Quality Assurance and Monitoring Procedures for Surface Water Quality Monitoring

TCEQ prepares and maintains documents that guide the collection and management of surface water quality data in Texas.

Quality Assurance Documents

Surface water quality projects involving the generation, acquisition, and use of environmental data are planned through the development of Quality Assurance Project Plans (QAPPs) or other planning documents. These documents are developed by project managers, quality assurance staff, technical staff, management, and contractors using a systematic planning process.
