NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENT ON FINAL REPORT Recreational Use Attainability Analysis for Lilly Creek (0409A) in the Cypress Creek River Basin

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has made available for public comment on the Recreational Use Attainability Analysis for Lilly Creek (0409A) in the Cypress Creek River Basin, within Upshur and Camp counties.

A use-attainability analysis (UAA) evaluates designated or presumed uses if there is reason to believe the standards for a water body are inappropriate due to local conditions. A Recreational Use-Attainability Analysis (RUAA) is a specific type of UAA that is conducted to evaluate and determine what category of recreational use is appropriate for a particular water body. RUAAs are typically site-specific studies that assess reasonably attainable recreational uses based on the physical and flow characteristics of a stream—such as water depth and persistence of flow. Supporting information, including surveys of individuals and organizations with firsthand knowledge of a water body, is also collected to assess historical and existing patterns of recreational use.

If you would like to comment on the report or have information on current or past recreation activities occurring on the water body, comments will be accepted until September 15, 2023. Please reference RUAA Lilly Creek with submitted comments. TCEQ will not issue a formal response to comments at this stage.

The reports are located on the TCEQ website at:

Comments can be submitted via email to Bonnie Evans at: or mailed to: Bonnie Evans, Water Quality Standards Group, MC-234, Water Quality Planning Division, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, P.O. Box 13087, Austin TX 78711-3087

After the public comment period, TCEQ will consider these comments for the draft recommendation. There will be another comment period for the draft recommendation.
