Tarpley Wastewater Fight Heads to Administrative Judge
During that process, an administrative law judge will hear arguments and rule on whether the TCEQs permit would effectively protect the creek, among other issues. Theyll instead use that treated wastewater for irrigation, he said. It makes absolutely zero sense for me to stand up here tonight and tell you Im never going to discharge and then go turn right around and discharge, Torn told the crowd. A draft permit issued by the TCEQ would require the camp to reuse 75 percent of its treated wastewater for irrigation. However, the TCEQ always takes up the discharge permit issue before making a decision on reuse.therivardreport.com

Where I Live: Far West Side
My husband and I grew up outside of Houston and always knew we wanted to be in the Hill Country. We wanted something with the views of the hills, and my husband wanted to feel like he was in the country. After about a year researching neighborhoods all over the San Antonio area, we were drawn to the Far West Side because it was close to the Government Canyon State National Area, and there were pretty views everywhere. But they were so supportive of our move, and it was our dream to live in the Hill Country, so we took the leap. We also enjoy concerts at Floores Country Store with neighbors or friends who are visiting from out of town.therivardreport.com

Crude Oil Pipeline Averted Over Recharge Zone Points to Lack of State Oversight
The now-defunct plan by Houston-based Enterprise Products Company to build a crude oil pipeline from Midland County to Wilson County crossing the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone was a really bad idea. Enterprise is a midstream natural gas and crude oil pipeline company listed as 89 on the Fortune 500 list. Even officials at the Edwards Aquifer Authority were unaware of the Enterprise pipeline project prior to Gibbons article. Enterprise never publicly disclosed plans to route the crude oil pipeline over some of the states most sensitive recharge features and unspoiled landscape. A crude oil pipeline along such a scenic and undeveloped Hill Country corridor would have caused property values to plummet.therivardreport.com
