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
Colorado River Basin. UCRA staff monitors stream segments within the basin and data is submitted to LCRA. The
new two year contract cycle began on September 1, 2017.
The Clean Rivers Program plays an integral part in improvement of water quality for the upper basin. The program
encourages local stakeholder participation which ensures that current issues are continually brought to the forefront.
As a result of active stakeholder participation, UCRA's Upper Basin program has been very successful in identifying
specific water quality issues in order to create measures to address those needs.
