Supporting TMDL and TMDL I-Plan development for Bacteria in the Tidal Segments of the Mission and Aransas Rivers and Their Tributaries
The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) is working with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and local stakeholders to finalize a Total Maximum Daily Load and associated Implementation Plan. Through this project, TWRI will hold public meetings and work with stakeholders to address TCEQ comments as well as make necessary changes that stakeholders feel are needed.

Support for TMDL and TMDL I-Plan for Indicator Bacteria
The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) is working with the local stakeholders to develop a Total Maximum Daily Load and Implementation Plan that will outline an approach on how to best mitigate bacteria impairments. Through this project, TWRI will hold a series of public meetings to solicit input from stakeholders on concerns and management measures that should be included in the Implementation Plan. Stakeholders will have a chance to review and provide comments and changes to the I-Plan at each of the public meetings as the plan is being developed.
The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) has been working with the local stakeholders to determine the most appropriate method to address the water quality impairments. Through this project, TWRI has held public meetings where stakeholders have attended and discussed the current impairment and best approach.
Copano Bay Water Quality Education
The Copano Bay Water Quality Education project provided educational programs and demonstrations for land and livestock owners, coordinating with such programs as the Lone Star Healthy Streams Program for cattlemen. The programs and demonstrations have increased awareness of water quality issues and best management practices (BMPs) that owners can implement to decrease or prevent bacteria from entering waterways.
