Clean Rivers Program

stream Restoration what_is_stream_res-1 In 1991, the Texas Legislature passed the Texas Clean  Rivers Act [Senate Bill 818]. The Act was intended to  move Texas towards comprehensive water resources  planning and management to ensure the integrity of  the state’s water supply over the long term. The Clean  Rivers Act requires an ongoing assessment of water  quality issues and management strategies statewide.  The Act established the Texas Clean Rivers Program under the Texas Water Commission (now the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, or TCEQ). The program is funded by fees assessed on wastewater discharge permittees and water rights holders as well as through TCEQ’s own state appropriations.

For more information on the Clean Rivers Program please visit the TCEQ CRP website. This website has information about the statewide program and links to Clean Rivers Program partner websites.


COOPERATIVE MONITORING SCHEDULE

The objective for the Cooperative Monitoring Schedule is to provide a process by which Planning Agencies will coordinate their monitoring activities with the TCEQ and other qualified monitoring organizations within the basin. The coordinated monitoring schedules are developed each spring in order to implement the new schedules for the coming fiscal year.
