TCEQ RELEASES STAFF GUIDANCE FOR DESALINATION PROJECTS
In response to stakeholder input on the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s (TCEQ) process of approving desalination projects, TCEQ has developed a streamlined groundwater desalination project review process.
This improved process will continue to ensure that the required quality and quantity of drinking water are provided by these projects. TCEQ will now allow the use of computer modeling in lieu of on-site pilot studies for reverse osmosis filtration treatment for secondary contaminants from a groundwater source.
