Water rates are likely to go up over the next five years in San Antonio.
Former EPA regional administrator Al Armendariz says courts got it wrong in striking down pollution rules – “Armendariz, who resigned as Region 6 administrator earlier this year and now works on an anti-coal campaign with the Sierra Club, said the agency will just rewrite and reapply the cross-state air pollution rule on coal plant emissions, as well as the agency’s rejection of Texas’ flexible approach to air permits.” — Dallas Morning News
SAWS expects rates rising for next 5 years – “But just how much will be determined by how badly residents want green grass and how tolerant they are of drought restrictions.” — San Antonio Express-News
Lawmakers tell feds to speed up LNG export decision – “The move — which follows letters by lawmakers representing other areas that have seen a surge in natural gas drilling — comes after the Energy Department announced another delay in a long-awaited study of the issue that will guide future export decisions.” — Fuel Fix
