TCEQ is seeking comments from the public and you can be sure that industry will weigh in heavily too.
On April 8, 2010 the TCEQ will conduct a stakeholder meeting to receive comments on the development of a standard permit for oil and gas production facilities and the concurrent modification of the Chapter 106 permit by rule, Section 106.352, Oil and Gas Production Facilities. The meeting will be held at 9:00 a.m. in Bldg. E, Room 201S at the TCEQ central office located at 12100 Park 35 Circle, Austin.

How can the TCEQ be stakeholders when they are a government agency? Are not the stakeholders the citizens of Texas who pay their salaries? I am oh so confused.
The way I read it is that we (the peasants) are the stakeholders. If this thing involves doing away with the very bad and worthless PBR's, especially .352, then that is a good thing. Am trying to click on "HERE" and nothing happens! Help.
You have to right click on your mouse. There are two buttons at the top of your mouse click on the right and it will guide you how to open up the page. anymore problems and let me know email@example.com and I will help anyway I can. It is very confusing at time but you can do it. I know because somehow I manage to muddle thru.
Found it in the link. It does include the .352. This .352 PBR is nearly worthless and needs to be ammended, strengthened and made to apply only to very small facilities and the facilities that it applies to must be accumulated over a rather large and inclusive area.
Yes well that is the information which is given and I hope it provided will help you along the path you wish to followl
What about noise from O&G facilities? Noise emissions need to be included. Since noise travels in the air, it could be included as just another air pollutant where limits are set. Especially the Low Frequency Noise (LFN) needs to be included, so that limits can be set.
Absolutely! We all need to include noise in our comments. We need to get organized and make sure we get the word out and do it effectively.
OUR Noise in Denton at Rayzor Ranch was not to exceed 79 decimal. We found at several times during the fracturing process the numbers were greater than 79 dec. That issue became a battle but I raised so much hell the last time they are driving thru the neighborhood testing when it is not needed, I will still be there with my on personel noise monitor just to make sure all is well in good in the land of noise.
Everyone in this neighborhood is so upset because the
Denton County fire marshal's staff told us to go inside, close the windows, and turn up the TV.
The Republican convention was going on so that added misery to suffering.
OH we will get thru this also we always have.
Hope your meter reads LFN (low
frequency noise) as that can cause
VAD (vibro acoustic disease).
Noise laws were delegated to the
states in 1982, so far only 5
states have acted on this, Texas
is not one of them.
