TCEQ http://ketr.org en Water board won't get final word on Marvin Nichols Reservoir http://ketr.org/post/water-board-wont-get-final-word-marvin-nichols-reservoir <p>Northeast Texas Municipal Water District administrator Walt Sears discusses the three hurdles that any new reservoir in Texas must clear. A project must first be included in the state water plan, which is published by the Texas Water Development Board. Then, another state agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, must issue permits for the project. Finally, the new reservoir must receive federal approval.</p> Mon, 02 Jun 2014 13:13:59 +0000 Mark Haslett 54364 at http://ketr.org Water board won't get final word on Marvin Nichols Reservoir No flow standards for Sulphur, Cypress, Red River Basins http://ketr.org/post/no-flow-standards-sulphur-cypress-red-river-basins <p>Senate Bill 3 established "environmental flow standards" for river basins associated with a river that flows into the Gulf of Mexico in Texas. But for some rivers in the northern part of the state, no such standards are in place.</p><p>The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality must decide on acceptable flow standards in those river basins on a case-by-case basis. River basins in Northeast Texas with no established flow standards are the Red, the Sulphur and the Cypress.</p><p></p> Mon, 24 Mar 2014 12:55:36 +0000 Mark Haslett 51117 at http://ketr.org No flow standards for Sulphur, Cypress, Red River Basins Lake Ralph Hall permit approved http://ketr.org/post/lake-ralph-hall-permit-approved <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">A long-anticipated plan for a new lake in southeastern&nbsp;</span>Fannin<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> County – Lake Ralph Hall – received state approval today.</span> Tue, 24 Sep 2013 16:50:47 +0000 Mark Haslett 43310 at http://ketr.org Lake Ralph Hall permit approved Lake Ralph Hall plan clears hurdle http://ketr.org/post/lake-ralph-hall-plan-clears-hurdle <p>The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality will be the next agency to review the plan for Lake Ralph Hall, which supporters say would be an environmental boon as well as a needed water source.
