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. Murray B. Weiner, Harold Bogatz, and Mel Adlerman; Cause No. D-1-GV-03-003648, in the 200th Judicial District Court, Travis County, Texas.

Background: This is a Superfund cost recovery suit filed by the State pursuant to Texas Health and Safety Code section 361.197 to recover the cleanup costs expended by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality ("TCEQ") at the Aztec Ceramics State Superfund Site--a former tile manufacturing facility owned and operated by Aztec Ceramics Corporation located at 4735 Emil Road, San Antonio, Texas. The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission, predecessor to the TCEQ, named the Defendants Weiner, Bogatz, and Adlerman as responsible parties in an administrative order issued in May 2000, which required they perform the cleanup. The TCEQ actually performed the cleanup and sought reimbursement from the Defendants. Weiner could not be served and is now known to be deceased. Bogatz and Adlerman were served and have agreed to settle this cost recovery case.

Proposed Settlement: The parties propose an Agreed Final Judgment which provides for an award to the State of $6,000 as contribution for reimbursement for the TCEQ's clean-up costs and $1,000 in attorney's fees.

For a complete description of the proposed settlement, the Agreed Final 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 Logan Harrell, Assistant Attorney General, Office of the Texas Attorney General, P.O. Box 12548, MC-066, Austin, Texas 78711-2548, (512) 463-2012, facsimile (512) 320-0911; email: Logan.Harrell@oag.texas.gov. Written comments must be received within 30 days of publication of this notice to be considered.

Notice of Hearing on Lakeview Municipal Utility District No. 1 of Ellis County: SOAH Docket No. 582-22-0260; TCEQ Docket No. 2021-0572-DIS; TCEQ Internal Control No. D-11042020-005

PETITION.

Finch FP, Ltd. (Petitioner) filed a petition for the creation of Lakeview Municipal Utility District No. 1 of Ellis County (District) with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The petition states that: (1) the Petitioner holds title to the majority of the assessed value of the land to be included in the proposed District; (2) there are no lienholders on the property to be included in the proposed District; (3) the proposed District will contain approximately 362.037 acres located within Ellis County, Texas; (4) the proposed District is within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Waxahachie, Texas; and (5) although the City of Waxahachie (City) has not consented to the creation of the District, the Petitioner has satisfied the requirements of Texas Water Code (TWC) §54.016(b) and (c) and Texas Local Government Code (LGC) §42.042, so that the authorization for inclusion of the land in the proposed District may be assumed pursuant to the cited statutes.

The petition also states that the proposed District will: (1) construct, purchase, acquire, improve, or extend, inside or outside of its boundaries any and all works, improvements, facilities, plants, equipment, and appliances necessary or helpful to supply and distribute water for municipal, domestic, and commercial wastes; (2), collect, transport, process, dispose of and control domestic and commercial wastes; (3) gather, conduct, divert, abate, amend and control local storm water or other local harmful excess of water in the District; (4) design, acquire, construct, finance, improve, maintain and operate macadamized, graveled or paved roads, and turnpikes, or improvements in aid of those roads; (5) and purchase, construct, acquire, improve, or extend inside or outside of its boundaries such additional facilities, systems, plants, and enterprises as shall be consonant with the purposes for which the District is created. It further states that the planned residential and commercial development of the area and the present and future inhabitants of the area will be benefited by the above-referenced work, which will promote the protection of the purity and sanitary condition of the State's waters and the public health and welfare of the community, thereby constituting a public necessity.

According to the petition, a preliminary investigation has been made to determine the cost of the project, and it is estimated by the Petitioner, that the bond issue requirement of said project will be approximately $56,925,000. The financial analysis in the application was based on an estimated $56,840,000 ($34,185,000 for water, wastewater and drainage and $22,655,000 for roads) at the time of submittal.

In accordance with LGC §42.042 and TWC §54.016, the Petitioner submitted a petition to the City, requesting the City's consent to the creation of the District. After more than 90 days passed without receiving consent, the Petitioner submitted a petition to the City to provide water or sewer services to the District. The 120-day period for reaching a mutually agreeable contract as established by the TWC §54.016(c) expired and the information provided indicates that the Petitioners and the City have not executed a mutually agreeable contract for service. Pursuant to TWC §54.016(d), failure to execute such an agreement constitutes authorization for the Petitioner to initiate proceedings to include the land within the district.

Notice of Issuance of Amendment to Air Quality Standard Permit for Concrete Batch Plants

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or commission) issues an amendment to non-rule air quality standard permit for concrete batch plants (CBPs) in accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §116.605, Standard Permit Amendment and Revocation. The amendment updates the standard permit to reinstate an exemption that was previously included in the standard permit, but inadvertently removed during the 2012 amendment process. The exemption specifies that facilities which meet the conditions of the standard permit do not have to demonstrate compliance with the emissions and distance limitations listed in §116.610(a)(1), Applicability. During the development of the original standard permit an extensive protectiveness review addressed emission rates and distance limitations for these facilities, thus allowing for the exemption of a separate demonstration that an applicant would meet the emissions and distance limitations listed in §116.610(a)(1). The standard permit is effective for standard permits issued after September 22, 2021.

Copies of the standard permit and summary can be obtained from the commission's website at: https://www.tceq.texas.gov/permitting/air/nav/standard.html. For further information, please contact David Munzenmaier, Air Permits Division, at (512) 239-6092 (please leave a voicemail).

Explanation and Background of Air Quality Standard Permit

The New Source Review Program under Chapter 116 requires any person who plans to construct any new facility or to engage in the modifications of any existing facility which may emit air contaminants into the air of the state to obtain a permit pursuant to §116.110, Applicability, or satisfy the conditions of a standard permit, a flexible permit, or a permit by rule, before any actual work is begun on the facility. A standard permit authorizes the construction or modification of new or existing facilities which are similar in terms of operations, processes, and emissions.

The amendment to the standard permit provides a preconstruction authorization that may be used for any CBP complying with the standard permit requirements and does not relieve the owner or operator from any other applicable provision of the Texas Health and Safety Code (THSC), Texas Water Code, rules of the TCEQ, or any additional state or federal regulations. The purpose of this amendment is to reinstate a previously included exemption from §116.610(a)(1), which requires a standard permit (including the CBP standard permit) to meet the emission limitations in §106.261, Facilities (Emission Limitations), unless otherwise specified by the provisions of that standard permit. Upon adoption of the original standard permit for concrete batch plants on September 1, 2000, and amendment on July 10, 2003, the standard permit included this exemption to the requirement to demonstrate compliance with the emissions and distance limitations listed in §116.610(a)(1) for CBP facilities which meet the conditions of this standard permit. However, during the 2012 amendment, this exemption was inadvertently deleted from the standard permit and was not formally adopted.

This amendment to the standard permit does not affect the protectiveness review conducted during the development of the standard permit. The results of the protectiveness review using the maximum production limits established by the standard permit continue to demonstrate that the standard permit is protective based on the current effects screening level guidelines and current National Ambient Air Quality Standards. General requirements concerning distance limits, emissions limits, control requirements, and recordkeeping have not changed.

Overview of Air Quality Standard Permit

The commission issues the amendment to the air quality standard permit for CPBs under the authority of the Texas Clean Air Act (TCAA), THSC, §382.05195, Standard Permit, and 30 TAC Chapter 116, Subchapter F, Standard Permits. The amendment updates the standard permit to reinstate the exemption from emissions and distance limitations in §116.610(a)(1), that was inadvertently removed during the 2012 amendment process.

Public Notice and Comment Period

In accordance with §116.603, Public Participation in Issuance of Standard Permits, the TCEQ published notice of the proposed standard permit in the Texas Register and newspapers of the largest general circulation in the following metropolitan areas: Austin, Dallas, and Houston. The date of these publications was May 28, 2021. The public comment period ran from May 28, 2021 until midnight on June 29, 2021. Written and oral comments were received.

Public Meeting

The commission held a public meeting on this amendment via telephone conference on June 28, 2021, and oral comments were received for approximately two hours.

Analysis of Comments

The commission received comments from numerous commenters. The list of these commenters and summaries of the comments and the commission's response may be found at:

https://www.tceq.texas.gov/permitting/air/nav/standard.html.

Statutory Authority

This standard permit is issued under THSC, §382.011, General Powers and Duties, which authorizes the commission to control the quality of the state's air; THSC, §382.023, Orders, which authorizes the commission to issue orders necessary to carry out the policy and purposes of the TCAA, THSC, §382.051, Permitting Authority of the Commission; Rules, which authorizes the commission to issue permits, including standard permits for similar facilities for numerous similar sources; THSC, §382.0513, Permit Conditions, which authorizes the commission to establish and enforce permit conditions consistent with Subchapter C of the TCAA; and THSC, §382.05195, Standard Permit, which authorizes the commission to issue standard permits according to the procedures set out in that section.

Notice of Extension of Conditional Certification Status

The General Land Office (GLO) is extending the conditional certification of the of the City of Galveston's Beach Access and Dune Protection Plan (Plan), as designated in 31 Texas Administrative Code §15.36(d). The City has informally reported progress on beach access compliance to the GLO on a bi-weekly basis while its Plan has been conditionally certified. The GLO is requiring the City to achieve full compliance with the City's Beach Access Plan by December 31, 2022.

The City is not currently in compliance with certain beach access requirements under its existing Beach Access and Dune Protection Plan. The City must come into compliance with its Plan and make future amendments to its Plan as necessary to reflect any substantive changes needed to achieve compliance with state law. If the City does not come into compliance, the GLO may withdraw certification of a portion of the Plan or the entire Plan in accordance with 31 TAC §15.10 and §15.21. If the GLO withdraws certification of a portion of or of the entire Plan, the City may lose the ability to collect the increased amount of the Beach User Fee (BUF) it is currently collecting, may completely lose the authority to collect a BUF, may lose the authority to issue permits or certificates authorizing construction, or the certification of some other portion of its Plan may be withdrawn.

Since the rule amendment conditionally certifying its Plan, the City has put forth significant effort to restore and enhance the public's ability to access and use the public beach. During the past six months, the noncompliance issues at access point (AP) 32 - Pocket Park No. 4 have been resolved with the construction of an off-beach parking area and a pedestrian pathway to the beach. In addition, the City has confirmed the location of the four pedestrian pathways to the beach required under the City's Plan at AP 20 - Indian Beach.

The City is required to install beach access signage adjacent to all four pedestrian pathways to the beach at AP 20 - Indian Beach and ensure each pathway is accessible to the public by December 30, 2021. The City also must complete the installation of beach access signage at AP 15A - Pirates Beach Subdivision, AP 15B - Palm Beach Subdivision, and AP 15C - Pirates Beach West Subdivision by December 30, 2021.

As required, the City has provided the GLO with a plan to restore pedestrian pathways to the beach at AP 23 - The Dunes of West Beach, and AP 24 - Sandhill Shores. At least one pedestrian pathway to the beach must be constructed and accessible to the public at AP 23 - The Dunes of West Beach by December 30, 2021. If the deadline is not met, the City will be required to restore vehicular access to the beach by January 31, 2022. The second required pedestrian pathways to the beach at AP 23 - The Dunes of West Beach and AP 24 - Sandhill Shores must be constructed and accessible to the public by September 1, 2022. If the September 2022 deadline is not met, the City will be required to restore vehicular access to the beach by November 1, 2022. The beach at each access point must remain open to vehicular traffic until the subdivision comes into compliance with the pedestrian access requirements.

As required, the City provided the GLO with a plan to resolve the shortfall in the required parking for AP 20 - Indian Beach and AP 23 - Dunes of West Beach. The parking plans for these access points be fully implemented and the parking shortfalls resolved by December 30, 2021. If the deadline is not met, the City will be required to restore vehicular access to the beach by January 31, 2022. The beach at each access point must remain open to vehicular traffic until the subdivision comes into compliance with the parking requirements.

The City is required to provide solutions to resolve the shortfall in the required parking at AP 12 - Bermuda Beach and AP 27 - Sea Isle Parking Area by December 30, 2021. If the deadline is not met, the City will be required to restore vehicular access to the beach at these access points by January 31, 2022. The beach at each access point must remain open to vehicular traffic until the subdivision comes into compliance with the parking requirements.

The City requested to change the deadline for construction of the required off-beach parking lot and dune walkover at AP 9 - Pocket Park No. 2 from May 1, 2021 to November 20, 2021. The City also requested to change the deadline for construction of the off-beach parking and pedestrian pathway to the beach at AP 13 - Pocket Park No. 3 from December 31, 2021 to July 31, 2022. In the interim, the City has relocated the bollards at Pocket Park No. 3 farther east to expand the size of the on-beach parking area.

The conditional certification status of the City's Plan will remain until the City is in compliance with all of its Plan's beach access requirements.
