TWRI is working with communities within Matagorda Basin watersheds to address water quality concerns. Current projects include

These watersheds support locally and regionally important agriculture communities, marine and shellfish fisheries, and recreation and tourism activities. However, water quality issues threaten the viability of these water-dependent sectors. We are working with local stakeholders to identify, develop and implement locally compatible strategies to protect water resources and traditional land uses.
