APPLICATION.

Texas Providence Investments, LLC, 10600 Richmond Avenue, Houston, Texas 77042, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015460001to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 8,000 gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on February 17, 2016.

The facility will be located at 13722 Kluge Road, in Cypress, Harris County, Texas 77429. The treated effluent will be discharged to a Harris County Flood Control District detention pond; thence to Cypress Creek in Segment No. 1009 of the San Jacinto River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for the Harris County Flood Control District detention pond. The designated uses for Segment No. 1009 are primary contact recreation, public water supply, and high aquatic life use. 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 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 Cypress 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 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 Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Region 12 Office, 5425 Polk Street, Suite H, Houston, Texas.
