Notice of Public Meeting for TPDES Permit for Municipal Wastewater New Permit No. WQ0015666001

APPLICATION. Norhill Energy, LLC, 620 Truelove Trail, Southlake, Texas 76092, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015666001, to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 75,000 gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on March 19, 2018.

The facility will be located approximately 1,578 feet southwest of the intersection of County Road 412 and County Road 409, in Collin County, Texas 75069. The treated effluent will be discharged to an unnamed tributary; thence to Stiff Creek; thence to Soil Conservation Service (SCS) Site 12 Reservoir; thence to Stiff Creek; thence to Sister Grove Creek; thence to Lavon Lake in Segment No. 0821 of the Trinity River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed tributary, limited aquatic life use for Stiff Creek, and high aquatic life use for SCS Site 12 Reservoir. The designated uses for Segment No. 0821 are high aquatic life use, public water supply, and primary contact recreation. In accordance with 30 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 SCS Site 12 Reservoir, which has been identified as having high aquatic life uses. 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.

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

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 October 1, 2018, to October 19, 2018. 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, November 2, 2018. The public comment period for this project will close at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 2, 2018.

FEDERAL AGENCY ACTIVITIES:

Applicant: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Project Description: In November 2015, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in partnership with the non-Federal Sponsor (NFS), the Texas General Land Office (GLO), began the Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Feasibility Study (Coastal Texas Study) to determine the feasibility of alternatives to enhance, restore, and sustain the environment, economy, and culture along the Texas coast. The Draft Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement (DIFR-EIS) documents the examination and selection of the Tentatively Selected Plan (TSP). The environmental, engineering, economic, and social analyses conducted to determine which alternative best addresses the coastal hazards that negatively impact the Texas coast were conducted in accordance with USACE procedures and guidance. Following identification of the TSP, the impacts of each of the alternatives considered were evaluated in accordance with the procedures under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The USACE and GLO identified the alternative during the TSP Milestone Meeting, held on May 30, 2018. The Chief of Planning and Policy approved the release of the DIFR-EIS for concurrent public review, policy review, and Independent External Peer Review. The USACE Project Delivery Team (PDT) and the GLO will analyze and address comments received during the concurrent reviews to assist with the development of the Final Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement (FIFR-EIS).

The analyses conducted by the USACE and GLO for the Coastal Texas Study's DIFR-EIS will determine the feasibility and impacts of constructing large-scale coastal storm risk management (CSRM) and ecosystem restoration (ER) alternative plans to restore and enhance the State's ecologic coastal features and reduce the risk of coastal storm damage. The CSRM alternative plans consist of structural features that include levees, floodwalls, surge barrier gates (both navigable and environmental flow control gates), and breakwaters. The ER alternative plans consist of nonstructural features that include habitat restoration and shoreline erosion control through marsh, beach/dune, and island restoration. These features will address critical coastal ecosystems in need of restoration, including wetlands, seagrass beds, sea turtle nesting habitat, piping plover critical habitat, bird island rookeries, and Federal and State wildlife refuges. The DIFR-EIS also includes a No-Action Alternative. The intent of the CSRM and ER structural and nonstructural features is to provide coastal communities with a multiple-lines-of-defense strategy to become more resilient and less vulnerable to coastal hazards. This would help protect the vital coastal ecosystem, the health and safety of residents and visitors in the coastal communities, and the industries within those communities, all of which are critical to the economic wellbeing of the State and the Nation.

The DIFR-EIS documents can be reviewed on the USACE Galveston District website at:

CMP Project No: 19-1065-F2

Applicant: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Project Description: The purpose of the proposed project is to improve navigation safety on the Matagorda Ship Channel (MSC) and reduce channel scouring. The design deficiency is in the land cut, where the channel narrows from 2,000 feet to 950 feet (referred to as the bottleneck). The bottleneck constricts the flow and increases current velocity that leads to channel scouring. Navigation safety is hampered by the effect of the current velocities on the pilots' control of ships. Alternatives being considered include channel designs and beneficial use placement areas for dredged material. The Proposed Action includes removing the existing rock dike on both sides of the channel and reusing the stone to construct a new 2,800-foot dike on the west bank and 3,800-foot dike on the east bank of the MSC. A barge canal would be mechanically dredged to a depth of -14 Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) from the bay side and material would be placed in the permanent placement area behind the new dikes and in the temporary placement areas to be hydraulically dredged later. A 3-foot blanket of stone would be placed for armoring the new channel slopes from elevation +4.0 to -17 feet MLLW. The bottleneck between the jetties would be removed. Dredging would be performed using a hydraulic cutterhead dredge to a depth of -40 feet MLLW. Approximately 2,454,000 cubic yards (cy) would be dredged on the west channel side and placed in a 344-acre beneficial use placement area. The material would be discharged in the surf zone adjacent to the west jetty for beach restoration. Approximately 2,454,000 cy would be dredged on the eastern channel side; half would be placed in the surf zone adjacent to the west jetty. The other half would be placed adjacent to Sundown Island on the northwestern side creating a 51-acre island expansion with a 73-acre water bottom footprint. Three areas of existing large jetty stone, 1,950 linear feet (1.4 acres) would be removed and reused for construction of the flares on the bay side. Under the Proposed Action, the water velocity would be reduced, navigation would be safer, vessels would no longer need to wait, and channel scouring would be reduced.

CMP Project No: 19-1068-F2

FEDERAL AGENCY ACTIONS:

Order Placing Certain Food and Drug Administration Approved Drugs Containing Cannabidiol into Schedule V

The Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration issued a final order placing Food and Drug Administration approved drugs that contain cannabidiol derived from cannabis and no more than 0.1 percent residual tetrahydrocannabinols into Schedule V, effective September 28, 2018. This final order was published in the Federal Register, Volume 83, Number 189, pages 48950 - 48953. This action was based on the following:

1. FDA approved drugs containing cannabidiol have currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States;

2. FDA approved drugs containing cannabidiol no longer meet the criteria for placement in Schedule I;

3. FDA approved drugs containing cannabidiol have a very low potential for abuse; and,

4. The amendment was necessary to carry out United States obligations under the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961.

Pursuant to Section 481.034(g), as amended by the 75th legislature, of the Texas Controlled Substances Act, Health and Safety Code, Chapter 481, at least thirty-one days have expired since notice of the above referenced action was published in the Federal Register. In the capacity as Commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, John Hellerstedt, M.D., does hereby order that FDA-approved drug products containing cannabidiol with no more than 0.1 percent residual tetrahydrocannabinols be placed into Schedule V. Due to the fact that this safe and effective drug is now available through federal Food and Drug Administration approval, immediately scheduling this drug will mitigate imminent hazard to public safety by offering access to an approved therapy that will address potentially life-threatening situations for a known population of children with intractable epilepsy.

SCHEDULE V

*Approved cannabidiol drugs.

A drug product in finished dosage formulation that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that contains cannabidiol (2-[1R-3-methyl-6R-(1-methylethenyl)-2-cyclohexen-1 -yl]-5-pentyl-1,3-benzenediol) derived from cannabis and no more than 0.1 percent (w/w) residual tetrahydrocannabinols.
