The Application Rate Calculator was developed to assist the Wastewater Permitting Section at Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in reviewing wastewater application permits. The calculator creates a 12 month water balance to determine if a specified amount of wastewater can be applied over an area each month without creating an over-saturated field or runoff.

The tool is available for anyone to download to assist in completing a wastewater application permit. In depth training on the calculators use can be provided by attending the Permitting of Alternative Water for Irrigation short course through the Texas A&M School of Irrigation Short Course Program.
