TPDES Stormwater Professionals Legislation in House Committee

A bill, HB 3289, has been introduced in the Texas Legislature regarding “the licensing of professionals engaged in Texas pollutant discharge elimination system-related stormwater activity.” This bill would amend Chapter 26, Water Code, to create a licensing program for TPDES (Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) stormwater professionals.

This bill is currently in the Natural Resources House Committee and is being watched closely by the majority of water agencies in Texas.

In the North Texas region, NCTCOG may discuss this piece of legislation at the Regional Stormwater Management Coordinating Council meeting on May 22, 2013.

More information, including the text of the bill in its current state can be found here.
