A project to develop a Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) for Caddo Lake in northeast Texas.

Background

Caddo Lake and some of its tributaries have elevated levels of bacteria, pH, and mercury, and low levels of dissolved oxygen. The Caddo Lake watershed is primarily rural, and has extensive recreational uses that are affected by these water quality concerns.
