NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION FOR WATER QUALITY

TPDES  PERMIT FOR MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER

MAJOR AMENDMENT PERMIT NO. WQoo10150003

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. City of Coleman, P.O. Box 592,

Coleman, Texas 76834, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant  Discharge Elimination  System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0010150003 to change the discharge route. The current permit authorizes the discharge of

treated filter backwash effluent at a daily average flow not to exceed 50,000 gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on December 22, 2017. The Applicant is publishing this combined notice to correct the  discharge route of the  Permit. The incorrect discharge route was provided in the Notice of Receipt of Application and Intent to Obtain a Water Quality TPDES  Permit.

The facility is located at 8oo  Mississippi Street, in the City of Coleman, Coleman County, Texas

76834. The treated effluent is discharged via Outfall 001 to an unnamed ditch; thence to an unnamed pond; thence to an unnamed creek; thence to Old City Lake; thence to Loss Creek; thence to Home Creek; thence to the Colorado River Below 0. H. Ivie Reservoir in Segment No.

1410 of the Colorado River Basin.  The second discharge route via Outfall 001 is to an unnamed ditch; thence to an unnamed pond; thence to an unnamed creek; thence to Old City Lake; thence to Loss Creek;  thence to an unnamed tributary ofHords Creek;  thence to Hords Creek; thence to Jim  Ned Creek;  thence to Lake Brownwood in Segment No.  1418 of the  Colorado River Basin. Outfall 002 is via pipeline to Old City Lake; thence to Loss Creek and either to Home Creek; thence to the Colorado River Below 0. H. Ivie Reservoir in Segment No.  1410 of the Colorado River  Basin or to an unnamed tributary of Hords Creek;  thence to Hords Creek;  thence to Jim  Ned Creek; thence to Lake Brownwood in Segment No.  1418

of the Colorado River Basin. Outfall 003 is via pipeline to the Country Club Lake; thence to an unnamed tributary of Home Creek; thence to Home Creek; thence to the Colorado River

Below 0. H. Ivie Reservoir in Segment No. 1418 of the Colorado River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed ditch and the unnamed creek, high aquatic life use for the unnamed pond and Old City Lake, limited aquatic life use for the unnamed tributary to Home Creek. The designated uses for Segment Nos. 1410 and 1418 are high aquatic life uses, public water supply, and primary contact recreation. In accordance with

30 Texas Administrative Code§  307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures  (June  2010) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed.  A Tier 1 antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that

 existing water quality uses will not be impaired  by this permit action.  Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in the unnamed pond and Old City Lake, which have been identified  as having high aquatic life use.  Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application  or notice.  For the exact location, refer to the application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb61o/index.html?lat=31.830SS5&lng=-

99.439444&zoom =13&type=r

 The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application  and prepared  a draft permit.  The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director's  preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Coleman City Hall, 200 West Liveoak Street, Coleman, Texas.

 Following the close of all applicable comment  and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application  and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

 The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. If a hearing is granted, the subject of a hearing will be limited to disputed issues of fact  or mixed questions of fact and law relating to relevant and material water quality concerns submitted during the comment period.

 EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. The Executive Director may issue final approval of the application  unless a timely contested  case hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed. If a timely hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed, the Executive Director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application  and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled  Commission meeting.

Call 811 Before You Dig: It is the Law!

Calling 811 Reduces Risk of Damaged Utility Lines by 99 Percent

DALLAS (August 11, 2016) – Did you know that, before you dig, it is required by law to call 811 to have all buried utility lines located and marked? Atmos Energy wants to thank homeowners and excavators alike for observing the law and keeping our communities safe by always calling 811 before digging.

Since 2008, Atmos Energy has seen a 36 percent increase in requests by the public to have underground natural gas lines marked. Once underground utility lines are marked, it is important to take special care around all line markings by digging by hand.

“The greatest risk to our natural gas pipelines is accidental damage while digging,” said John Paris, president of Atmos Energy’s Mid-Tex division. “Even minor damage, such as a scrape, dent, or crease in a pipeline or its coating, can cause a leak.”

Every time the excavating public calls 811 before digging, the chance of hitting an underground utility line decreases to 99.9 percent. When calling 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to their local one-call center, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig.  Professional locators are then sent to the digging site to mark the locations of underground utility-owned lines with flags and spray paint, free of charge.

“Atmos Energy located 1.5 million underground natural gas lines in 2015. We appreciate our customers observing this important safety law. Calling 811 is the law in every state that we serve. All excavators call 811 at least three business days before digging on public or private property,” said Paris.   For more information, visit atmosenergy.com/811 or call811.com.    OR SEE THE FACT SHEET HERE
