In response to public concern, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is holding an online public meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 to discuss the City of Fort Worth’s permit request for a wastewater treatment plant that will impact Mary’s Creek, the Clear Fork downstream of Lake Benbrook and the confluence of the Trinity River in Fort Worth.
TRWD opposes discharging water from the Reclamation Facility into Mary’s Creek because water quality computer modeling by environmental experts predict it will harm the Trinity River’s water quality.
Members of the public who would like to ask questions or provide comments during the meeting may access the meeting via webcast here and entering Webinar ID 911-820-667. TCEQ recommends that you join the webinar and register for the public meeting at least 15 minutes before the meeting begins. The TCEQ meeting notice can be found here.
Members of the public may also provide a written comment. In the first box enter the permit number at issue: WQ0015668001 (hint: after the WQ, those are zeros, not the letter ‘O’). In the comment section, TCEQ needs to know if an individual supports or opposes the permit and how the individual is specifically harmed.
