Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Receives $480,000 for River and Stream Analysis
Analysis is part of a comprehensive national survey
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $480,000 to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to perform a survey of Texas’ rivers and streams, part of a comprehensive national survey.
Functioning as a follow-up to the 2004 Wadeable Streams Assessment, the analysis will allow TCEQ to manage water quality by assessing river and stream conditions, building state capacity for monitoring and assessment and promoting collaboration across jurisdictional boundaries. Working with the EPA, TCEQ’s analysis will also help establish a national baseline for future environmental evaluations.
