Edwards Aquifer: Innovative Technology Use and Evaluation

The TCEQ encourages development and use of innovative, cost-effective stormwater-management technologies.

Implementation of best management practices not discussed in Complying with the Edwards Aquifer Rules: Technical Guidance on Best Management Practices (publication RG-348) must be approved by the executive director of the TCEQ. Approval will be contingent on submission of objective, verifiable data that supports the claimed removal efficiency of total suspended solids. Chapter 4 of RG-348 presents a testing protocol to assess the performance of new stormwater-treatment technologies. 

The Edwards Aquifer Protection Program Innovative Technology Evaluation Application was created to allow for streamlined submission of applications for evaluation of innovative technologies. It is available as a fillable form in Word format and as a document in portable document format (PDF).
