Clean Rivers Program
The Texas Clean Rivers Program is a state fee funded water quality monitoring, data assessment and public
outreach program administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The program is coordinated through the TCEQ and regional water authorities.  The UCRA has partnered with
the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) Clean Rivers Program as the lead agency for the Upper Colorado
River Basin since the 1990's.  UCRA staff monitors stream segments within the basin on an on-going basis and
data is regularly submitted to LCRA.   Work within the Clean Rivers Program (CRP) is conducted in two year
funding cycles.  The new contract cycle will begin on September 1, 2017. 

The Clean Rivers Program has played an integral part in improvement of water quality for the Upper basin. 
The program encourages local stakeholder participation to ensure that pertinent issues are continually
addressed.  As a result of active steering committee participation, the UCRA's upper basin program has been
successful in identifying specific water quality problems and solutions to obtain additional grant funds to address
those needs.

Program goals:  Encourage comprehensive and cooperative watershed planning; Enhance public participation
and outreach; Maintain a basin-wide water quality monitoring program; Provide a scientific response to water
quality problems; Identify, analyze, and report on water quality issues and potential causes of pollution.
