Notice of Public Meeting on Proposed Remedial Action

Notice of a virtual public meeting on September 17, 2020, concerning the proposed remedial action at the McBay Oil and Gas state Superfund site in Grapeland, Texas (the site).

The public meeting will be held for the purpose of obtaining additional information regarding the facility and the identification of additional potentially responsible parties and to invite public comment concerning the proposed remedy for the site. The public meeting is not a contested case hearing under the Texas Government Code, Chapter 2001.

The executive director (ED) of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) issues this public notice of the proposed remedy for the site. In accordance with Texas Health and Safety Code, §361.187 and 30 Texas Administrative Code §335.349(a), a public meeting regarding the TCEQ's selection of a proposed remedy for the site shall be held. This notice was also published in the Grapeland Messenger and the Houston County Courier on August 6, 2020.

This meeting was originally scheduled for April 9, 2020, but was postponed. On March 16, 2020, in accordance with Texas Government Code, §418.016, Governor Abbott suspended various provisions of the Open Meetings Act that require government officials and members of the public to be physically present at a specified meeting location. Pursuant to that suspension, the public will not be able to attend the public meeting in person but may attend via the Microsoft Live application at no cost.

The public meeting will be held on September 17, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. This public meeting can be accessed through a Microsoft Live link and access code. Both the link, access code, and reference documents for the public meeting will be available by August 7, 2020 at the TCEQ's website, accessible at https://www.tceq.texas.gov/remediation/superfund/state/mcbay.html.

The site was proposed for listing on the state registry of Superfund sites in the July 25, 1986, issue of the Texas Register (11 TexReg 3421) and listed on the state registry of Superfund sites in the January 16, 1987, issue of the Texas Register (12 TexReg 205). On August 12, 1999, commercial/industrial land use was selected for remediation of the site.

The site is located on Farm-to-Market Road (FM) 1272, two miles west of the intersection with FM 2968 (North Olive Street), Grapeland, Texas, in a rural area of Houston County. The site is approximately 20 acres in size. A facility operated on the site until 1987, and at different times was an oil processing facility, an oil refinery, and an oil reclamation facility.

The TCEQ completed its investigation of the site and documented the results in an Affected Property Assessment Report. Groundwater contamination consisting of total petroleum hydrocarbons and several aromatic hydrocarbon contaminants is present on- and off-site in the uppermost groundwater-bearing unit, the Sparta Formation, which occurs approximately 22 to 50 feet below the ground surface.

The TCEQ has also completed a Focused Feasibility Study that evaluated remedial alternatives for remediating the site groundwater according to the Texas Risk Reduction Program (TRRP) rules. The process used to evaluate the remedial alternatives and the proposed remedy are documented in the Proposed Remedial Action Document (PRAD), which is available at the TCEQ's website, accessible at https://www.tceq.texas.gov/remediation/superfund/state/mcbay.html. The proposed remedy is an on- and off-site Plume Management Zone (PMZ). The PMZ will be established with institutional controls filed in county real property records in accordance with TRRP. Institutional controls will remain in place until it is demonstrated that chemicals of concern in groundwater no longer exceed the applicable Protective Concentration Levels.

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (the "Department") intends to implement a Mortgage Credit Certificate Program (the "Program") to assist eligible very low, low, and moderate income first-time homebuyers with the purchase of a residence located within the State of Texas. Under the Program, a first-time homebuyer who satisfies the eligibility requirements described herein may receive a federal income tax credit in an amount equal to the product of the certificate credit rate established under the Program and the interest paid or accrued by the homeowner during the taxable year on the remaining principal of the certified indebtedness amount incurred by the homeowner to acquire the principal residence of the homeowner; provided that, if the certificate credit rate established under the Program exceeds 20%, the amount of such credit allowed in any taxable year may not exceed $2,000. In order to qualify to receive a mortgage credit certificate, the homebuyer must qualify for a conventional, FHA, VA, USDA or other home mortgage loan from a lending institution and must meet the other requirements of the Program.

The mortgage credit certificates will be issued to qualified mortgagors on a first-come, first-served basis by the Department, which will review applications from lending institutions and prospective mortgagors to determine compliance with the requirements of the Program and determine that mortgage credit certificates remain available under the Program. No mortgage credit certificates will be issued prior to ninety (90) days from the date of publication of this notice or after the date that all of the credit certificate amount has been allocated to homebuyers, and in no event will mortgage credit certificates be issued later than the date permitted by federal tax law.

In order to satisfy the eligibility requirements for a mortgage credit certificate under the Program: (a) the prospective residence must be a single-family residence located within the State of Texas that can be reasonably expected to become the principal residence of the mortgagor within a reasonable period of time after the financing is provided; (b) the prospective homebuyer's current income must not exceed, (1) for families of three or more persons, 115% (140% in certain targeted areas or in certain cases permitted under applicable provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code")) of the area median income; and (2) for individuals and families of two persons, 100% (120% in certain targeted areas or in certain cases permitted under applicable provisions of the Code) of the area median income; (c) the prospective homebuyer must not have owned a home as a principal residence during the past three years (except in the case of certain targeted area residences or in certain cases permitted under applicable provisions of the Code); (d) the acquisition cost of the residence must not exceed 90% (110%, in the case of certain targeted area residences or in certain cases permitted under applicable provisions of the Code) of the average area purchase price applicable to the residence; and (e) no part of the proceeds of the qualified indebtedness may be used to acquire or replace an existing mortgage (except in certain cases permitted under applicable provisions of the Code). To obtain additional information on the Program, including the boundaries of current targeted areas, as well as the current income and purchase price limits (which are subject to revision and adjustment from time to time by the Department pursuant to changes in applicable federal law and Department policy), please contact Cathy Gutierrez at the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, 221 East 11th Street, Austin, Texas 78701-2410; telephone (512) 475-0277.

The Department intends to maintain a list of single family mortgage lenders that will participate in the Program by making loans to qualified holders of these mortgage credit certificates. Any lender interested in appearing on this list or in obtaining additional information regarding the Program should contact Cathy Gutierrez at the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, 221 East 11th Street, Austin, Texas 78701-2410; (512) 475-0277.

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 $30.00, $40.00, $50.00, $100, $200 or $400 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 "ROYAL WINNINGS" Scratch Ticket Game prize of $4,000, $20,000 or $250,000, the claimant must sign the winning Scratch Ticket and may present it at one of the Texas Lottery's Claim Centers. If the claim is validated by the Texas Lottery, payment will be made to the bearer of the validated winning Scratch Ticket for that prize upon presentation of proper identification. 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 "ROYAL WINNINGS" 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:

1. delinquent in the payment of a tax or other money to a state agency and that delinquency is reported to the Comptroller under Government Code §403.055;

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

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 "ROYAL WINNINGS" 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 "ROYAL WINNINGS" 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.

A. Until such time as a signature is placed upon the back portion of a Scratch Ticket in the space designated, a Scratch Ticket shall be owned by the physical possessor of said Scratch Ticket. 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.

B. The Texas Lottery shall not be responsible for lost or stolen Scratch Tickets and shall not be required to pay on a lost or stolen Scratch Ticket.

4.0 Number and Value of Scratch Prizes. There will be approximately 8,040,000 Scratch Tickets in Scratch Ticket Game No. 2268. The approximate number and value of prizes in the game are as follows:
