Carancahua Bay

Carancahua Bay is impaired due to elevated levels of bacteria, and West Carancahua Creek is impaired due to depressed dissolved oxygen. The issue can negatively affect recreation and aquatic life in the watershed. We along with local stakeholders are currently working to develop a watershed protection plan that will address these impairments.

In addition to the watershed protection plan, we are working with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and stakeholders to develop a total maximum daily load to determine Carancahua Bay’s capacity to handle bacteria loads and still meet water quality standards.
