Notice to Oil and Gas Operators: Recycling Treated Domestic Wastewater and Mobile Drinking Water Treatment System Wastewaters

July 18, 2022

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) is revising its program for recycling of domestic wastewater and mobile drinking water treatment system wastewaters at oil and gas sites. An operator may now choose to implement this recycling program as either (1) a district-wide permit, or (2) a location-specific permit. This program change will provide significant flexibility and efficiencies for operators who utilize this program at multiple well sites and does not significantly change the program for operators who do not need that flexibility.
