Notice of Hearing on Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 495: SOAH Docket No. 582-22-2346; TCEQ Docket No. 2022-0148-MWD; Permit No. WQ0015222001

APPLICATION.

Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 495, c/o ABHR, 3200 Southwest Freeway, Suite 2600, Houston, Texas 77027, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015222001, to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from a daily average flow not to exceed 900,000 gallons per day (gpd) to an annual average flow not to exceed 1,500,000 gpd. TCEQ received this application on March 10, 2020.

The facility is located at 5455 ½ Porter Road, in Harris County, Texas 77493. The treated effluent is discharged to South Mayde Creek, thence to Buffalo Bayou, thence to Buffalo Bayou Above Tidal in Segment No. 1014 of the San Jacinto River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for South Mayde Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1014 are primary contact recreation and limited aquatic life use. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §307.5 and the TCEQ's Procedures to Implement the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards (June 2010), 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. As a public courtesy, we have provided the following Web page to an online map of the site or the facility's general location. The online map is not part of the application or the notice: https://tceq.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=db5bac44afbc468bbddd360f8168250f&marker=-95.791144%2C29.852741&level=12. For the exact location, refer to the application.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The TCEQ 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 https://www.lja.com/tpdes-permits/.

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.

Notice of Public Meeting for TPDES Permit for Municipal Wastewater: New Permit No. WQ0015990001

APPLICATION. Gram Vikas Partners, Inc., 215 West Bandera Road, #114-474, Boerne, Texas 78006, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015990001, to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 200,000 gallons per day.

The facility will be located approximately 0.3 mile south-southeast of the intersection of

Farm-to-Market Road 1101 and Watson Lane, in Comal County, Texas 78130. The treated effluent will be discharged to Mesquite Creek, thence to York Creek, thence to the Lower San Marcos River in Segment No. 1808 of the Guadalupe River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are limited aquatic life use for Mesquite Creek and York Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1808 are primary contact recreation, public water supply, and high aquatic life use. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code Section 307.5 and the TCEQ's Procedures to Implement the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards (June 2010), 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. 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.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit.

Please periodically check the following website for updates, in the event the TCEQ Library is closed due to COVID-19 restrictions: https://www.tceq.texas.gov/permitting/wqmp/WQmanagement_comment.html.

The WQMP is developed and promulgated in accordance with the requirements of the Clean Water Act, §208, 33 U.S.C. §1288. The draft update includes projected effluent limits of specific domestic dischargers, which may be useful for planning in future permit actions.

Notice and Opportunity to Comment on Requests for Consistency Agreement/Concurrence Under the Texas Coastal Management Program

On January 10, 1997, the State of Texas received federal approval of the Coastal Management Program (CMP) (62 Federal Register pp. 1439 - 1440). Under federal law, federal agency activities and actions affecting the Texas coastal zone must be consistent with the CMP goals and policies identified in 31 TAC Chapter 501. Requests for federal consistency review were deemed administratively complete for the following project(s) during the period of April 18, 2022, to April 22, 2022. As required by federal law, the public is given an opportunity to comment on the consistency of proposed activities in the coastal zone undertaken or authorized by federal agencies. Pursuant to 31 TAC §§506.25, 506.32, and 506.41, the public comment period extends 30 days from the date published on the Texas General Land Office web site. The notice was published on the web site on Friday, April 29, 2022. The public comment period for this project will close at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 29, 2022.

FEDERAL AGENCY ACTIONS:

Applicant: Texas General Land Office

Location: The Regional General Permit (RGP) is limited to Waters of the US, within the Galveston District, under the authority of the GLO, including state owned submerged land, and tidally influenced reaches of jurisdictional wetlands and Waters of the US, within the state of Texas.

Project Description: This RGP authorizes the GLO to conduct work, and temporarily excavate and/or place dredged and/or fill materials for the purpose of removing debris that presents a physical hazard in Waters of the US. Such hazards include storm debris, derelict vessels, derelict structures, and abandoned pipelines. The proposed text of the new RGP is attached for your review and comment.

Historically, the GLO sought authorization to conduct work, and temporarily excavate and place dredged and/or fill materials for the purpose of removing hazardous debris, derelict vessels and derelict structures from Waters of the US on a case-by-case basis. The vast majority of projects were authorized under the Nationwide Permit (NWP) program. Several projects each year exceed acreage thresholds allowed by the NWP program and require authorization through Individual Permits. Both permitting mechanisms have highly variable timeframes from application to authorization.

The intent of the reissuance of this RGP is to continue to authorize all work, temporary excavation, and temporary placement of dredged and/or fill materials for the purpose of removing hazardous debris, derelict vessels and derelict structures from Waters of the US. The GLO has been issued 3 authorizations under the current RGP in the last 5 years.

The area of Waters of the US, including wetlands, varies in terms of size and quantity. However, material excavated to expose hazardous debris, derelict structures or derelict vessels will be replaced, and the original elevation restored as closely as possible. This GP does not authorize permanent dredging or the creation of access channels. No compensatory mitigation for impacts to special aquatic sites, including wetlands, will be required if the adverse effects of the project are minimal or the impacts associated with removal are less than the anticipated amount of habitat that will be restored as a result of the removal effort. If the District Engineer (DE) determines that the adverse effects of the proposed work are more than minimal, then the DE will notify the applicant either: (1) That the project does not qualify for authorization under the GP and instruct the applicant on the procedures to seek authorization under an individual permit; (2) that the project is authorized under the GP subject to the applicant's submission of a DE approved mitigation plan that would reduce the adverse effects on the aquatic environment to the minimal level; or (3) that the project is authorized under the GP with specific modifications or conditions.

Type of Application: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit application #SWG-2010-00605. This application will be reviewed pursuant to Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. Note: The consistency review for this project may be conducted by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality as part of its certification under §401 of the Clean Water Act.

CMP Project No: 22-1270-F1

Further information on the applications listed above, including a copy of the consistency certifications or consistency determinations for inspection, may be obtained from the Texas General Land Office Public Information Officer at 1700 N. Congress Avenue, Austin, Texas 78701, or via email at pialegal@glo.texas.gov. Comments should be sent to the Texas General Land Office Coastal Management Program Coordinator at the above address or via email at federal.consistency@glo.texas.gov.

The Texas Lottery Retailer shall verify the claim and, if valid, and upon presentation of proper identification, if appropriate, make payment of the amount due the claimant and physically void the Scratch Ticket; provided that the Texas Lottery Retailer may, but is not required, to pay a $50.00, $100, $250 or $500 Scratch Ticket Game. In the event the Texas Lottery Retailer cannot verify the claim, the Texas Lottery Retailer shall provide the claimant with a claim form and instruct the claimant on how to file a claim with the Texas Lottery. If the claim is validated by the Texas Lottery, a check shall be forwarded to the claimant in the amount due. In the event the claim is not validated, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly. A claimant may also claim any of the above prizes under the procedure described in Section 2.3.B and Section 2.3.C of these Game Procedures.

B. To claim a "50X THE CASH" Scratch Ticket Game prize of $1,000, $5,000 or $100,000, the claimant must sign the winning Scratch Ticket and may present it at one of the Texas Lottery's Claim Centers.

When paying a prize of $600 or more, the Texas Lottery shall file the appropriate income reporting form with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and shall withhold federal income tax at a rate set by the IRS if required. In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

C. As an alternative method of claiming a "50X THE CASH" Scratch Ticket Game prize the claimant may submit the signed winning Scratch Ticket and a thoroughly completed claim form via mail. If a prize value is $1,000,000 or more, the claimant must also provide proof of Social Security number or Tax Payer Identification (for U.S. Citizens or Resident Aliens). Mail all to: Texas Lottery Commission, P.O. Box 16600, Austin, Texas 78761-6600. The Texas Lottery is not responsible for Scratch Tickets lost in the mail. In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

D. Prior to payment by the Texas Lottery of any prize, the Texas Lottery shall deduct the amount of a delinquent tax or other money from the winnings of a prize winner who has been finally determined to be:

2. in default on a loan made under Chapter 52, Education Code;

C. if there is any question regarding the validity of the Scratch Ticket presented for payment; or

D. if the claim is subject to any deduction from the payment otherwise due, as described in Section 2.3.D of these Game Procedures. No liability for interest for any delay shall accrue to the benefit of the claimant pending payment of the claim.

2.5 Payment of Prizes to Persons Under 18. If a person under the age of 18 years is entitled to a cash prize under $600 from the "50X THE CASH" Scratch Ticket Game, the Texas Lottery shall deliver to an adult member of the minor's family or the minor's guardian a check or warrant in the amount of the prize payable to the order of the minor.

2.6 If a person under the age of 18 years is entitled to a cash prize of $600 or more from the "50X THE CASH" Scratch Ticket Game, the Texas Lottery shall deposit the amount of the prize in a custodial bank account, with an adult member of the minor's family or the minor's guardian serving as custodian for the minor.

2.7 Scratch Ticket Claim Period. All Scratch Ticket prizes must be claimed within 180 days following the end of the Scratch Ticket Game or within the applicable time period for certain eligible military personnel as set forth in Texas Government Code §466.408. Any rights to a prize that is not claimed within that period, and in the manner specified in these Game Procedures and on the back of each Scratch Ticket, shall be forfeited.

2.8 Disclaimer. The number of prizes in a game is approximate based on the number of Scratch Tickets ordered. The number of actual prizes available in a game may vary based on number of Scratch Tickets manufactured, testing, distribution, sales and number of prizes claimed. A Scratch Ticket Game may continue to be sold even when all the top prizes have been claimed.

3.0 Scratch Ticket Ownership.

When a signature is placed on the back of the Scratch Ticket in the space designated, the player whose signature appears in that area shall be the owner of the Scratch Ticket and shall be entitled to any prize attributable thereto. Notwithstanding any name or names submitted on a claim form, the Executive Director shall make payment to the player whose signature appears on the back of the Scratch Ticket in the space designated. If more than one name appears on the back of the Scratch Ticket, the Executive Director will require that one of those players whose name appears thereon be designated by such players to receive payment.
