this preliminary hearing. If Lubrandon English fails to appear at the preliminary hearing or evidentiary hearing, the Executive Director will request that the hearing be canceled, and that appeal of the Executive Director's decision be dismissed.

SOAH's rules allow for participation by telephone or videoconference. Permission must be obtained from SOAH at least ten days before the hearing.

Legal Authority: Texas Water Code Chapters 5 and 37; Texas Occupations Code Chapter 53; Texas Government Code, Chapter 2001; 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 30, and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapters 70 and 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155.
