Relating to the authorization by the Texas Commission on
Environmental Quality of the discharge, diversion, and transfer or
other reuse of treated brackish groundwater and return flows
derived from treated brackish groundwater.
No fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
HB 724 would require the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to grant the authorization to discharge groundwater and then subsequently divert and reuse water if it is brackish groundwater or return flows derived from treated brackish groundwater and the person is authorized to discharge water into the watercourse or stream.
Texas Action is neutral on HB 724 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
