FOR TPDES PERMIT FOR MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER RENEWAL PERMIT NO.WQ0010471001
APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. City of Streetman, P.O. Box 7, Streetman, Texas 75859-0007, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a renewal of TPDES Permit No. WQ0010471001, which authorizes the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 80,000 gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on September 29, 2011.
The facility is located west of Farm-to-Market Road 80 and east of the Fort Worth & Denver Railway (F W & D RR) on the north bank of Sloan Creek in the southern portion of the City of Streetman in Freestone County, Texas 75859. The treated effluent is discharged to Sloan Creek; thence to Tehuacana Creek; thence to Trinity River Above Lake Livingston in Segment No. 0804 of the Trinity River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is no significant aquatic life use for Sloan Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 0804 are high aquatic life use and contact recreation. All determinations are preliminary and subject to additional review and/or revisions.
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 Streetman City Office, 204 East Main Street, Streetman, Texas. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility’s general location is provided as a public courtesy and not part of the application or notice. For exact location, refer to application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=31.887777&lng=-96.323333&zoom=13&type=r
PUBLIC COMMENT / PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments or request a public meeting about this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. TCEQ holds a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing.
OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for request- ing a contested case hearing or reconsideration of the Executive Director’s decision. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court.
TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name; address, phone number; applicant’s name and permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; and the statement “[I/we] request a contested case hearing.” If the request for contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group’s representative for receiving future correspondence; identify an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the proposed facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member’s location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are germane to the group’s purpose.
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 will only grant a contested case hearing on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commission’s decision on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues that were raised in timely filed comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. TCEQ may act on an application to renew a permit for discharge of wastewater without providing an opportunity for a contested case hearing if certain criteria are met.
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 applica- tion and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.
MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments, a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Director’s decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this specific application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. If you wish to be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below.
All written public comments and public meeting requests must be submitted to the Office of the Chief Clerk, MC 105, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, TX 78711-3087 or electronically at www.tceq.texas.gov/about/comments.html
within 30 days from the date of newspaper publication of this notice.

To My customers and friends, our limited workforce is requiring me to scale back.
I will no longer be handling Insurance Collision Claims. I will still be handling customer pay and company pay body work, glass, door handles, mirrors and all O.E.M. parts.
My tire center will continue in full. All tires, all sizes, wheels, flat repairs, alignment, brakes, shocks, oil changes and front end repair service.
I’m beefing up my selection of used tires and truck accessories inventory now that I have room, to include grill guards, bumper replacements, tool boxes, nerf bars, floor mats, ETC.
