Texas Integrated Report of Surface Water Quality for Clean Water Act Sections 305(b) and 303(d)

The Texas Integrated Report evaluates the quality of surface waters in the state and provides resource managers with a tool for making informed decisions when directing agency programs.

The Texas Integrated Report describes the status of Texas’ natural waters based on historical data and the extent to which they attain the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards.

The Texas Integrated Report satisfies the requirements of the federal Clean Water Act Sections 305(b) and 303(d). The TCEQ produces a new report every two years in even-numbered years, as required by law. The 303(d) List must be approved by the EPA before it is final.

An advisory group works with the TCEQ on biennial reviews of the Guidance for Assessing Texas Surface Water Quality. This guidance is included with each Integrated Report.

If you would like to receive notifications concerning the Texas Integrated Report, including notifications about opportunities to provide public comment or notifications about advisory group meetings, then please subscribe to our TCEQ GovDelivery topic “Assessment: Surface Water Quality Assessment Advisory Work Group.” You can find this topic on the TCEQ GovDelivery quick subscribe page under the Water Quality topic group.
