Event Description

Wastewater is one of the biggest challenges facing the Hill Country. New and growing entities producing and treating wastewater-- from new housing developments to youth camps-- need wastewater disposal permits from TCEQ in order to discharge treated wastewater into rivers, apply it to land for irrigation, or reuse it for other purposes. TCEQ has a public participation process for new and amended permit applications, but that process can be confusing and difficult to navigate.

On February 1st at 12PM CST, attorney Lauren Ice will join us for an interactive conversation on how to navigate the TCEQ wastewater permitting process, from accessing the permit application materials to requesting a public meeting and contested case hearing. We’ll hear about her experience representing clients who have contested permits, both successfully and unsuccessfully, and leave time for Q&A. Whether you’re following a specific wastewater permit, or simply curious to learn about the process, we hope you’ll join us!
