The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (the “TCEQ”) plans to issue the renewed Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit No. TXR040000 (the “General Permit”) this year to regulate the quality of storm water conveyed through public storm sewer systems. Fort Bend County MUD 81 (the “District”) will be required to comply with this renewed General Permit for 5 years and will require the preparation of annual reports outlining the actions completed by the District to regulate the quality of storm water in its storm sewer system.
The District has authorized Quiddity Engineering, its current engineering consultant, to develop a Storm Water Management Program to ensure these regulations are met and are properly documented. Quiddity will create clear, specific and measurable goals that meet the General Permit’s requirements for storm water quality regulation to be followed by all District consultants.
Once prepared, the annual reports will be posted on the District’s website for public record and Quiddity anticipates completion of the Annual Report for Permit Year 1 to be no later than March 30, 2025.
