			<description>Green Creek site. EMRS. County Road 269, Dublin, TX 76446

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=701

Environmental Monitoring and Response System – CAMS 701 (Green Creek), CAMS 702 (Bosque at Clifton), CAMS 703 (Leon at Gatesville), CAMS 704 (Resley Creek), CAMS 725 (Bosque at SH6), CAMS 726 (Scarborough Creek), CAMS 728 (Little Duffau Creek), and CAMS 765 (Un-named Tributary of Little Duffau Creek)

Environmental Issue(s):  The TCEQ Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network (CWQMN) was initiated in 2001 with four sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds.  The Bosque and Leon River watersheds were selected because of concerns related to impact of dairy wastes on the rivers and downstream water supplies including Lake Waco.  

Parameters Monitored: In July 2004, TCEQ initiated the Environmental Monitoring and Response System (EMRS) in these watersheds by expanding the initial sites with the addition of automated equipment to analyze selected nutrients (total reactive phosphorus, nitrate, and ammonia) in an effort to detect point and nonpoint pollutions sources to target field investigations using the data from these sites. 

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The EMRS sites were designed to monitor environmental data and transmit the data to Austin and send electronic notifications to the Stephenville Field Office when data exceeds established thresholds in order to target field investigations. During the first year, it was determined that these four stations monitored very large areas and were not effective in targeting field investigations. In 2005, TCEQ began expanding EMRS to micro watersheds in an attempt to achieve the project’s stated purpose of targeting field investigations of dairy-related pollution events. These sites are commonly on tributaries that are dry except during and following significant rainfall events.  Ultimately, EMRS included eight sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds; however, one site was severely damaged by floods (Leon River at Gatesville) and deleted.

Data Use: All CWQMN sites are being reviewed during FY10 to determine if they are meeting their intended purpose and to determine whether the individual sites should continue monitoring as currently configured, if they should be modified, or if they should be deleted.  The reviews are conducted by a team representing the Water Quality Planning Division and Field Operations Support Division. The EMRS sites are being reviewed as a group. The remaining seven sites remain in operation.

Operator: TCEQ staff from Region 4, Stephenville field office, operate CAMS 701, 703, 726, 728, and 765.  The Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research (TIAER) operate CAMS 702 and 725 under contract with TCEQ using CWA 319(h) grant funds. The operators are well trained and diligent in operation of the sites.

Other Issues: The Greenspan Aqualab nutrient analyzers are complex systems requiring significant support from the manufacturer and the manufacturer’s local representatives.  Greenspan is understaffed and numerous repairs have been delayed due to availability of Greenspan and Greenspan parts.  Many of the parts must be shipped from Australia.

Recommendations: The review team invited TCEQ stakeholders to discuss the EMRS project as a whole and the individual sites.  An electronic survey was distributed in February and an internal stakeholder meeting was conducted on March 5, 2010, to solicit input.  Based on the survey and the meeting results, three (3) EMRS sites had significant support to continue and four (4) sites had minimal or no support to continue from the internal stakeholders. The recommendations are summarized below by site.

CAMS 70 Green Creek - Delete site because of poor location to target field investigations. Consider quarterly sampling of site. Surplus nutrient analyzer or part-out to support other sites.</description>

			<description>CAMS 709 - Pecos River Near Coyanosa

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=709

FY10Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network 
Site Review Summary

Environmental Issue(s):  There are a number of environmental issues in the Pecos River watershed including elevated total dissolved solids (salinity), toxic golden alga blooms, and low dissolved oxygen.

CAMS 709, Pecos River Near Coyanosa, is part of a “network” designed and implemented to evaluate these issues over hundreds of river miles. Other sites associated with this site are CAMS 710 (Pecos River at Pecos),  CAMS 729 (Pecos River above Terrell/Val Verde County Line), CAMS 735 (Pecos River at Sheffield), and CAMS 764 (Independence Creek at the headspring).

Collectively, these sites provide continuous water quality and discharge data to monitor salinity, monitor persistent low dissolved oxygen, correlate water quality with changing aquatic communities, and support the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan.

Parameters Monitored: Specific Conductance, Temperature, pH, and dissolved oxygen are monitored by TCEQ using Greenspan CS4-1200 sondes, datalogger, solar power, and wireless communication.  USGS monitors discharge at this site for TCEQ under contract.

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The environmental issues in the watershed are long-term issues which TCEQ, TSSWCB, and other entities are working to address.  Low dissolved oxygen concentrations may be a naturally occurring phenomenon; however, a strong dataset is required to support any recommendation to revise water quality standards.  Golden alga blooms were first observed in the Pecos River and they persist today; golden alga blooms are believed to be associated with saline waters in this watershed.  The TSSWCB is implementing a watershed protection plan to manage water quality and water quantity in the Pecos River watershed by control/eradication of salt cedar (Tamerisk sp.), an invasive species that is replacing native plants, consuming large volumes of water and increasing the salinity of the Pecos River.

Data Use: Data from this and associated sites document long-term trends and changes in water quality in the Pecos River.  The data is used to support research and investigation into golden alga blooms.  This data supports work by the multi-agency Pecos River Salinity Advisory Group and the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan by monitoring changes in discharge and salinity during implementation of salt cedar management practices.  These sites support TCEQ’s Rio Grand Initiative (GI-394) in the overall contribution to Amistad Reservoir.  The data is available to local irrigators to determine the suitability of water in the river to irrigate crops.

Operator: TCEQ R-7 (Midland) staff (Greg Larson) has operated the water quality portion of this site since September 2004. He currently operates three additional sites on the Pecos River and one at the headwaters of Independence Creek. He is diligent in his operation and maintenance of the site. Operator logs are complete and current.  USGS monitors discharge at the site for TCEQ under contract.

Other Issues: Changes to Greg’s workload required a reduction in the frequency of visits to the site. Plans are underway to modify the site with a compressor to remove sediment between site visits. All of the equipment and supplies for this modification are in-house.

The flow station is costly to operate and maintain. The future of the flow station depends on funding. Currently, the site has funding through 8/31/2010 procedures.

Recommendations: 
1) Discontinue monitoring pH and DO at the site. 
2) Continue monitor temperature and specific conductance at the site.  
3) Install compressed air silt/sediment disrupter at the site.
4) Conduct partial site audit, training visit, and site evaluation during FY10.</description>

CAMS 720 – Rio Grande at Castalon.
Environmental issues in the Upper Rio Grande Project area include elevated salinity, low DO and associated fish kills, varying flow conditions, diminished biological communities, golden alga blooms, flood flow predictions, recreational river runners.

This site is part of a “network” required to evaluate problems that extend over hundreds of river miles. Sites include: CAMS 719 RG at Ft. Quitman; CAMS 720 Rio Grande at Castalon; 721 RG at Rio Grande Village; 757 RG Above Rio Conchos; 758 RG Below Rio Conchos; and, 759 RG at Fosters Weir. Currently, these sites are monitoring DO, Temp, pH, specific conductance, gage height, and flow. 

These sites were deployed to address the following water quality issues:
-Increasing salinity
-Low dissolved oxygen
-Water quality standards changes
-Diminishing aquatic communities
-Flood prediction (NOAA/NWS)
-Reintroduction of the Rio Grande silvery minnow, a long-term effort by USFWS
-Supports efforts defined in TCEQ’s Rio Grande Initiative (GI-394).
 
Since early 2000, Segment 2307 has been impaired for chloride and total dissolved solids. In 2010 Segment 2306 will be listed as impaired for TDS, chloride, and sulfate. The need for long-term continuous monitoring is needed as the salinity issue moves downstream and getting closer to impacting Amistad Reservoir. 

The data is used to capture long-term changes in water quality based on changing flow conditions from drought to floods.  The sites and data support the TCEQ’s Rio Grande Initiative (GI-394). The sites gather long-term data needed to make accurate changes to the water quality standards related to increasing total dissolved solids and to support bi-national efforts to address increasing salinity. The sites also support research into the cause of low DO and associated fish kills during high flow events and to document the diminished aquatic biological community (fish and benthics) when compared to other sites in the upper portion of the Rio Grande. Golden alga related blooms have also occurred in the Upper Rio Grande.

Beyond TCEQ, flow data is used by NOAA/NWS to predict flooding.  The National Parks Service (NPS) is using data to access funding for research in the Wild and Scenic River portion of the Rio Grande. NPS is also conducting research on the spring flow in the lower canyons of the Rio Grande, essential to assessing changes in water quality from upstream to downstream, and relies on data from these sites.

CAMS 720 should remain deployed as a long-term CWQMN site.</description>

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=725

Environmental Monitoring and Response System – CAMS 701 (Green Creek), CAMS 702 (Bosque at Clifton), CAMS 703 (Leon at Gatesville), CAMS 704 (Resley Creek), CAMS 725 (Bosque at SH6), CAMS 726 (Scarborough Creek), CAMS 728 (Little Duffau Creek), and CAMS 765 (Un-named Tributary of Little Duffau Creek)

Environmental Issue(s):  The TCEQ Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network (CWQMN) was initiated in 2001 with four sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds.  The Bosque and Leon River watersheds were selected because of concerns related to impact of dairy wastes on the rivers and downstream water supplies including Lake Waco.  

Parameters Monitored: In July 2004, TCEQ initiated the Environmental Monitoring and Response System (EMRS) in these watersheds by expanding the initial sites with the addition of automated equipment to analyze selected nutrients (total reactive phosphorus, nitrate, and ammonia) in an effort to detect point and nonpoint pollutions sources to target field investigations using the data from these sites. 

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The EMRS sites were designed to monitor environmental data and transmit the data to Austin and send electronic notifications to the Stephenville Field Office when data exceeds established thresholds in order to target field investigations. During the first year, it was determined that these four stations monitored very large areas and were not effective in targeting field investigations. In 2005, TCEQ began expanding EMRS to micro watersheds in an attempt to achieve the project’s stated purpose of targeting field investigations of dairy-related pollution events. These sites are commonly on tributaries that are dry except during and following significant rainfall events.  Ultimately, EMRS included eight sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds; however, one site was severely damaged by floods (Leon River at Gatesville) and deleted.

Data Use: All CWQMN sites are being reviewed during FY10 to determine if they are meeting their intended purpose and to determine whether the individual sites should continue monitoring as currently configured, if they should be modified, or if they should be deleted.  The reviews are conducted by a team representing the Water Quality Planning Division and Field Operations Support Division. The EMRS sites are being reviewed as a group. The remaining seven sites remain in operation.

Operator: TCEQ staff from Region 4, Stephenville field office, operate CAMS 701, 703, 726, 728, and 765.  The Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research (TIAER) operate CAMS 702 and 725 under contract with TCEQ using CWA 319(h) grant funds. The operators are well trained and diligent in operation of the sites.

Other Issues: The Greenspan Aqualab nutrient analyzers are complex systems requiring significant support from the manufacturer and the manufacturer’s local representatives.  Greenspan is understaffed and numerous repairs have been delayed due to availability of Greenspan and Greenspan parts.  Many of the parts must be shipped from Australia.

Recommendations: The review team invited TCEQ stakeholders to discuss the EMRS project as a whole and the individual sites.  An electronic survey was distributed in February and an internal stakeholder meeting was conducted on March 5, 2010, to solicit input.  Based on the survey and the meeting results, three (3) EMRS sites had significant support to continue and four (4) sites had minimal or no support to continue from the internal stakeholders. The recommendations are summarized below by site.

			<description>CAMS 729 - Pecos River above Terrell/Val Verde County Line

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=729

FY10Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network 
Site Review Summary

Environmental Issue(s):  There are a number of environmental issues in the Pecos River watershed including elevated total dissolved solids (salinity), toxic golden alga blooms, and low dissolved oxygen.

CAMS 729, Pecos River above Terrell/Val Verde County Line, is part of a “network” designed and implemented to evaluate these issues over hundreds of river miles. Other sites associated with this site are CAMS 709 (Pecos River at Coyanosa),  CAMS 710 (Pecos River Near Coyanosa), CAMS 735 (Pecos River at Sheffield), and CAMS 764 (Independence Creek at the headspring).

Collectively, these sites provide continuous water quality and discharge data to monitor salinity, monitor persistent low dissolved oxygen, correlate water quality with changing aquatic communities, and support the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan.

Parameters Monitored: Specific Conductance, Temperature, pH, and dissolved oxygen are monitored by TCEQ using Greenspan CS4-1200 sondes, datalogger, solar power, and wireless communication.  USGS monitors discharge at this site for TCEQ under contract.

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The environmental issues in the watershed are long-term issues which TCEQ, TSSWCB, and other entities are working to address.  Low dissolved oxygen concentrations may be a naturally occurring phenomenon; however, a strong dataset is required to support any recommendation to revise water quality standards.  Golden alga blooms were first observed in the Pecos River and they persist today; golden alga blooms are believed to be associated with saline waters in this watershed.  The TSSWCB is implementing a watershed protection plan to manage water quality and water quantity in the Pecos River watershed by control/eradication of salt cedar (Tamerisk sp.), an invasive species that is replacing native plants, consuming large volumes of water and increasing the salinity of the Pecos River.

Data Use: Data from this and associated sites document long-term trends and changes in water quality in the Pecos River.  The data is used to support research and investigation into golden alga blooms.  This data supports work by the multi-agency Pecos River Salinity Advisory Group and the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan by monitoring changes in discharge and salinity during implementation of salt cedar management practices.  These sites support TCEQ’s Rio Grand Initiative (GI-394) in the overall contribution to Amistad Reservoir.  The data is available to local irrigators to determine the suitability of water in the river to irrigate crops.

Operator: TCEQ R-7 (Midland) staff (Greg Larson) has operated the water quality portion of this site since September 2004. He currently operates three additional sites on the Pecos River and one at the headwaters of Independence Creek. He is diligent in his operation and maintenance of the site. Operator logs are complete and current.  USGS monitors discharge at the site for TCEQ under contract.

Other Issues: Changes to Greg’s workload required a reduction in the frequency of visits to the site. Plans are underway to modify the site with a compressor to remove sediment between site visits. All of the equipment and supplies for this modification are in-house.

The flow station is costly to operate and maintain. The future of the flow station depends on funding. Currently, the site has funding through 8/31/2010 procedures.

Recommendations: 
1) Discontinue monitoring pH and DO at the site. 
2) Continue monitor temperature and specific conductance at the site.  
3) Install compressed air silt/sediment disrupter at the site.</description>

			<description>CAMS 731 – Petronila Creek

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=731

FY10Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network 
Site Review Summary

Environmental Issue(s): Chemical and biological conditions in Petronila Creek were dominated for more than 50 years by oil field brine discharges of about 50 times stream salinity.  In 1969, the Texas Legislature passed a law prohibiting open pit disposal of brine.  Direct brine discharges to Petronila Creek ceased in January, 1987.  The State of Texas requires water in Petronila Creek above Tidal, referred to as Segment 2204, to be suitable for aquatic life.  Segment 2204 was added to the Texas 2000 §303(d) list because the aquatic life use and respective indicators, chloride, sulfate, and TDS, exceeded the segment-specific criteria of 1500 mg/L, 500 mg/L, and 4000 mg/L, respectively.  Federal law requires States to identify  impaired water segments on the CWA§303(d) list and develop a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for impaired segments.  A TMDL and Implementation Plan (IP) for Segment 2204 were adopted by TCEQ in 2007. 

Parameters Monitored: Specific Conductance, Temperature, and Depth are monitored at the site using an  In Situ AquaTROLL 200, datalogger, solar power, and wireless communication.

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The most probable sources of the downstream increase in salinity are surface and near-surface discharge of saline water associated with hydrocarbon exploration and production, including discharge and infiltration into brine pits, direct discharge into creeks and ditches, and perhaps leaking injection or brine-disposal wells.  To better measure implementation of remediation/abatement projects aimed at reducing the high salinity that contributes to water quality degradation, the TMDL IP, Control Action 2.0, identifies deployment of a continuous monitor for specific conductance and temperature at Water Quality Station 13093 (Petronila Creek at FM 70 East of Bishop) to track water quality changes during TMDL implementation.  

Data Use: The CWQM site on Petronila Creek is Control Measure 2.0 and a primary Water Quality Indicator  in the TMDL IP.  The site is scheduled to operate for at least four years; however, if water quality has not improved, the data from the site may be needed for a longer period.    

Operator: Nueces River Authority (NRA) is the operator of the site. They are very dependable and have an interest in seeing conditions in Petronila Creek improve. They have maintained the required operations and maintenance schedule as required by the CWQM Program.  

Other Issues: The site operator has been instructed to operate the In Situ AquaTROLL 200 according to the manufacturer’s manual. TCEQ does not have an SOP for this instrument.  The temperature sensor for this instrument is internal and requires time to equilibrate.  Quarterly or short-term continuous monitoring might be effective but continuous monitoring of specific conductance is called for in the Implementation Plan. The site is scheduled for a partial audit and training visit this year. As part of the trip the site and equipment will be evaluated for the feasibility of performing USGS-based fouling measurement procedures.

Recommendations: 
1) Maintain continuous monitoring for at least one additional year using In Situ AquaTROLL 200. 
2) Develop an SOP for the In Situ AquaTROLL 200. 
3) Conduct partial site audit, training visit, and site evaluation during FY10.  
4) Train NRA staff to use LEADS CVS page. 
5) Assign user names/passwords for NRA staff.  
6) Conduct monthly service for other months.  
7) Delete salinity parameter from LEADS database.</description>

			<description>CAMS 735 - Pecos River Near Sheffield

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=735

FY10Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network 
Site Review Summary

Environmental Issue(s):  There are a number of environmental issues in the Pecos River watershed including elevated total dissolved solids (salinity), toxic golden alga blooms, and low dissolved oxygen.

CAMS 735, Pecos River Near Sheffield, is part of a “network” designed and implemented to evaluate these issues over hundreds of river miles. Other sites associated with this site are CAMS 710 (Pecos River at Pecos), CAMS 729 (Pecos River above Terrell/Val Verde County Line), CAMS 709 (Pecos River at Coyanosa), and CAMS 764 (Independence Creek at the headspring).

Collectively, these sites provide continuous water quality and discharge data to monitor salinity, monitor persistent low dissolved oxygen, correlate water quality with changing aquatic communities, and support the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan.

Parameters Monitored: Specific Conductance, Temperature, pH, and dissolved oxygen are monitored by TCEQ using Greenspan CS4-1200 sondes, datalogger, solar power, and wireless communication.  USGS monitors discharge at this site for TCEQ under contract.

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The environmental issues in the watershed are long-term issues which TCEQ, TSSWCB, and other entities are working to address.  Low dissolved oxygen concentrations may be a naturally occurring phenomenon; however, a strong dataset is required to support any recommendation to revise water quality standards.  Golden alga blooms were first observed in the Pecos River and they persist today; golden alga blooms are believed to be associated with saline waters in this watershed.  The TSSWCB is implementing a watershed protection plan to manage water quality and water quantity in the Pecos River watershed by control/eradication of salt cedar (Tamerisk sp.), an invasive species that is replacing native plants, consuming large volumes of water and increasing the salinity of the Pecos River.

Data Use: Data from this and associated sites document long-term trends and changes in water quality in the Pecos River.  The data is used to support research and investigation into golden alga blooms.  This data supports work by the multi-agency Pecos River Salinity Advisory Group and the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan by monitoring changes in discharge and salinity during implementation of salt cedar management practices.  These sites support TCEQ’s Rio Grand Initiative (GI-394) in the overall contribution to Amistad Reservoir.  The data is available to local irrigators to determine the suitability of water in the river to irrigate crops.

Operator: TCEQ R-7 (Midland) staff (Greg Larson) has operated the water quality portion of this site since September 2004. He currently operates three additional sites on the Pecos River and one at the headwaters of Independence Creek. He is diligent in his operation and maintenance of the site. Operator logs are complete and current.  USGS monitors discharge at the site for TCEQ under contract.

Other Issues: Changes to Greg’s workload required a reduction in the frequency of visits to the site. Plans are underway to modify the site with a compressor to remove sediment between site visits. All of the equipment and supplies for this modification are in-house.

The flow station is costly to operate and maintain. The future of the flow station depends on funding. Currently, the site has funding through 8/31/2010 procedures.

Recommendations: 
1) Discontinue monitoring pH and DO at the site. 
2) Continue monitor temperature and specific conductance at the site.  
3) Install compressed air silt/sediment disrupter at the site.
4) Conduct partial site audit, training visit, and site evaluation during FY10.</description>

			<description>CAMS 757 Rio Grande upstream of confluence with Rio Conchos.

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=757

RIO GRANDE 3.38 KILOMETERS UPSTREAM FROM THE CONFLUENCE WITH THE RIO CONCHOS 6.72 KILOMETERS WEST AND 2.445 KILOMETERS NORTH FROM THE INTERSECTION OF RANCH ROAD 170 AND RODRIQUEZ ROAD IN PRESIDIO COUNTY CAMS 757

CAMS 757 – Rio Grande Upstream of Rio Concho Confluence
Environmental issues in the Upper Rio Grande Project area include elevated salinity, low DO and associated fish kills, varying flow conditions, diminished biological communities, golden alga blooms, flood flow predictions, recreational river runners.

This site is part of a “network” required to evaluate problems that extend over hundreds of river miles. Sites include: CAMS 719 RG at Ft. Quitman; CAMS 720 Rio Grande at Castalon; 721 RG at Rio Grande Village; 757 RG Above Rio Conchos; 758 RG Below Rio Conchos; and, 759 RG at Fosters Weir. Currently, these sites are monitoring DO, Temp, pH, specific conductance, gage height, and flow. 

These sites were deployed to address the following water quality issues:
-Increasing salinity
-Low dissolved oxygen
-Water quality standards changes
-Diminishing aquatic communities
-Flood prediction (NOAA/NWS)
-Reintroduction of the Rio Grande silvery minnow, a long-term effort by USFWS
-Supports efforts defined in TCEQ’s Rio Grande Initiative (GI-394).
 
Since early 2000, Segment 2307 has been impaired for chloride and total dissolved solids. In 2010 Segment 2306 will be listed as impaired for TDS, chloride, and sulfate. The need for long-term continuous monitoring is needed as the salinity issue moves downstream and getting closer to impacting Amistad Reservoir. 

The data is used to capture long-term changes in water quality based on changing flow conditions from drought to floods.  The sites and data support the TCEQ’s Rio Grande Initiative (GI-394). The sites gather long-term data needed to make accurate changes to the water quality standards related to increasing total dissolved solids and to support bi-national efforts to address increasing salinity. The sites also support research into the cause of low DO and associated fish kills during high flow events and to document the diminished aquatic biological community (fish and benthics) when compared to other sites in the upper portion of the Rio Grande. Golden alga related blooms have also occurred in the Upper Rio Grande.

Beyond TCEQ, flow data is used by NOAA/NWS to predict flooding.  The National Parks Service (NPS) is using data to access funding for research in the Wild and Scenic River portion of the Rio Grande. NPS is also conducting research on the spring flow in the lower canyons of the Rio Grande, essential to assessing changes in water quality from upstream to downstream, and relies on data from these sites.

CAMS 757 should remain deployed as a long-term CWQMN site.</description>

FY10Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network 
Site Review Summary

Environmental Issue(s):  There are a number of environmental issues in the Pecos River watershed including elevated total dissolved solids (salinity), toxic golden alga blooms, and low dissolved oxygen.

CAMS 729, Pecos River above Terrell/Val Verde County Line, is part of a “network” designed and implemented to evaluate these issues over hundreds of river miles. Other sites associated with this site are CAMS 709 (Pecos River at Coyanosa),  CAMS 710 (Pecos River Near Coyanosa), CAMS 735 (Pecos River at Sheffield), and CAMS 729 (Pecos River above Terrell/Val Verde County Line).

Collectively, these sites provide continuous water quality and discharge data to monitor salinity, monitor persistent low dissolved oxygen, correlate water quality with changing aquatic communities, and support the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan.

Parameters Monitored: Specific Conductance, Temperature, pH, and dissolved oxygen are monitored by TCEQ using Greenspan CS4-1200 sondes, datalogger, solar power, and wireless communication.  

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The environmental issues in the watershed are long-term issues which TCEQ, TSSWCB, and other entities are working to address.  This site monitors the water quality at the headspring of Independence Creek, the primary source of freshening flows to the Pecos River befre its confluence with Amistad Reservoir.  Golden alga blooms were first observed in the Pecos River and they persist today; golden alga blooms are believed to be associated with saline waters in this watershed.  The TSSWCB is implementing a watershed protection plan to manage water quality and water quantity in the Pecos River watershed by control/eradication of salt cedar (Tamerisk sp.), an invasive species that is replacing native plants, consuming large volumes of water and increasing the salinity of the Pecos River.  The freshening flows from Independence Creek are critical to water quality entering Amistad Reservoir.

Data Use: Data from this and associated sites document long-term trends and changes in water quality in the Pecos River.  The data is used to support research and investigation into golden alga blooms.  This data supports work by the multi-agency Pecos River Salinity Advisory Group and the Pecos River Watershed Protection Plan by monitoring changes in discharge and salinity during implementation of salt cedar management practices.  These sites support TCEQ’s Rio Grand Initiative (GI-394) in the overall contribution to Amistad Reservoir.  The data is available to local irrigators to determine the suitability of water in the river to irrigate crops.

Operator: TCEQ R-7 (Midland) staff (Greg Larson) has operated the water quality portion of this site since September 2004. He currently operates three additional sites on the Pecos River and one at the headwaters of Independence Creek. He is diligent in his operation and maintenance of the site. Operator logs are complete and current.  

Other Issues: Changes to Greg’s workload required a reduction in the frequency of visits to the site. Plans are underway to modify the site with a compressor to remove sediment between site visits. All of the equipment and supplies for this modification are in-house.

Recommendations: 
1) Discontinue monitoring pH and DO at the site. 
2) Continue monitor temperature and specific conductance at the site.  
3) Install compressed air silt/sediment disrupter at the site.</description>

			<description>CAMS 765 Un-Named Tributary of Little Duffau Creek.

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=765

Approximately 1.4 km upstream from the confluence of Little Duffau Creek.

Environmental Monitoring and Response System – CAMS 701 (Green Creek), CAMS 702 (Bosque at Clifton), CAMS 703 (Leon at Gatesville), CAMS 704 (Resley Creek), CAMS 725 (Bosque at SH6), CAMS 726 (Scarborough Creek), CAMS 728 (Little Duffau Creek), and CAMS 765 (Un-named Tributary of Little Duffau Creek)

Environmental Issue(s):  The TCEQ Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network (CWQMN) was initiated in 2001 with four sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds.  The Bosque and Leon River watersheds were selected because of concerns related to impact of dairy wastes on the rivers and downstream water supplies including Lake Waco.  

Parameters Monitored: In July 2004, TCEQ initiated the Environmental Monitoring and Response System (EMRS) in these watersheds by expanding the initial sites with the addition of automated equipment to analyze selected nutrients (total reactive phosphorus, nitrate, and ammonia) in an effort to detect point and nonpoint pollutions sources to target field investigations using the data from these sites. 

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The EMRS sites were designed to monitor environmental data and transmit the data to Austin and send electronic notifications to the Stephenville Field Office when data exceeds established thresholds in order to target field investigations. During the first year, it was determined that these four stations monitored very large areas and were not effective in targeting field investigations. In 2005, TCEQ began expanding EMRS to micro watersheds in an attempt to achieve the project’s stated purpose of targeting field investigations of dairy-related pollution events. These sites are commonly on tributaries that are dry except during and following significant rainfall events.  Ultimately, EMRS included eight sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds; however, one site was severely damaged by floods (Leon River at Gatesville) and deleted.

Data Use: All CWQMN sites are being reviewed during FY10 to determine if they are meeting their intended purpose and to determine whether the individual sites should continue monitoring as currently configured, if they should be modified, or if they should be deleted.  The reviews are conducted by a team representing the Water Quality Planning Division and Field Operations Support Division. The EMRS sites are being reviewed as a group. The remaining seven sites remain in operation.

Operator: TCEQ staff from Region 4, Stephenville field office, operate CAMS 701, 703, 726, 728, and 765.  The Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research (TIAER) operate CAMS 702 and 725 under contract with TCEQ using CWA 319(h) grant funds. The operators are well trained and diligent in operation of the sites.

Other Issues: The Greenspan Aqualab nutrient analyzers are complex systems requiring significant support from the manufacturer and the manufacturer’s local representatives.  Greenspan is understaffed and numerous repairs have been delayed due to availability of Greenspan and Greenspan parts.  Many of the parts must be shipped from Australia.

Recommendations: The review team invited TCEQ stakeholders to discuss the EMRS project as a whole and the individual sites.  An electronic survey was distributed in February and an internal stakeholder meeting was conducted on March 5, 2010, to solicit input.  Based on the survey and the meeting results, three (3) EMRS sites had significant support to continue and four (4) sites had minimal or no support to continue from the internal stakeholders. The recommendations are summarized below by site.

CAMS 765 Un-named Trib of Little Duffau Creek - Continue operation of the site.  Stephenville staff support this site as effective to target field investigations in this microwatershed.</description>

			<description>CAMS 703 Leon River in Faunt Leroy Park at Gatesville.  Site terminated after flooding on 6/28/2007.

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=703

Environmental Monitoring and Response System – CAMS 701 (Green Creek), CAMS 702 (Bosque at Clifton), CAMS 703 (Leon at Gatesville), CAMS 704 (Resley Creek), CAMS 725 (Bosque at SH6), CAMS 726 (Scarborough Creek), CAMS 728 (Little Duffau Creek), and CAMS 765 (Un-named Tributary of Little Duffau Creek)

Environmental Issue(s):  The TCEQ Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network (CWQMN) was initiated in 2001 with four sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds.  The Bosque and Leon River watersheds were selected because of concerns related to impact of dairy wastes on the rivers and downstream water supplies including Lake Waco.  

Parameters Monitored: In July 2004, TCEQ initiated the Environmental Monitoring and Response System (EMRS) in these watersheds by expanding the initial sites with the addition of automated equipment to analyze selected nutrients (total reactive phosphorus, nitrate, and ammonia) in an effort to detect point and nonpoint pollutions sources to target field investigations using the data from these sites. 

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The EMRS sites were designed to monitor environmental data and transmit the data to Austin and send electronic notifications to the Stephenville Field Office when data exceeds established thresholds in order to target field investigations. During the first year, it was determined that these four stations monitored very large areas and were not effective in targeting field investigations. In 2005, TCEQ began expanding EMRS to micro watersheds in an attempt to achieve the project’s stated purpose of targeting field investigations of dairy-related pollution events. These sites are commonly on tributaries that are dry except during and following significant rainfall events.  Ultimately, EMRS included eight sites in the Bosque and Leon River watersheds; however, one site was severely damaged by floods (Leon River at Gatesville) and deleted.

Data Use: All CWQMN sites are being reviewed during FY10 to determine if they are meeting their intended purpose and to determine whether the individual sites should continue monitoring as currently configured, if they should be modified, or if they should be deleted.  The reviews are conducted by a team representing the Water Quality Planning Division and Field Operations Support Division. The EMRS sites are being reviewed as a group. The remaining seven sites remain in operation.

Operator: TCEQ staff from Region 4, Stephenville field office, operate CAMS 701, 703, 726, 728, and 765.  The Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research (TIAER) operate CAMS 702 and 725 under contract with TCEQ using CWA 319(h) grant funds. The operators are well trained and diligent in operation of the sites.

Other Issues: The Greenspan Aqualab nutrient analyzers are complex systems requiring significant support from the manufacturer and the manufacturer’s local representatives.  Greenspan is understaffed and numerous repairs have been delayed due to availability of Greenspan and Greenspan parts.  Many of the parts must be shipped from Australia.

Recommendations: The review team invited TCEQ stakeholders to discuss the EMRS project as a whole and the individual sites.  An electronic survey was distributed in February and an internal stakeholder meeting was conducted on March 5, 2010, to solicit input.  Based on the survey and the meeting results, three (3) EMRS sites had significant support to continue and four (4) sites had minimal or no support to continue from the internal stakeholders. The recommendations are summarized below by site.

CAMS 703 Leon at Gatesville - Previously deleted due to flood damages and poor EMRS location to target field investigations. Relocation or redeployment is not recommended.</description>

			<description>CAMS 719 Rio Grande at Ft. Quitman.  Currently offline pending repairs.

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=719

CAMS719 – Rio Grande at Ft. Quitman
Environmental issues in the Upper Rio Grande Project area include elevated salinity, low DO and associated fish kills, varying flow conditions, diminished biological communities, golden alga blooms, flood flow predictions, recreational river runners.

This site is part of a “network” required to evaluate problems that extend over hundreds of river miles. Sites include: CAMS 719 RG at Ft. Quitman; CAMS 720 Rio Grande at Castalon; 721 RG at Rio Grande Village; 757 RG Above Rio Conchos; 758 RG Below Rio Conchos; and, 759 RG at Fosters Weir. Currently, these sites are monitoring DO, Temp, pH, specific conductance, gage height, and flow. 

These sites were deployed to address the following water quality issues:
-Increasing salinity
-Low dissolved oxygen
-Water quality standards changes
-Diminishing aquatic communities
-Flood prediction (NOAA/NWS)
-Reintroduction of the Rio Grande silvery minnow, a long-term effort by USFWS
-Supports efforts defined in TCEQ’s Rio Grande Initiative (GI-394).
 
Since early 2000, Segment 2307 has been impaired for chloride and total dissolved solids. In 2010 Segment 2306 will be listed as impaired for TDS, chloride, and sulfate. The need for long-term continuous monitoring is needed as the salinity issue moves downstream and getting closer to impacting Amistad Reservoir. 

The data is used to capture long-term changes in water quality based on changing flow conditions from drought to floods.  The sites and data support the TCEQ’s Rio Grande Initiative (GI-394). The sites gather long-term data needed to make accurate changes to the water quality standards related to increasing total dissolved solids and to support bi-national efforts to address increasing salinity. The sites also support research into the cause of low DO and associated fish kills during high flow events and to document the diminished aquatic biological community (fish and benthics) when compared to other sites in the upper portion of the Rio Grande. Golden alga related blooms have also occurred in the Upper Rio Grande.

Beyond TCEQ, flow data is used by NOAA/NWS to predict flooding.  The National Parks Service (NPS) is using data to access funding for research in the Wild and Scenic River portion of the Rio Grande. NPS is also conducting research on the spring flow in the lower canyons of the Rio Grande, essential to assessing changes in water quality from upstream to downstream, and relies on data from these sites.

CAMS 757 should remain deployed as a long-term CWQMN site.</description>

			<description>CAMS 746 – Wichita River Downstream of City of Wichita Falls Reverse Osmosis Plant Discharge

http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/compliance/monops/water_site_photo.pl?cams=746

FY10Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Network 
Site Review Summary

Environmental Issue(s): The City of Wichita Falls reverse osmosis (RO) water treatment plant went into full-time production in early 2009. The plant discharges the briny reject water into the Wichita River. The upstream and downstream sites were installed to monitor the effects of the discharge on water quality, primarily specific conductance, at the suggestion of Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Parameters Monitored: The site monitors temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, and TDS.  Flow gage height and discharge are monitored by USGS under contract at CAMS 746.
The site is equipped with Greenspan CS4-1200 sonde, air compressor for silt/sediment dispersion, datalogger, solar power, and wireless IP telemetry.

Long-Term Continuous Monitoring:  The site was designed to document short-term and long-term effects on water chemistry due to the RO reject water discharge.

Data Use: Texas Parks and Wildlife is the primary user of the continuous water quality monitoring data from this site.  Continuous water quality data may be compared to biological assemblage data collected by Texas Parks and Wildlife to measure possible effects of the discharge on the biological assemblage.  

Operator: The high sediment load in the Wichita River has resulted in more frequent sonde exchanges than originally anticipated. Region 3 is understaffed for water quality monitoring.  Additionally, the TCEQ site operator’s workload is not limited to SWQM/ CWQMN.  The Red River Authority has begun assisting in the operation of the site. TPWD, the primary data user, could assume responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the site.

Other Issues: The upstream site has been vandalized on multiple occasions. Both sites have been damaged by flooding. Silt accumulation on the sonde sensors has been a continuing problem. A system using periodic discharges of compressed air to disperse accumulating silt and sediment was designed and deployed at this site. Based on visual observations the compressed air systems have reduced sediment accumulating on sensors. However, the effectiveness of the compressed air systems on sensor performance has not been measured quantitatively.  Recently, low-flow conditions and streambed changes resulted in the sonde being submersed only when the RO plant was discharging.

Recommendations: 
1) Discontinue monitoring at this site. 
2) Continue monitoring only if TPWD assumes responsibility for operation and maintenance of site. 
3) Train TPWD staff to use LEADS CVS page if they assume responsibility for the site.
4)  The CAMS stations should be relocated to CAMS 710 where silt/sediment is an issue.</description>
