SB1241 by Hegar (Relating to the Edwards Aquifer Authority's regulation of wells with limited production capabilities.), As Introduced
The bill would authorize water wells drilled prior to June 1, 2013 for any purpose under Article 1 of the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) Act, to be exempted from EAA requirements to have a permit under certain conditions. The exemption would apply to wells not capable of producing more than 1,250 gallons of water a day; or those not producing more than 1.4 acre-feet of water in a calendar year.
Passage of the bill is not expected to have a significant fiscal impact on the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's budget.
