HBA and ACEA hold joint meeting with Austin Watershed Protection Department to discuss Atlas 14

On Monday, the HBA joined the Austin Contractors & Engineers Association for a presentation from the City of Austin Watershed Protection Department to hear the latest on the forthcoming Atlas 14 regulations.  The HBA has been active in working with Watershed Protection on the portions of the bill affecting construction.  However, there are still many concerns on how the new ordinance will be implemented, including grandfathering provisions.

The ordinance is expected to move forward to boards and commissions in late August, with the goal of final adoption in October, nearly one year after the city began work on this issue.
