RULE §40.6CWD Movement Restriction Zones

(a) Definitions. In addition to the definitions in §40.1 (relating to Definitions) of this chapter, the following words and terms, when used in this section, shall have the following meanings:

  (1) Check Station--TPWD-established mandatory check stations in any CZ or SZ or any portion of a CZ or SZ for the purpose of collecting biological information on CWD susceptible species taken within a CZ or SZ.

  (2) CWD Containment Zone (CZ)--A geographic area in this state which CWD has been detected or the commission has determined, using the best available science, a high risk of CWD exists or may exist.

  (3) CWD Surveillance Zone (SZ)--A geographic area in the state which the commission, using the best available science, has determined or where there is a risk of CWD existing and surveillance is necessary.

  (4) Exotic CWD Susceptible Species--A non-native cervid species determined to be susceptible to CWD, which means a species that has had a diagnosis of CWD confirmed by an official test conducted by an approved laboratory. This includes but is not limited to North American elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis), red deer (Cervus elaphus), sika deer (Cervus nippon), moose (Alces alces), reindeer and caribou (Rangifer tarandus), muntjac (Muntiacus), and any associated subspecies and hybrids. All mule deer, white-tailed deer, and other native species under the jurisdiction of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are excluded from this definition and application of this section.

  (5) Final processing--The cleaning and processing by more than quarters of CWD susceptible species for cooking or storage purposes.

  (6) High fence premises--A premises enclosed on all sides by a fence adequate to prevent the ingress and egress of all exotic CWD susceptible species.

  (7) Processing facility--A stationary facility designed and constructed to store or process CWD susceptible species.

  (8) TPWD--The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

(b) Declaration of area restricted for CWD. CWD has been detected in susceptible species in different locations in Texas. This creates a high risk for CWD exposure or infection in CWD susceptible species in those geographic areas. In order to protect other areas of the state from the risk of exposure and spread of CWD, restricted areas, such as containment zones and surveillance zones, are created to protect against the spread of and exposure to CWD and have necessary surveillance to epidemiologically assess the risk. The high-risk areas are delineated as follows:

  (1) Containment Zone Boundaries:

    (A) Containment Zone 1. That portion of the state within the boundaries of a line beginning in Culberson County where U.S. Highway (U.S.) 62-180 enters from the State of New Mexico; thence southwest along U.S. 62-180 to Farm-to-Market Road (F.M.) 1111 in Hudspeth County; thence south on F.M. 1111 to I.H. 10 thence west along I.H. 10 to S.H. 20; thence northwest along S.H. 20 to F.M. 1088; thence south along F.M. 1088 to the Rio Grande River; thence northwest along the Rio Grande River to the Texas-New Mexico border.

    (B) Containment Zone 2. That portion of the state within the boundaries of a line beginning where I.H. 40 enters from the State of New Mexico in Deaf Smith County; thence east along I.H. 40 to U.S. 385 in Oldham County; thence north along U.S. 385 to Hartley in Hartley County; thence east along U.S. 87 to County Rd. 47; thence north along C.R. 47 to F.M. 281; thence west along F.M. 281 to U.S. 385; thence north along U.S. 385 to the Oklahoma state line.
