The Commission on Environmental Quality proposed to add 30 Tex. Admin. Code §§36.1 - 36.8, Suspension or Adjustment of Water Rights During Drought or Emergency Water Shortage. The rule would implement recent action by the legislature to allow executive director to temporarily suspend or adjust water rights during times of drought or other emergency shortage of water. There will be a public hearing December 1, 2011, and the deadline for comment is December 5. See http://www.sos.state.tx.us/texreg/pdf/backview/1104/1104is.pdf (pp. 7463-68).
