Help Spread the Word
A friendly reminder - today is the last day to submit comments before the Executive Director of TCEQ makes his recommendation on Friday!
Tomorrow, TCEQ's Executive Director will announce his recommendation to the Commissioners on whether to accept or reject the Pristine Streams Petition. Filed January 31, this petition requests the TCEQ to accept a new rule that prohibits wastewater discharge into 22 stream segments where the addition of phosphorus will degrade water quality.
The rule would protect several of the Hill Country's most iconic streams, including portions of the Blanco, Llano, and Nueces Rivers, as well as smaller streams like Barton, Cypress, and Hondo Creeks. Supported by landowners, community groups, conservationists and local governments, this proposal is a fair, balanced and necessary action to protect the last pristine streams in Texas. We need your help submitting comments of support for the filed petition to the TCEQ by this Friday, March 11, 2022.
If you want to help, please take a few minutes to:
- Submit a public comment in support of revisions to Pristine Stream Petition No. 2022-014-PET-NR.
- Tell your friends and neighbors!
If you have already submitted a public comment - thank you!
