On March 5, 2018, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) released the “New General TPDES Permit for Construction Activities.”  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.

Permittees with current (active) authorizations have a 90 days grace period to renew their existing authorization before the grace period ends on June 3, 2018.

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.
