June 7 New spray paint on the cement culvert located west of Cinco Ranch Blvd.
New ATV tracks east of Mason Rd. north of the Canyon Gate subdivision.
The tracks were located in the bottom of the levy along the water way.
Also observed where there was a small grass fire between Fry Rd. and
Peek Rd. along the gravel portion of the levy by the golf course.

June 6 Several citizen contacts. No observations of motor vehicles.

June 21 Flagged down by a couple walking their dog. They stated they located
some dead animals. The three dead pigs were located at Fry Rd. and Fry
Ct. They had been dragged off of the roadway over to the entrance of the
water treatment center. All three appeared to have been hit by a vehicle.
Contacted Fort Bend County Sheriffs Office Dispatch Center and
advised them to have Road and Bridge pick up the dead animals. Dispatch
advised they would leave a note for them to do it on Monday because
Road and Bridge doesn't work on the weekends.
While traveling on the levy I was flagged down boy a small boy riding his
bike, he stated he lost his dad who was also riding a bike with his brothers
and sister. After getting a brief description of his father I realized I had
just passed him a short time ago. After a few minutes I located his father
and all was well.

June 13 Several citizen contacts. No observations of motor vehicles.

June 20 Several citizen contacts. No observations of motor vehicles.

June 27 Several citizen contacts. No observations of motor vehicles.

Joe B. Allen Under the Dome
Chubbing, Sine Die, Unfinished Business and a Special Session
All sessions of the Texas Legislature are unique. Each session has its own pace
and rhythm, dominant issues, and cast of characters. This is an understatement
for the 81 st Legislative Session. This session was one for the history books.
The session began with a change in leadership in the House. The new Speaker
ran on a platform that promised not to set the policy agenda as his predecessor
had. Instead, he agreed to act as the traffic cop and let "the will of the House"
set the agenda. Speaker Straus made good on these promises. With 76 Republi-
cans and 74 Democrats, he had little choice. To maintain harmony, the
Speaker's committee appointments mirrored the even division of the House.
Thus, every committee that was chaired by a Republican had a Democratic vice-
chair and v"ice versa. The result, with few notable exceptions, was that conten-
tious and partisan bills were bottled up in House committee.
The session began with "voter 10" in the Senate and ended with voter JD in the
House. The Senate made an exception to its two-thirds or "blocker bill" rule to
allow voter ID to pass out of that chamber. When the measure was calendared
to reach the House floor, House Democrats blocked that from happening by
"chubbing." Chubbing is an established practice of killing time, and thus bills,
on the House floor. The goal is to delay or prevent consideration of a bill. This
session, the House Democrats took chubbing to new heights.
The House Local and Consent Calendar is reserved for local bills (such as MUD
creations) and uncontroversial, uncontested matters. Each bill on this calendar
may be debated up to ten minutes. If the debate extends beyond ten minutes,
the bill is removed from the calendar, thereby killing the bilL However, local
bills are rarely debated. Generally only those bills that are marked for" a kill"

ANNUAL WATER QUAUlY FEE HOUSE BILL 1433
Lucio III/Averitt
Relating to the amount of the annual water quality fee imposed on holders of wastewater discharge permits on

fee is to pay expenses of the TCEQ related to: (i) inspecting waste treatment facilities; and (ii) enforcing laws
and rules governing waste discharge and waste treatment facilities, the water resources of the State, and wa-
ter resource management programs. (See Section 26.0291, Water Code.)
• Increases the cap on the TCEQ's water quality fee from $ 75,000 to $100,000 with an annual consumer price
index adjustment for inflation; provided, however, that the cap may not exceed $150,000.

fee. The TCEQ is increasing these fees in anticipation of receiv"lng less "general revenue" from the Legislature.
The cap on the water quality fee benefits the larger wastewater discharge permit holders (such as large cities)
in the State. Without an increase in the cap, these larger permit holders would not experience any increase in
the water quality fee. Small- and medium-sized permit holders argue that the current cap is inequitable and
support an increase in the cap, so that increases in the fee are more evenly distributed.

TAX PAYMENT OPTIONS HOUSE BILL 3646
Hochberg/Patrick
Relating to public school finance and programs.
• Amongst other provisions, amends Section 31.06(a), Property Tax Code, to provide that all taxing entities, in-
cluding water districts, must accept checks, money orders, credit cards and electronic fund transfers for pay-
ment of tax bills. Under prior law, the acceptance of credit cards and electronic fund transfers had been per-
missive.
• With respect to acceptance of credit cards for tax bill payments, existing law provides that a taxing entity may
collect a fee for processing the payment. The fee must be set in an amount that is reasonably related to the
expense incurred in processing the credit card payment, not to exceed five percent of the amount of taxes and
any penalties or interest being paid. The fee is in addition to the amount of taxes, penalties, or interest. If the
payment by the credit card is not honored, the amount of any additional charge against the taxing unit for proc-
essing the credit card invoice is added to the amount of tax due in the same manner as penalties and interest
are added for taxes that are delinquent. The tax lien on the property also secures payment of the amount of
the charge.
• Effective September 1, 2009.

and rhizomes of bermudagrass continue to grow several weeks after the leaves
and stems stop growth.
Turfgrasses In warm frost-free climates bermudagrass remains green throughout
the year, but growth is significantly reduced at the onset of cool nights. The
42 species makes the best growth where average daily temperatures are above
75° F. Optimum daytime temperature for bermudagrass is between 95° and
100° F.
Soil temperature, as influenced by air temperature, is also important to
the growth and development of bermudagrass turf. Soil temperatures above
65° F are required for significant growth of rhizomes, roots, and stolons.
Optimum soil temperature for root growth is around 80" F.
Bermudagrass has a high light requirement and does not grow well under
low light (shaded) conditions. The duration of the light period (day length)
also influences growth and development of bermudagrass. Both increased
light intensity and day length increase rhizome, stolon, and leaf growth in
bermudagrass. At low light intensities (less than 60 percent full sunlight),
bermudagrass develops narrow, elongated leaves; thin upright stems; elon-
gated internodes; and weak rhizomes. Consequently, bermudagrass develops
.3 yery sparse turf under moderately shaded conditions.
Bermudagrass is found in tropical and subtropical climates with 25 to
100 inches of annual rainfall, but it also survives in arid climates along wa-
terways and in irrigated areas. Where ann'Uv rainfall is below 20 inches per
year, bermudagrass requires irrigation to sur~ive.;'BeIInlldagrassdevelops into
a scrnidormant state during vcry dry conditions but has the capability of sur-
VIVlflg exrrcmc ,drollghts. Rlllzomcs of bcrmudagrass can 'lose SO percent OJ
llJore of their weighr and slill r(:TOVCI when favorable moisture develops

Generally, common bermudagrass, or tetraploids of C. dactylon, has the deep-


est root and rhizome penetration and can better withstand prolonged drought
periods.
Common bermudagrass also has the dlaracu::ristic of producing seedheads
IInder stress condItions such as 9rollg]lL, Thus, the seeds provide another
ITlcthod by which the species can ~urvj~e ext rerne JJmpgbt. Some natural bio-
types of C. dactylon produce numerous seeds. The seeds are very small with
about 2 million seeds per pound.
~ermudagrass grows well on a wide variety of soils from heavy clays to
deep sands provided fertility is not limiting. It tolerates both acid and alka-
line soil conditions and is highly tolerant to saline conditions. Bermudagrass
survives some flooding but does best on well drained sites. Although it may
persist under low fertility, bermudagrass has a high nitrogen requirement for
good quality turf.
Bcnnudagrass has numerous turf uses. It has been suggested that if ever a
plant deserved a monument for ItS service LO mankind, it was bermudagrass
for what it has done to prevent soil erosion; to stabIlize ditch banks, road-
sides, and airfields; to beautify landscapes; and to provide a smooth, resilient
playing surface for sports fields and playgrounds. Bermudagrass also pro-
vides hay and pasture for livestock throughout the tropical and subtropical Southern TU1fgrasses
areas of the world.
Turf uses of common bermudagrass include lawns, parks, playgrounds, 43
sports fields, golf course fairways, roadsides, cemeteries, and other general
purpose turf. Hybrid bermudagrass and selections of common bermudagrass
are used for special purposes such as golf greens, bowling greens, tennis courts,
sports fields, and lawns.
J\~~nI!udag,r.i;L~ is well suited to high traffic areas, such as golf courses, sports
fields, and playgrounds. A dense bermudagrass wrf tolerates moderate wear
and compaction and recovers rapidly from wear injury. In full sunlight it
makes a good lawngrass because it responds well to management. Under
moderate fertilization, frequent mowing, ~nd adequate moisture ~~rmuda­
grass forms a dense, fine textured turf. In lowm~int~JlPS!Ul,r~<:l,S,such as
roadsides, dam ~j[es, dirchbapk"s, and airfields,)lt;nnudagr;Jss STabilizes rhe
soi 1 and provides a low growing ground cover. Where ra 1Il fa II is adequate,
hfrrrllidagrass provides a km uJaimenance lUI f fo!' rbest sites. The 'only situ-
ation';her~ bermudagra"ss cannot -b~ used is in moderate to heavily shaded
sites.

VARIETIES
Selections of superior strains of common bermudagrass, natural hybrids be-
tween C. dactylon and C. transvaalensis, and crosses resulting from grass
breeding programs have been released by state universities, the Crop Research
Division of the USDA, and the u.s. Golf Association Green Section (Juska
and Hanson 1964; Youngner and McKell 1972). All of the hybrid ber-
mudagrasses are sterile and must be propagated by sprigs or sad. Some selec-
tions from C. dactylon produce viable seed. Nu-Mex Sahara, Sonesta,
Cheyenne, and Guymon bermudagrass are improved seeded varieties of
bermudagrass. Brief descriptions of the major turf-type bermudagrass vari-
eties follow (table 4-1):
1. Hall's Selection (c. dactylon selection). Collection from a golf green
of Germistown Golf Course in South Africa in 1933 by T. D. Hall. Similar to
common bermudagrass except that Hall's Selection is slower growing and
rarely sets seed. Hall's Selection forms a dark green, dense, and wear-resistant
sad. It is a popular lawngrass in South Africa.
2. Uganda (c. transvaalensis). Very fine-leaved, low-growing variety of
African bermudagrass. Leaf blades are not more than 15 mm wide; stolons
very slender and tend to develop a reddish-purple cast after the first cool
nights in the fall. Uganda tends to develop thatch unless carefully managed.
It is used for golf greens and tennis courts in South Africa and South America
and.for lawns in the southwestern U.S.

Re: Willow Fork Drainage District Outfall Pipe and Manhole Repair at
Mason Road and the Bridge at Creech Elementary

Dear Ms. Garza:

After a visual inspection of the area of concern, it is determined that continuous flow of
water and the age of the CflllP pipe outfall has cause the bottom of the pipe to
deteriorate. Due to the deterioration of the bottom of the pipe, it has caused void areas
around the pipe and at tile end of tile pipe outfall.

Uretek ICR Gulf Coast proposes to provide all labor, equipment and material to seal the
joints that are compromised, void fill around the storm sewer pipes and seal along the
concrete manhole. This will be accomplished by workinn from the inside of the pipe and
injecting the URETEK Star 486 expanding high density polymer behind the wall of the
pipes. sealing tile joint. Tilis patented two component formulation of polyurethane not
only forms a strong seal to the host surface but also fills any voids behind the walls of
the pipe, consolidates, densifies and stabilizes the adjoining soils/sands and outcrops
thru the joint and seals it. Being a closed cell polymer rnatrix that is hydro-insensitive -
unaffected by water-it provides a strong 10n~1-lasting seal that eliminates inflow and
infiltration.

Price: We propose to perform the above scope of work for outfall pipe for the fixed price
of $22,105.00, pius applicable taxes. A cost breakdown is below:
.. Replace bottom of the pipe and seal voids under new bottom = $12,185
=
• Installation of cement stabilized sand under the end of CMP pipe $2,000
=
.. Sealing joints - 65' of 60" CMP pipe $7,920

Warranty: Our normal one year service warranty and 10 year material warranty will
apply.

We are anxious to demonstrate the advantages of our technology for quickly ancl

Re: Willow Fork Drainage District Outfall Pipe and Manhole Repair at
Highland Knolls and Hwy 99

Dear Ms. Garza:

After a visual inspection of the area of concern, it is determined that void areas around
the manhole, pipes and possible joint separation have Gaused the manhole to leak and
possibly to settle.

Uretek ICR Gulf Coast proposes to provide all labor, equipment and material to seal the
joints that are compromised, void fill around the storm sewer pipes and seal along the
concrete manhole. This will be accomplished by workinq from the inside of the pipe and
injecUng the URETEK Star 486 expanding high density polymer behind the wall of the
pipes, sealing the joint. This patented two component formulation of polyurethane not
only forms a strong seal to the host surface but also fiils any voids behind the walls of
the pipe, consolidates, densities and stabilizes the adjoining soilslsands and outcrops
thru the joint and seals it. Being a closed cell polyrl1er matrix that is hydra-insensitive -
unaffected by water-it provides a strong long-lasting seal that eliminates inflow and
infiltration,

Price: We propose to perform the above scope of work for outfall pipe for the fixed price
of $20,021.00, plus applicable taxes. A cost breakdown is below:
G =
Sealing joints - 30' of 42" RCP pipe $6,950
o =
Stabilizing manhole and stopping infiltration - 11 fl deep $3,947
o Sealing joints - 100' of 42" CMP pipe = $9,124

Warranty: Our normal one year service warranty and 10 year material warranty will
apply.

We are anxious to demonstrate the advantages of our technology for quickly and
efficiently resolving issues with underground infrastructure,

Districts' requirements. We did not review the adequacy of the on-site facilities.

Please be advised of the following:

1. Prior to any construction, TCB, Inc (Bruce Baumel, 713-267-2851) and Severn Trent
Services (Gary Schoener, 281-578-4242) must be contacted. Please contact these
individuals at least 48 hours in advance of construction,
2. Prior to any connection, a Reservation of Capacity is required to be granted by Cinco
MUD NO.1.
3. Sewer and water connections and fees are handled by Severn Trent Services (Gary
Schoener, 281-578-4242). TCB, Inc. (Bruce Baumel, 713-267-2851) handles the
observation of the storm drainage connections.
4. Any disturbance of or damage to existing Cinco MUD No. 12, Cinco MUD NO.1 or
Willow Fork Drainage District facilities or unauthorized connections thereto may
result in a stoppage of work, uncovering, repair, or replacement of those facilities.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) issued the Phase II Permit for Willow Fork
Drainage District (TPDES Permit No. TXR040196) in January of 2009. As required by the Phase II
MS4 Permit, Willow Fork Drainage District has been implementing a Storm Water Management
Program (SWMP) and has chosen to implement the following items in Permit Year 3 (August 13, 2009
to August 12, 2010):

Section 1 - Public Education and Outreach on Storm Water Impacts Minimum Control Measure
1.3.1 Storm Water Public Education Print Materials
1.3.2 Website Storm Water Quality Messages
1.3.3 Contractor Employee Training
1.3.4 Storm Water Public Education Signage

Section 2 - Public Involvement/Participation Minimum Control Measure


2.3.4 Public Involvement and Participation

Section 3 - Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination Minimum Control Measure


3.3.2 Storm Drainage System Map
3.3.3 Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination Program
3.3.4 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event

Section 4 - Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control Minimum Control Measure
4.3.1 Site Plan Review Program
4.3.2 Construction Site Inspection Program
4.3.3 Reporting Hotline
4.3.4 Distribution of Storm Water Brochure with Plan Sets

Section 5 - Post-Construction Storm Water Management in New Development and


Redevelopment Minimum Control Measure
5.3.1 Revise WFDD Rules and Regulations
5.3.2 Plan Review
5.3.3 Distribution of Brochure with Plan Sets
5.3.4 HomeownerlYard Service Education Materials

6.3.7 Facility Inspection Program

The most in-depth item in Permit Year 3 is the implementation of the Illicit Discharge Detection and
Elimination Program. This effort entails routine dry weather screening of storm water outfalls that will
assist in the identification of suspected illicit discharges. The location of the outfalls will be verified,
and the structure will be photographed. The information will be updated and maintained along with
site visit information, chemical screening data, current status of the investigations, physical attributes
such as; construction material type, configuration, size, etc., and sample results. All information will be
provided annually for inclusion in the annual report.

regulatory developments and share ideas and experiences in developing and implementing storm
water management programs. This year the conference was held at the George R. Brown
Convention Center in Houston, Texas. State breakout sessions are conducted during the
conference which provides the opportunity for the states' environmental/regulatory agencies to
address their constituents with updates, to answer any questions. or to hear any concerns as they
may relate to the state's storm water quality permits or programs The Texas Breakout Session
at this year's conference was presented June 23, 2009 by Ms. Jaya Zyman-Ponebshek, TCEQ
Team Leader, Stormwater and Pretreatment Team. Attached is a hardcopy of the power point

Field operations will continue to inspect facilities to identify non compliance.
Some MS4s applied for an individual permit before the general permit was

MS4s continue to have the option of applying for an individual permit, but it is
