Matagorda Basin

Tres Palacios Creek watershed is part of the larger Matagorda Bay watershed along the Texas Gulf Coast. The tidal portion of the creek, which primarily occupies part of Matagorda and Wharton counties, is currently designated by the state as impaired because of elevated bacteria concentrations periodically found there.

The Texas Water Resources Institute and local stakeholders are working together to develop a watershed-based strategy to reduce bacterial pollution and improve water quality in the Tres Palacios Creek.
