|RULE §358.5||Groundwater and Surface Water Use Surveys|
The executive administrator shall conduct surveys at least annually of persons and/or entities using groundwater and surface water for municipal, industrial, power generation, or mining purposes to gather data to be used for long-term water supply planning. The survey instrument will identify which responses are required and which are optional. The executive administrator will send the surveys to the appropriate recipients by first-class mail, electronic mail, or both. Recipients shall return the survey to the executive administrator within 60 days of the postmark date or electronic mail sent date. Surveys may be returned to the executive administrator electronically. The executive administrator shall determine if the survey is administratively complete. A survey is administratively complete if all required responses are provided. Incomplete surveys will be returned to the recipient, who will have 60 days from the new postmark date or electronic mail sent date to complete the items found deficient and return the survey to the executive administrator. A person or entity that fails to return their survey within 60 days or correct a survey that is not administratively complete within 60 days is ineligible for funding from board programs. Ineligibility will remain until the incomplete survey instruments are submitted to the executive administrator and determined to be administratively complete. Further, a person who fails to complete and return the survey commits an offense that is punishable as a Class C misdemeanor, pursuant to Texas Water Code §16.012(m).
