Proposed Rule Change Process To Date
You may recall the 2017 Proposed Rule Changes where TCEQ held Stakeholder meetings across Texas gathering input on the classification of irrigation systems as health hazards, eliminating the use of double check valves, etc. After much feedback received, TCEQ staff made their recommendation to TCEQ Commissioners.
During the November IAC meeting it was noted that even though the rule petitions set forth by the IAC were recommended to the Commissioners with revisions, during the Public Comment Period, the proposed classification of irrigation as a high health hazard as well as other rule change proposals can be presented once again and be reconsidered.
Important dates to note regarding public input to be taken into consideration before final adoption of proposed rule changes are as follows:
- Proposal – 01/15/2020
- Public Comment Period – 01/31/2020 - 03/03/2020
- Adoption – 07/01/2020
