As a reminder, the State of Texas’s new stormwater construction general permit is now in effect.  The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s (TCEQ) has renewed its General Permit to Discharge under the Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit, Permit No. TXR150000, which authorizes discharges from construction sites into surface water in the state.  Operators of large construction activities that were covered under the prior permit and continue to operate must now submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to renew authorization within 90 days of the March 5 effective date.  For more information on these changes, see our prior blog post on this topic.
