On September 25, 2015, ANRA held a public hearing to receive comments regarding its intent to amend its OSSF Order to include Angelina County.

On September 29, 2015, ANRA’s Board of Directors held a public meeting to formally consider actions to amend its OSSF Order to include Angelina County. The Board of Directors unanimously approved the measure.

On October 26, 2015, ANRA received notification from the TCEQ that its application to amend its existing OSSF Order to include Angelina County had been approved. The effective date of that approval was October 19, 2015.
