Arroyo Colorado Watershed Projects

All current and recent TCEQ Nonpoint Source projects developing, updating, or implementing the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan
Title Description
Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan: Tracking and Inventory of Septic Systems A project to develop a watershed-wide septic system database.
Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan Update A project to learn more about the causes of varying levels of dissolved oxygen in the Arroyo Colorado’s tidal segment using a dissolved oxygen dynamics model. This model helped identify options for improving the dissolved oxygen levels, which were incorporated into an update to the Arroyo Colorado WPP.
Arroyo Colorado Watershed: Continuing Coordination This project supports the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Partnership and its implementation efforts through 2014.
Arroyo Colorado: Coordinating a Watershed Protection Plan Supported a watershed coordinator for the Arroyo Colorado WPP.
Arroyo Colorado: Implementing Low Impact Development (LID) Practices, Phase 1 A project that implemented part of the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) by funding LID projects in various cities in the Lower Rio Grande Valley
Arroyo Colorado: Implementing Low Impact Development (LID) Practices, Phase 2 A project to fund additional LID projects in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, implementing part of the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan (WPP)
Arroyo Colorado: Implementing Low Impact Development (LID) Practices, Phase 3 A project that implemented part of the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) by funding a third set of LID projects in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
Arroyo Colorado: Improving the McAllen Stormwater Facilities A project that installed and monitored improvements at three regional stormwater detention facilities (RSDFs) in the City of McAllen.
Arroyo Colorado: Los Fresnos Nature Park LID and Wetland Enhancement This project will install several low impact development features at a nature park, monitor stormwater features at nearby Los Fresnos High School, and use native vegetation to improve the function of a stormwater wetland.
Arroyo Colorado: Monitoring Low Impact Development Techniques This project will conduct water quality monitoring to determine the effectiveness of bioswales and bioretention systems.
Continuous Water Quality and Discharge Monitoring at Selected Sites in Texas For this project the U.S. Geological Survey's Texas Water Science Center is conducting continuous water quality monitoring at selected sites on the Rio Grande, the Pecos, and the North Bosque rivers.
