Requests and public comments due by June 30th
In its notice of the contested case hearing for EOG's Cooke County industrial frac sand processing plant, TCEQ stated that it will hold a second public meeting on EOG's application if "there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator."
The purpose of the public meeting is to "provide the opportunity to submit comment or to ask questions about the application."
Considering that many people were unable even to find parking or standing room at the first public meeting last August, and that changes have been made to the permit application since that time, a second public meeting seems more than justified.
Please submit your requests for a second public meeting to TCEQ. The process is the same as that for the hearing and meeting requests that were placed previously, available through this link: http://www10.tceq.state.tx.us/epic/ecmnts/ (Enter this permit number: 95412)
Remember, the deadline for public comments and meeting requests is June 30.
Please also contact state representative Rick Hardcastle and state senator Craig Estes, and ask them to request a second public meeting on EOG's permit application for its Cooke County frac sand processing facility.
