Full Public Notice

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District (USACE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 6 (EPA R6) are releasing this Public Notice to announce the implementation of an interagency workgroup Partnering Agreement. The goal of this agreement is to make the permit evaluation process for future large water supply projects in Texas more efficient and predictable. The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), while not a party to the Agreement, will be a principal contributor and facilitating agency in  development of some of the products associated with the Agreement.The Water Supply Working Group (WSWG), consisting of the three agencies,formulated the following mission statement: “To examine the review process for large water supply projects in Texas and to identify actions that will make the process clearer and more predictable for permit applicants and stakeholders.” The USACE and EPA R6 are soliciting comments on the 7 “Action Items” identified in Paragraph IV of the attached Agreement. The actions in the Partnering Agreement will inform the permitting process for future large water supply projects in Texas. It should be noted that the Federal agencies are seeking information to potentially inform future applicants and are NOT promulgating new rules related to their permit evaluation processes nor modifying existing rules. The Partnering Agreement is a non-binding agreement between two Federal agencies and is NOT associated with any formal rulemaking process.
