Coordinated Monitoring of Surface Water Quality

Latest available schedules, instructions, and strategy, for coordinated monitoring of surface water quality in Texas.

The coordination of monitoring resources throughout the State increases the efficiency of surface water data collection and analysis by the SWQM Program and participating programs—the Clean Rivers Program, state and federal agencies, municipalities, and others. Coordinated statewide monitoring reduces the duplication of effort and improves spatial coverage of monitoring sites and consistency of parametric coverage.
