On March 5, 2013 the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) released the “New General TPDES Permit for Construction Activities.”  The permit was signed and effective on February 19, 2013.  This general permit authorizes the discharge of stormwater runoff associated with small and large construction sites and certain non-stormwater discharges into surface water in the state.

The City’s Stormwater Services Division is responsible for enforcing federal, state and local Stormwater Construction permit requirements throughout the City of Abilene.   This includes ensuring that sites are properly permitted and, if required, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans are implemented.  They also ensure that erosion and sediment controls are adequately maintained on these sites.
