Applying for New Texas TPDES Multi Sector General Permit

The TCEQ is proposing to issue the new TPDES Multi Sector General Permit (MSGP) in July 2011 with the effective date of August 14, 2011. The TCEQ plans to send renewal notification letters to inform current permittees that facilities who want to renew permit coverage have until November 21, 2011 to submit the required application form (NOI or NEC). Current permittees who do not want to renew coverage must submit an NOT before September 1, 2011, to avoid the $200 annual water quality fee.

According to TCEQ, renewal application forms will not be available nor accepted before the permit effective date of August 14, 2011. If an operator submits an NOI or an NEC before the effective date of the permit, a new authorization under the existing permit will be processed.
