Clean Rivers Program
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.
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 since the early 90's as the lead agency for the Upper
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.
