The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) renews the Stormwater Multi-Sector General Permit (TXR05) every five years. On August 14, 2021 the current permit will expire and the new permit will go into effect.
Once the new permit goes into effect, existing permit holders will need to file a Notice of Intent (NOI). There is a 90-day grace period allowed by TCEQ after the permit renewal date to complete this.
