TWRI is working with communities within Matagorda Basin watersheds to address water quality concerns. Watersheds we’re working in currently:
- Tres Palacios Watershed Protection Plan Implementation
- Lavaca Watershed Protection Plan Implementation
- Carancahua Bay Watershed Protection Plan Implementation
- Arenosa & Garcitas Creeks Watershed Protection Plan Development
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.
